Pharmacokinetic patent...!!!

Sponsored Links

Hello bloggers..!!!

It's been a long time i posted blogs and finally i m with my new blog regarding "PHARMACOKINETIC PATENTS".

A patent is nothing but a right to own a property,discovery or an invention.If it is a dicovery of a pharmaceutical product it is a pharmaceutical patent.

A pharmacokinetic patent is a patent in pharmaceutical field combined with the pharmacokinetic parameters mainly AUC and Plasma Concentration,like suppose that a product is discovered by a company A and this company A has finished all requires tests like PK -PD parameters and finally earned a patent on the product with X and Y PK properties.

(Now note that the patent earned by this company A doesn't specifically mention the numerical range of the PK parameters )

Now there is a company B that manufactured another product and got some PK parameters with different values and now company A claims that the PK values obtained for company B already in patent earned by A.If company B claims that the values got by them are not mentioned clearly in the patent,company A mentions the range of the PK parameters.

there is an example of this PK parameters incase of MUCINEX and GUAFENESIN(Adams Respiratory Therapeutics, Inc. v. Perrigo Co.)

Welcome Sandhya, Good information. Thank you. This clearly should open up the mmind of researchers and encourage them to take up reasearch even on patented product, as their could be some left out area under the patent. Good issue, good blog. Thank you again.
