Protecting the Pot of Gold: Patent Applications for Therapeutic Antibodies

Presented by

Gerald Murphy (BSKB), John Heithaus (BSKB), Peter Scott (WIPR)

About this talk

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.
