In its Complaint, PSN alleges that defendant Orbigen has infringed claims of at least '443 and '414 patents through, amongst other activities, the manufacture, use, offer for sale, sale, and/or distribution of products and services utilizing Sphingosine 1-Phosphate Receptor 2/ aka Edg 5/ aka H218 p ("SIP2") that fall within the scope of claims of these patents, including at least the following products: Rabbit Endothelial differentiation sphingolipid G-protein-coupled receptor 5 (EDG5) polyclonal antibody (Catalog # PAB-10630); and Chicken Endothelial differentiation sphingolipid G-protein-coupled receptor 5 (EDG5) polyclonal antibody (Catalog # PAB-U0005).
