November 28, 2011 - A panel of judges at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office found in favor of InSite Vision Inc. in a patent interference dispute with the University of California, San Francisco.

The patent interference litigation concerned two patents, assigned to InSite Vision, which cover InSite's AzaSite products for treating bacterial eye infections.

The University of California claimed that both inventions were developed by a former UC employee alone and without any collaboration with InSite, but the USPTO entered judgment against that claim.
