GenericsWeb recently produced the above-titled webinar to demonstrate some techniques for identifying ‘key’ patent protection of established pharmaceutical products.
Faced with many different ‘expiry dates’ for a given pharmaceutical product, it is often a complicated task to determine whether the date will constrain generic competition completely or only for certain product lines or indications. Often the most complex molecules to establish key patent protection for are biologics, which can be protected by many ‘platform’ patents held by numerous patentees.
GenericsWeb guides you through some techniques to quickly and easily identify key patent protection, as well as where such techniques often fail when used alone. Which sources to use, how best to collate this critical information and suitable approaches to analyzing it were discussed, along with specific reference to a case study using GenericsWeb’s Pipeline Patent Intelligence.
