More on patentability of medicines from Brazil


Few days back we brought you the news that INPI was debating with other sectors (pharmaceutical, non-profit organisations, education, among others) the criteria of patentability in the field of medicines.

Today, the INPI web page published that the meeting was to provide technical guidance for examining patents in the pharmaceuticals segment. According to INPI, “guidelines for the technical examination of patent applications are dynamic and try to adapt to changing technology, based on the Law of Industrial Property, LPI 9.276/96.”

Among the issues discussed were: conditions for patentability; Markush formula; Patents selection; polymorphism; second medical use; compositions / formulations / combinations; and isomers.
