Case Study 6 – Internal structure of tablets manufactured by alternative methods

The Challenge:

The case required evaluating the equivalence of pharmaceutical formulations and manufacturing methods involving alternative ways to enhance bioavailability.

The Acumen Approach:

Acumen assembled a team of four academic experts to:

  • Complete a comprehensive literature review and analysis of prior art in support of a doctrine of equivalents infringement case.
  • Develop sound technical arguments to defend patents against invalidity attacks (anticipation, indefiniteness, lack of written description).
  • Provide deposition testimony.
The Result:

Case was settled favorably post-deposition without going to trial.
