Nexstim Receives an Order for Two NBS Systems from a Finnish University Hospital24.5.2022 11:30:00 CEST | Press release

Press release, Helsinki, 24 May 2022 at 12:30 PM (EEST) Nexstim Receives an Order for Two NBS Systems from a Finnish University Hospital Nexstim Plc (NXTMH:HEX, NXTMS:STO) ("Nexstim" or "Company") has received an order for two NBS 5 systems from a university hospital in Finland. The customer is an experienced user of the Nexstim NBS 4 system, now acquiring the two new systems to replace the old system and to increase capacity. Nexstim’s NBS (Navigated Brain Stimulation) system is used, for example, in planning neurosurgery or radiation therapy after a patient has had a diagnosis of a brain tumor or other disorder. When the lesion is predicted to be close to functional areas of the brain—such as those responsible for speech production and limb movement —the brain maps generated with NBS can be invaluable when deciding the best, personalized treatment option for the patient. These specific NBS systems also include the software of an NBT® (Navigated Brain Therapy) system, allowing the sys

Sweegen Wins Stevia Reb M Patent Lawsuit Against PureCircle24.5.2022 11:04:00 CEST | Press release

Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif., May 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sweegen, the global pioneer in wellness ingredient technologies and innovations, announced its victory against PureCircle in a stevia Rebaudioside M (Reb M) patent lawsuit. "Today's judgment vindicates Sweegen and affirms the company's position as an industry leader in innovative sweetener solutions," said Steven Chen, CEO of Sweegen. PureCircle, acquired by Ingredion in 2020, had filed the 2018 lawsuit against Sweegen in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, accusing Sweegen of infringing two PureCircle patents covering the manufacture of Reb M. The legal tide turned on PureCircle when Sweegen obtained a summary judgment that both of PureCircle's asserted patents are invalid. Since it is impossible to infringe an invalid patent, the court's invalidation of the asserted patents ends the infringement case against Sweegen at the U.S. District Court. "As a holder of core proprietary technologies of
