Protecting the Pot of Gold: Patent Applications for Therapeutic Antibodies

Over the last 10 years, multiple patents on therapeutic antibodies have been invalidated in the courts, often for lack of written description. Many other cases are working their way through the courts and the PTAB. This webinar will review major CAFC and PTAB decisions affecting therapeutic antibodies and will explore the best ways to obtain valuable and enforceable patents on therapeutic antibodies. The main issues to be covered are Section 101 issues (laws of nature, natural phenomena and natural products), obviousness and written description.

  • Actavis and equivalence – where are we now? Oct 11 2018 2:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    Douglas Drysdale, partner, HGF

  • Second Medical Use Patent Opportunities from Personalised Healthcare Inventions Recorded: Sep 11 2018 58 mins
    Dr. Laurence Gainey, Patent Director, HGF
    Personalised healthcare (sometimes referred to as precision medicine) is an evolving field in medicine where a therapeutic treatment is tailored to an individual with a particular disease. The patenting of personalised healthcare inventions has proved problematic in a number of jurisdictions, most notably the USA. However, various aspects of these inventions are patentable in Europe.

    This webinar will set the scene as to what personalised healthcare is and will run through the history of second medical use patenting in Europe. Discussing key cases such as G5/83, T1020/03 and G2/08.

    It will then focus on how second medical use patenting can be applied to personalised healthcare inventions and will give examples of claim language that is finding favour at the EPO.

  • WIPR and BSKB present: Obviousness in PTAB Trials for Chem/Pharma/Bio Patents Recorded: Oct 13 2016 66 mins
    Gerald Murphy (BSKB), Eugene Perez (BSKB), Kristi Sawert (USPTO), Peter Scott (WIPR)
    Challenging patents involving unpredictable technologies for obviousness is particularly difficult due to the well-established factor of “reasonable expectation of success” and the related KSR factor of “limited number of predictable solutions”. This webinar, presented by attorneys that have successfully argued on both sides of this issue for chem/pharma/bio patents, will discuss two to three leading PTAB decisions, including related appeals, that illustrate when obviousness challenges have and have not been successful. The case discussions will provide (1) a summary of the documentary evidence relied on, including critical excerpts from that evidence, (2) a summary of the “story” that was being told by each party and (3) the role that expert testimony appeared to play in the PTAB decisions. This one-hour seminar will also briefly explore what types of cases are better challenged in court and what types of cases are better challenged at the PTAB. The goals of the seminar are to allow parties to evaluate the chances of success for a contemplated or recently filed PTAB challenge and to help parties to a PTAB proceeding develop a record to support their respective positions. CLE available.
  • WIPR and BSKB present -Disparaging marks: The Redskins, The Slants and the USPTO Recorded: May 11 2016 61 mins
    Robert Kenney (BSKB), John Ferman (BSKB), Professor Steven D. Jamar (Howard IP Program), Peter Scott (WIPR)
    When the Federal Circuit last year effectively struck down the portion of section 2(a) of the Lanham Act that bars so-called ‘disparaging’ trademarks in the US, it paved the way for a potential Supreme Court review of the issue. In this webinar, we discuss the implications of the decision, the case that prompted it, The Redskins, The Slants and other potentially ‘disparaging’ trademarks, and the implications for US practice. Robert Kenney and John Ferman from Birch Stewart Kolasch & Birch and Professor Steven D. Jamar from the Howard IP Program are joined by Peter Scott, to consider this controversial issue. We hope you’ll join us for a lively debate.

    1-hour long

    CLE available.
