There are lots of ways you can treat the data to find Mn and Mw. Spangenberg is on the record somewhere saying, in effect, that it’s time to find a new grift. And the inventors probably never gave it a second thought. Just a note, if you are wrongly issued a deed of ownership, it can be taken away. on the Judiciary, 96th Cong., 1st Sess. But the prior art was using average roughness, which which meant that the ranges were the same or overlapping IF the claimed “roughness factor” was peak to valley. Sandoz is the most expensive genertic Adderall brand if you get it without a health plan. He used different methods than I did (of course, I mistakenly found the median instead of the mean), but we ended up with similar results, except for Mn of the 7.7kDa sample, but the median would be an underestimate of the mean when you have a long tail. The district court relied upon that conclusion in its analysis. This is NOT a typical Malcolm post, so the “glad-handed” spin from MaxDrei has the opposite effect of perhaps what MaxDrei wanted, while at the same time ignores the fact that Malcolm is actually bashing MaxDrie’s usual mantra of EP Uber Alles. Wow. Is it a solid treatment? Sandoz Adderall is the smoothest Adderall in my opinion, meaning there aren't a lot of hills and valleys when you're taking the proper amount. I have tried every single brand and strength of adderall generics. Teva is going down in standard as well. Third, reexamination would reinforce “investor confidence in the certainty of patent rights” by affording the PTO a broader opportunity to review “doubtful patents”. The “over” politeness rings hollow, a fake mask that should be avoided as the “front” that it is. 126 Cong.Rec. But then somebody might figure out how to design around our invention! whether perceived or real. #$%! On this record, there is not reasonable certainty that molecular weight should be measured using Mp. But when Patent A is obtained by arguing that “X is white” and continuation Patent B is obtained by arguing that “X is black”, then one of those two patents is almost certainly invalid. Adderall. these problems are to be resolved by the Supreme Court link to cafc.uscourts.gov. In a companion decision issued yesterday, the Federal Circuit, 2 to 1, set aside the modified injunction of the district court and vacated the contempt order. But the system IS being used by accused infringers to game the system via the PTO’s lower standard of proof and BRI. Reexaminations were put forward as a way for the PTO to reexamine applications primarily as a benefit to patent owners — to shore up the validity of their patents and inspire “investor confidence.”. This case illustrates when the chickens released by that inattention come home to roost, in litigation, years later. If you do not meet the eligibility requirements for the Teva Cares Foundation Patient Assistance Programs, you may be eligible for assistance from other programs that we offer. That’s the only way I can read it, but that argument doesn’t make a lot of sense to me, and I wouldn’t buy it. 2069, 2070 (Oct. 31, 1979). Here, Mp (mass of peak) might be very similar equal to Mn (average weight). Adderall IR 10mg is a blue, round pill printed with AD on one side and 10 on the other. Nobody cares — and nobody should care — about what some European “specialists” think the term “really” means. Perhaps every value with standard moniker (molecular weight, elasticity, hardness, color temperature, viscosity, color temperature, neutron flux, and even electrical resistance) might each be measured with several different techniques that yield different values but are still expressed in the same units. I’m in the process of demanding my insurance cover the brand name adderall IR as obviously the big pharmaceutical companies are watering down the product for money while they comprise people’s lives and health. Also, I thought Mp was from the mole fraction trace, but I was mistaken; it is read from the mass fraction trace. I was under the impression that it was obvious Mn (I suspect the majority of polymer chemists would guess this). Why not both? makes invalidation based on prior art easier. Of course, this is a factual inquiry which this court would not have considered anyway. >It noted that experts testified that Mn and Mw can be obtained from the chromatogram and calibration curve, but doing so would require additional data manipulation and calculations not disclosed in the specification. Thanks for your effort. If you fail to properly disclose something (fraud) and it get’s invalidated, you lose it. So I was wondering if the Sandoz/Eon, CorePharma, or any other version of instant release Adderall is easier to swallow and/or doesn't taste nasty.  The Court held that, when reviewing a district court’s resolution of subsidiary factual matters made in the course of its construction of a patent claim, the Federal Circuit must apply a “clear error,” not a de novo, standard of review.. Also, I’d be careful about demanding Patents and Personal Property be treated the same. For more information about Adderall®, please contact Teva Pharmaceuticals at 1-888-838-2872. MD MM, you think it a foregone conclusion that a change of horse activates the gong that sounds “INVALID”. A more logical argument would be that if the patent is invalidated at a later date, the patent owner should be able to apply for a refund of fees… if it can be determined that they didn’t improperly apply for the patent in the first place. However, like Hunter says, Mp is seldom used (see 232), and I agree with this assertion. And Mw is usually called “weight average molecular weight.” If they argued it was Mn, they could have said yes, there is some variation (the 16% quoted above), but it’s clearly not Mp because the variation in Fig. The Federal Circuit is correct that introducing an expert to testify that “I’d resolve the contradiction/ambiguity in the instrinsic evidence this way” does not change the fact that the instrinsic evidence is contradictory and the undefined claim term is ambiguous. You really do not want your personal property be taken away but with anything else but with clear and convincing evidence. One group's side effects appear like taking too much Adderall side-effects: sleep less, eat less, more side-effects, less duration, jitteriness. At Sandoz, we discover new ways to improve and extend people’s lives. “In my view, it is really this late-stage change-in-definition that led to the Federal Circuit’s indefiniteness holding.”, EPLUS, INC. v. LAWSON SOFTWARE, INC. You wrote “20%” as some type of gauge, and I note the question mark, but what would be the appropriate gauge – and perhaps more importantly, why? Further, the new ‘reasonable certainty’ definiteness requirement under Nautilus made the invalidity holding even easier to justify. Malcolm, you seem to have a real problem with the concept of personal property. Follow the directions on the prescription label. By law patents are personal property and carries with it clear and convincing evidence, facts or law aside. Bottom line: get used to it or get out of the game. There is no question that congress intended reexaminations to benefit patent owners. These de novo issues include ultimate claim construction outcome, findings regarding intrinsic evidence, and (according to this opinion) the decision on how to apply any subsidiary factual findings in the analysis. Do you really want government to take away your house, car, bank account at anything else than with clear and convincing evidence? data was shifted; ~25%. He and I had long discussions on this. Also, Fig. I think they really shot themselves in the foot by arguing that it was Mp in order to try to overcome the original indefiniteness argument. The other group's side effects almost resemble the opposite of what Adderall should be doing: physical weakness, decreased motivation, no help in focusing, sleeping more , strong emotional problems. First, the new procedure could settle validity disputes [as an alternative to litigation] more quickly and less expensively than the often protracted litigation involved in such cases. However, I have not done peptide work, and for all I know people could use Mp to refer to average molecular weight in that subfield (see 227), and Dr. Grant may be correct. The best generic is sandoz which is extremely hard to find. I guess the English court was more willing to presume validity until somebody actually proves that the disclosure is insufficient to put the invention into effect. Good points. Taking up the remand from the Supreme Court, a divided Federal Circuit panel has held true to its prior decision in Teva v. Sandoz – holding once again that the lower court’s claim construction was incorrect and that the asserted claims (Group I) are invalid as indefinite. The attempted spin f001ed no one Max. Thanks in advance for fleshing out your thoughts. collateral estoppel should be applied with caution. Knowing that it is from Fig. Or runs out with your car? It must be quite a help, I imagine, in such a delicate case, also for the Federal Circuit judges to read through the English Decision, because the English patents judges are specialist patent jurists with a science degree followed by at least 20 years of intensive and continuous experience in patent litigation. If there’s a surge of such circumstances, for whatever reason, then the application should not be “rare” but more frequent. To me, this case could’ve been caused by a drafter not realizing that molecular weight can be determined using three different methods, each of which could have a different result. 2. I literally just heard a advertisement on my pandora where an ‘innovator” or their attorney was qqin about too many “innovators” being forced “out of the game” by the new proposed bill in congress. It’s unclear what happened in this case, at least by reading the current decision. Do not suddenly stop your medicine. Mw would larger, because Mw is the mass at which the total mass of polymers above Mw is equal to the total mass of polymers below Mw, IIRC. They got this one right. It is reasonable to assume that anything coming out of the Fed. It’s not clear what that’s supposed to mean. victory from the already closed jaws of defeat. I've used Sandoz generic IR and its amazing. Active Ingredient: dextroamphetamine saccharate, amphetamine aspartate monohydrate, dextroamphetamine sulfate, USP, amphetamine sulfate, USP. I do not know whether in fact these people were completely ignorant of the difference between the measurement techniques or whether they were simply being dishonest, but I always felt that they could not have been that ignorant. 2 would have to be much larger, like 100% (since the peaks are both around 8k). “The right to sue people verus ownership of a house.”. How do you differentiate how the law treats your own bank account or house than patents…professor? U.S. Patent 9,040,018 recites “kilodaltons as measured by gradient polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis” but does not specify Mp, Mw, or Mn. Thanks Obama. Second, the procedure would allow courts to refer patent validity questions to the expertise of the Patent Office. So there’s this ratio called polydispersity (PDI), which is Mw/Mn. this case was not final. One can see that NONE of the congressional purposes and objectives are being currently met by today’s process abusers. Even the practitioners that are careful to specify the technique used to measure molecular weight appear to disregard the possibility that Mp, Mw, and Mn might be so far apart that a single expressed range would be indefinite. Ask your doctor or health care professional for advice. What’s the alternative? In fact, it’s a really old one. Or better yet: a patent. Subscribe to the blogAbout 25,000 individuals now receive Patently-O via e-mail each morning. Following administration of a single dose 10 or 30 mg of Adderall ® to healthy volunteers under fasted conditions, peak plasma concentrations occurred approximately 3 hours post-dose for both d-amphetamine and l-amphetamine. Litigants these days routinely check out the EPO file wrapper in the patent family case(s). When they accused my client of infringement, the patent attorney who had prosecuted the application and now representing his client in litigation asserted the claims against our products measuring our roughness using average roughness. Because … progress! As well as name brand. Amphetamine salt combo (Adderall) is a moderately priced drug used to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and narcolepsy (uncontrollable desire for sleep or sudden attacks of deep sleep). 1, I can see how one could argue that it’s Mp, since, within the 16% error, the peaks match the molecular weights. There is no need to inject the strawman of “typically through the willy-nilly introduction of new definitions (or worse, new terminology).“. If not, where is the court in London going astray? And it is not surprising that defendants pursue The FDA said that Teva's authentic Adderall 30 mg tablets are round, orange/peach in color, and have " dp" embossed on one side and "30" on the other side of the tablet. And while I question the wisdom and propriety of the Perhaps they used one and only one analytical method (some language in the current decision might imply this)? Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc. v. Sandoz, Inc., 574 U.S. ___ (2015), is a landmark patent Supreme Court case disputing over the Copaxone patent. In the Markman hearing, Sandoz argued that a claim was fatally indefinite for failing to identify which of three possible meanings a particular claim term, related to the molecular weight of a component of the drug, should be interpreted to have. A number of times I have read reviews about a particular generic before taking it, and if they were negative I would almost always experience the same issues. See PatLex. In addressing the details of this case on remand, the Federal Circuit first noted that there is no express definition of the molecular weight term and that the patentee’s expert had admitted that the term has no “default” meaning even to a person of skill in the art. The meaning one of skill in the art would attribute to the term molecular weight in light of its use in the claims, the disclosure in the specification, and the discussion of this term in the prosecution history is a question of law. Still, avoiding alcohol while you take this drug may be a good idea. . I just realized I found the median values above, not the mean/average. In some patients, the medications were released more slowly than extended-release Concerta There’s no reason why a patent should not be subject to the same issues. Congress had an important public purpose in mind when it enacted the reexamination statute. that “molecular weight” means Mp in the context of the claimed invention and held that the claims are not indefinite. DC: the majority strongly implies that “clear and convincing evidence” is required to hold a claim invalid for indefiniteness: I suppose the alternate interpretation of the passage you cited is that the Federal Circuit simply believes that the claim is clearly and convincingly indefinite and should be held invalid whatever standard is applied. When the patents themselves are simply variations of “do this type of commerce on a computer” or “do this routine ancient information processing activity in this specific context on a computer”, the cost of “innovation” is close to zero. is nefarious. I have taken adderall made by every manufacturer I believe has made adderall, both IR and XR versions. Judge Mayer also suggested that the proper course of action when vacating a lower court claim construction is not to find the claim indefinite but instead to remand to consider whether further factual development is needed. In that later-case, the examiner rejected a claimed “molecular weight” term as indefinite under 112(b) and the applicant at that time responded that the best definition of molecular weight used weight average rather than peak average. I was thinking that if Mp, Mn and Mw measurements substantially (=/- 20% ?) This is the legal question—and on this question—we reverse the district court. Scientist: How do you differentiate how the law treats your own bank account or house than patents…professor? Larger elutes first, smaller elutes last.  In doing so, the judge relied in part on expert witness testimony. Cir. Sorry I'm new to the community. Teva's IR and XR is okay. Take your doses at regular intervals. So not very close at all. Id. The applicant distinguished prior art because of the order of magnitude difference between the prior art and the claimed “roughness factor” range. through its precedent on finality or through Congress, I like that reticence. There was nothing “delicate” about this case. My guess is if they are within the “error” of the GPC (the 16.7%), then you could try to argue it doesn’t really matter, because presumably Mn, Mp, and Mw could be considered “equal within error”? Except you usually get a nice little printout from the software that does it all for you, I’m betting people just copied the numbers from the prinout; usually peaks are labeled, and Mw, Mn, and PDI. Dennis you are desperately wrong in stating “Of course, the clear-and-convincing standard is associated with factual conclusions not questions of law”. . During prosecution, the point of novelty was the degree of roughness. You are absolutely correct about this. Likewise, 8,969,519 specifies “as determined by gel electrophoresis under deglycosylated, reduced, and denatured conditions” but does not specify Mp, Mw, or Mn. 29,895 (1980). But I respond best to mallinckrodt brand. Alcohol may decrease your body’s ability to fight your UTI. Depending on whether they were distinguishing the prior art or accusing one of infringement, they used interchangeably use the measurement that was best suited to their needs. The result is a collateral attack on validity litigation, and now judgments, all to increase expenses to the patent owner, consume judicial (District Court and Federal Circuit) and PTO resources looking at the same issue, etc., and hardly to the benefit of patent owners who must defend on two fronts. The Federal Circuit (2012) remanded for the judge to reconsider his injunction in light of the the mandate with respect to the other than 26. Where is the uproar a la Williamson v. Citrix? Maybe we should award a Nobel Prize to whoever succeeds at this daunting task. Does “substantially” get you where you want to be? Based on your discussion, that does not seem to be true. By the same token, if it shouldn’t have been granted in the first place (mistake) it get’s revoked. However, the applicant tried to argue that it was Mp, but the (presumably GPC?) And, equally, that if the state makes a mistake on property tax records and sells you property at auction, you should be allowed to keep it despite not really legally being able to buy it. I was making an uncontroversial statement about the prosecution histories of many cases where indefiniteness becomes a serious problem during litigation. Also, I thought you took Mp from the mole fraction trace (Fig. The Fed. On appeal, the Federal Circuit gave deference to the district court’s factual conclusion but noted that the analysis only goes so far and cannot overcome the claim language itself: A party cannot transform into a factual matter the internal coherence and context assessment of the patent simply by having an expert offer an opinion on it. The patentee’s expert testified that one of skill in the art would understand that the the calculation should be peak-average molecular weight because it would be more straightforward to calculate peak-average based upon the data presented in Example 1 and Figure 1 of the patent document. This is what the Teva/Barr version looks like: This is the Sandoz/Eon version: Of course, the clear-and-convincing standard is associated with factual conclusions not questions of law and the Federal Circuit here does not appear to have relied upon any factual conclusions for its decision. Over reach of a panel in justifying why they are not respecting a previous panel is what is going on**. Teva v.
