J A Kemp Webinar: Obtaining Patent Protection for Polymorphs of Drug Compounds

January 28, 2020 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm UTC

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
