mPhase Technologies Receives Notice of Allowance of a Patent for New Drug Delivery System

[ACCESSWIRE]

CLIFTON, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / January 5, 2016 / mPhase Technologies, Inc. (OTC: XDSL) (http://www.mPhaseTech.com) is pleased to announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has awarded a Notice of Allowance of a Patent covering a "new and useful" Drug Delivery System said Ronald A. Durando, the Company's Chairman, President and CEO.

The invention allows a drug delivery system to automatically dispense a pre-set dosage of a drug or medication. "Many individuals require a routine application of drugs. For instance, individuals with diabetes require routine injections of insulin to maintain proper blood sugar levels. People with various skin conditions require a routine application of medicated creams," Mr. Durando explains.

"Individuals have been required to manually measure out the required amount of medication, which is highly susceptible to human error, particularly in individuals with impacted mental states. Hiring a health professional to handle this on a day-to-day basis can be cost-prohibitive," mPhase Technologies CEO explains. "That is why there is a need for a new and improved drug delivery system to automatically dispense a pre-set dosage of medication."

The invention includes one or more reservoirs, hermetically sealed with the correct amount of medication and covered by a membrane, which can be breached or rendered permeable in several different ways when a dose of the medication needs to be delivered.

"We believe this new invention will be a major positive for the Company and its shareholders," Mr. Durando said. The Company also announced that it has retained E & E Communications, Texas, to assist its investor relations efforts.
