(OTCQB: AMBS) recently won a major victory when its patent for MANF, the company’s proprietary anti-apoptosis therapeutic protein, was challenged in Europe.

The Opposition Division held that Hermo Phrama’s arguments did not prejudice the maintenance of the patent as originally granted, with broad claims covering MANF and its derivatives.
