BIOGEN V MEDEVA PDF

Held: The claim for a DNA patent was too broad; no new principle was shown, and other means were available of achieving the technical effect claimed. The question of whether an invention was obvious should be treated with appropriate respect by an appellate court, and specific findings of fact, even by the most meticulous judge, are inherently an incomplete statement of the impression which was made upon him by the primary evidence. Disclosure must enable the invention to be performed to the full extent of the monopoly claimed. It is because specific findings of fact, even by the most meticulous judge, are inherently an incomplete statement of the impression which was made upon him by the primary evidence.

When is a product claim in a patent insufficient? The issue is to which the extent of the monopoly given by a product claim in a patent. Kitchin J had extended the application of the Biogen test for patent insufficiency such that the scope of the monopoly for a product claim could be severely reduced. The Facts. The Patents Court concluded that, as was generally believed, a single enantiomer of a known chemical compound was not patentable.

Interesting to the pharmaceutical industry, increasingly reliant upon life cycle management, is why precisely this should be the case. The High Court found these claims were invalid for insufficiency. He concluded that this should not entitle Lundbeck to a monopoly of every way of making it i. A product claim is sufficiently enabled if the specification discloses one way of making it. It is sufficiently enabled if the specification and common general knowledge enables the skilled person to make it.

One method is enough. The test could not be extended to an ordinary product claim in which the product is not defined by a class of processes of manufacture or is not simply a member of a large class. An inventor who finds a way to make a new product is entitled to claim the product however made and however used, even if the desirability of making it was known. The Court of Appeal also upheld Kitchin J in holding that the product claims were novel and inventive.

As to patent validity it may open up a new trend into a more patentee friendly disposition. Advances in industrial chemical processes have made it economical for pharmaceutical manufacturers to take drugs that were originally marketed in racemic form and market the individual enantiomers, each of which may have unique properties.

For some drugs, such as zopiclone , only one enantiomer eszopiclone is active; the FDA has allowed such once-generic drugs to be patented and marketed under another name. In other cases, such as ibuprofen , it is not economically feasible to isolate a single enantiomer from a racemic mixture or to synthesize just the active one, and therefore a racemic mixture is marketed, with an essentially doubled recommended dose see www.

Do Patents Perform Like Property? The First Instance The Patents Court concluded that, as was generally believed, a single enantiomer of a known chemical compound was not patentable.
