Senior Scientific Announces Issuance of U.S. Patent for the Detection, Measurement and Imaging of Cancer Cells Using Nanoparticles

Manhattan Scientifics Subsidiary Expands Patent Portfolio

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Senior Scientific, LLC, a unit of Manhattan Scientifics (OTCQB: MHTX) and a developer of molecular imaging and nanobiotechnology for the early detection and localization of cancer and other human diseases, today announced that the United States Patent Office (USPTO) has issued U.S. Patent No. 8,447,379 entitled "Detection, measurement, and imaging of cells such as cancer and other biologic substances using targeted nanoparticles and magnetic properties thereof."


The patent includes claims directed to detecting and measuring biological substances such as cancer cells. The methods can be used in humans, with no harmful radiation, and can find cancers much earlier than is possible with conventional technologies.

The technology is based on the work of Edward R. Flynn, PhD, in NanoMagnetic RelaxometryTM. The issued patent is further confirmation of the pioneering nature of Dr. Flynn's work.

Gerald Grafe, president of Senior Scientific, said, "We are moving forward and making progress to bring Dr. Flynn's technology to market, and this patent is an important addition to our intellectual property estate protecting the commercial value of the work."

Dr. Flynn, Chief Scientist of Senior Scientific, said, "I am encouraged to see my work heading to market, and pleased that we now also have this patent to protect the business."
