Identifying different polymorphic forms of pharmaceutical compounds is an important part of drug discovery and development. There is a perception that it is difficult to secure patent protection for new polymorphs. However, with careful drafting and consideration of the specific advantages associated with the polymorph of interest, patents directed to polymorphs of commercial significance can be obtained. This webinar will discuss some of the issues faced during the drafting and prosecution of patent applications for polymorphs and how those issues can be addressed.
Topics will include:
How to draft claims directed to polymorphs
Other drafting tips for polymorph applications
Establishing novelty and inventive step for polymorphs
Other issues to be aware of
This is a technical webinar aimed at:
In-house IP practitioners working in the drug development field
Attorneys involved in drafting, prosecuting and advising on patent claims for polymorphs which could be pursued in Europe
Practitioners having an interest in polymorphs and pharmaceutical inventions
