Silvia Salvadori - Methods of Treatment Claims Found as Patent EligibleOn June 7, 2018, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued another memorandum on patent eligibility: the Vanda Memo (click here to view PDF copy). The memo is based on a recent case decided by the Federal Circuit, Vanda Pharmaceuticals Inc. v. West-Ward Pharmaceuticals.

Interpreting the Memo

Specifically, the memo outlines that methods of treatment claims can be found to be patent eligible without requiring a showing of “nonroutine or unconventional steps.” So, methods of treatment claims should not be found to be patent ineligible because they are not directed to a judicial exception (Step 1A: NO).

However, while the memo clears the way to methods of treatment claims, unlike those outlined in Mayo, it propels further upward the way to eligibility for diagnostic claims. In fact, one way in which the Federal Circuit distinguished the claims in Vanda from the claims in Mayo was to characterize the Mayo claims as having a diagnostic focus. The claims in the Mayo case were held to be non-patent eligible because they were directed to a relationship between concentrations of a certain metabolites in the blood and the likelihood that a certain drug dosage would have proved to be either ineffective or cause harm. That relationship was considered to be a law of nature, and therefore non-patent eligible.

Fortunately in Vanda the court did not find any need to invoke a judicial exception. Please contact me at silvia@salvadorilaw.com with questions or comments.

  53. A Clever Way to locate Free of charge Adult Chat Rooms!

    Chatting over the internet is hugely popular. The problem is
    there are not many free adult forums where we can easily discuss adult
    topics. Due to their popularity, web owners increasingly choose to charge
    for your service. In this article, you will learn how you can locate fairly easily numerous these chat communities, many
    of which are entirely free.
    It has become difficult to find good places for adults to
    have a chat. Most of this is because of the spread of instant messengers,
    virtual worlds, and internet sites. The few good chat sites
    available are generally full or, worse still, full and intent on asking you to pay a
    membership fee. To most individuals, it seems purchasing of fine, fun, lively free places
    for adults with an adult chat have died. Thankfully, there’s a
    good clever means for us to still find good rooms.

    All with the big dating communities offer their members free adult boards.
    Now, I’m sure you happen to be thinking, “Yes, which internet dating sites also charge you a regular membership of these free rooms!” This is not forever the situation. Many such chat communities are free, others are
    free but have limited features to the non-paying members,
    while others still provide a no cost service for girls.

    The attractiveness of joining a large, well-known dating community is basically that you get given use of an enormous
    adult chatting community which includes hundreds, sometimes lots of people deploying it at a single time.
    Better yet, their rooms tend to offer users the opportunity to hook in their webcams.
    So you could be chatting away in the room and
    have to be able to click an account and view them on their own webcam,
    too!
