PATENTING OF MEDICINAL PREPARATIONS AND COMPOSITIONS:
With the help of a patent, it is possible to protect drugs and formulations used for treatment, diagnosis, prevention, or medical manipulation. In this case, the object will be the substance.
To obtain a patent, it is necessary to indicate the qualitative and quantitative characteristics of all components of the drug. Therefore, even if the substances included in the composition are already known or were previously patented, your composition and the quantitative ratio of substances in it will be protected by a patent!
PATENTING OF TREATMENT METHODS:
Methods of medical manipulations in Russian legislation are equated to inventions, and you can patent your method of treatment, prevention, diagnosis and research. In this case, the object is the method.
There are a number of restrictions on the patenting of medical techniques.
- Methods that are contrary to moral norms related to cloning and modification of the human genome;
- Methods based on the application of phenomena unrecognized by science.
we we take over preparation of documentation, maintenance of registration dossier and communication with experts from government agencies.
APPLICATION OF SUBSTANCES FOR A NEW PURPOSE:
Such cases in the field of medicine and pharmacology are common. For example, Coca-Cola was created in the late 19th century as a cough medicine, and recently the antimalarial drug has been proven to be effective for treating Covid-19. If in your practice you have also discovered a new area of application of known and already patented drugs, you can protect it with a patent.
PATENTING OF MEDICAL DEVICES:
If you have designed or developed a structural design of a medical device, instrument, device, patent it as an invention or utility model. In this case, the object is the device.
It will have:
- their properties;
- a set of structural elements;
- the relationship of these elements;
- a set of actions that are performed by these elements.
PATENTING DESIGN SOLUTIONS IN THE FIELD OF MEDICINE:
The appearance of medical devices and drugs, packaging design, corporate identity, colors and arrangement of elements - all this determines the recognition of products on the market and in the professional community. If your design gets copied, it will have an impact on both sales and reputation. Protect yourself!
The design solution and aesthetic features of products and packaging in the field of medicine are patented as an industrial design.
REQUIREMENTS FOR PATENTED OBJECTS IN THE FIELD OF MEDICINE:
It is possible to protect medical developments and devices with a patent if they meet the criteria of patentability.
For the industrial model, these are:
- novelty, that is, a clear difference between this solution and all previously published ones;
- industrial applicability, that is, the possibility of implementing the development.
For inventions, including methods, substances, devices:
- industrial applicability;
- technical result.
For design solutions:
- originality - the creative nature of the design and appearance.
Timely and complete patenting is the backbone of the pharmaceutical business
PATENTING OF SUBSTANCES:
Research and development of active ingredients account for the lion's share of the costs of pharmaceutical companies. If an unscrupulous competitor takes advantage of the fruits of other people's research, he will be able to release a much cheaper generic to the market. Patenting is the only effective way to protect your designs and commercial interests.
The object of patenting in this case is the substance that is part of the drug.
PATENTING OF THE CHEMICAL FORMULA:
The patenting of the chemical formula completely protects the drug from copying. In this case, it is possible to patent the formula, even if all the substances included in the composition are already known. IPS experts will give you comprehensive advice on the possibilities of patent protection of chemical formulas in your case.
In this case, the combination and quantitative ratio of substances in the composition of the preparation are patented.
PATENTING A METHOD FOR PRODUCING THE SUBSTANCE:
The method of obtaining is also subject to patent law and can be assigned to your company.
The criteria for patentability, if the object is a method, are novelty, industrial applicability and technical result.
TRADEMARK PATENTING IN THE FIELD OF PHARMACOLOGY:
A trademark is a business asset and needs to be protected from complete copying or borrowing of elements.
The use of your trademark by other companies for other drugs provokes not only financial losses, but also huge reputational risks. We will provide you with reliable protection!
