The case required the analysis of tablets coated with an enteric polymer, both with and without sub-coats. Infringement was based on whether the sub-coat effectively separated the drug substance from the enteric coating material.
The Acumen Approach:
The Acumen expert witness team came together to provide:
- Comprehensive literature review.
- Analysis of prior art regarding the role of coating materials and methods to examine the accused process from the perspective of the patents en suit.
- Sound technical arguments and court testimony to defend the client against untrue infringement allegations.
Case was settled in favor of the client.
