INFORMATION DISCLOSURE STATEMENT 

Hon. Commissioner of 

Patents and Trademarks 
Washington, DC 20231 

Sir: 

In order to comply with 37 CFR 1 .97 and 1 .98, attached hereto is a 



copy of Form PTO-1449 and copies of the documents listed thereon. 



09/869538 

JC18 ftec'd PCT/PTO 2 7JUN 200! 

In accordance with MPEP Sections 609 and 707.05(b), it is requested 
that each document cited (including any cited in applicant's specification which is 
not repeated on the attached Form PTO-1449) be given thorough consideration and 
that it be cited of record in the prosecution history of the present application by 
initialing Form PTO-1449 next to the document. Such initialing is requested even if 
the Examiner does not consider a cited document to be sufficiently pertinent to use 
in a rejection, or otherwise does not consider it to be prior art for any reason, or 
even if the Examiner does not believe that the guidelines for citation have been fully 
complied with. This is requested so that each document becomes listed on the 
face of the patent issuing on the present application. 

This submission is filed before a first action on the merits has been 

mailed. 

The present Information Disclosure Statement is being submitted in 
compliance with 37 CFR 1 .56, but the citation of such document is not to be 
construed as an admission that such document is necessarily relevant or prior art. 
No representation is intended that the cited documents represent the results of a 
complete search, and it is anticipated that the Examiner, in the normal course of 
examination, will make an independent search and will determine the best prior art 
consistent with 37 CFR 1.104(a) and 1.106(b) and, in the course of each search, 
will review for relevance every document cited on the attached form even if not 
initialed.

Early and favorable consideration is earnestly solicited. 



Respectfully submitted,
