Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical product perspective.
In many cases we often find that although researchers consider their research as complete, we take the view that the research is incomplete to justify the patent claims filed. This article proposes to discuss the requirements of one aspect of patentability.
One of the three legal requirements to obtain a patent is that there must be “industrial applicability” in the research results (the other two being – “novelty” and “inventive step”). Now what is meant by the term “industrial applicability”? This article will attempt to explain this term in relation to patent applications in the field of biotechnology and pharmaceutical compounds.
