20:58 EDTNEPT, ACSTNeptune, Enzymotec conclude patent infringement settlement, license agreement
Neptune Technologies & Bioressources (NEPT) and Acasti Pharma (ACST), a Neptune subsidiary, announce that a final and binding patent infringement settlement and license agreement has been signed with Enzymotec and Enzymotec USA, that resolves the International Trade Commission's, ITC, investigation of infringement of Neptune's composition of matter patents, related federal court actions initiated by Neptune against Enzymotec and its distributors, and various patent review proceedings requested by Enzymotec. As part of the settlement, Neptune granted a world-wide, non-exclusive, royalty-bearing license to Enzymotec, allowing it to market and sell its nutraceutical products under Neptune's '348 family of patents. Under the terms of the settlement, royalty levels in the USA are dependent on the outcome of pending inter partes review proceedings before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, USPTO, regarding certain claims of Neptune's '351 composition of matter patent. Furthermore, royalty levels in Australia are dependent on a potential request by Enzymotec to the Australian Patent Office for a post-grant review of certain claims of Neptune's allowed composition of matter patent application. Enzymotec also agreed to pay Neptune a non-refundable one-time upfront settlement payment. The financial terms of the license are confidential between the parties.

08:08 EDTACSTAcasti Pharma completes Phase II TRIFECTA, Pharmacokinetic trials
Acasti Pharma announces the completion of two trials, the Phase II double-blind, placebo-controlled, or TRIFECTA, study and the Pharmacokinetic trial. The primary objective of the TRIFECTA trial is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of CaPre in reducing triglyceride levels in patients with mild to severe hypertriglyceridemia. Given that the stopping threshold had been met, the data review committee members recommended that there was sufficient evidence of a treatment effect that warranted the termination of the study. The corporation intends to unblind the study and top-line results are expected by the end of September, with full data coming out in the following quarter. Acasti's Pharmacokinetic trial is designed to evaluate blood profiles and bioavailability in healthy human volunteers taking single and multiple doses of Capre. Top-line results are expected to be available by the end of September, with full data coming out in the following quarter.
