Episurf Medical (NASDAQ: EPIS B) has received another Notice of Allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

This is the first approval in this patent family.
"Episurf’s implant technology has been adapted to the ankle joint through the development of Episealer® Talus. We already have IP protection for the Episealer® Talus technology.
