J A Kemp Webinar: The Clinical Trials Dilemma

10 December 2020

This webinar is now available on-demand. Click here to access the recording.

There is a tricky decision to make for any patent attorney in relation to a proposed clinical trial: do you file a patent application before publication of the trial protocol and when results are not yet known, or do you wait until you have your results? In this webinar we will discuss possible strategies for filing patent applications in light of a planned clinical trial, in particular in light of the EPO’s approach to inventive step in this area. We will also take a look at the position on confidentiality of different aspects of clinical trials.  

Topics include:

  • Is a disclosure of a proposed clinical trial relevant to novelty and inventive step?
  • Filing strategies for applications relating to clinical trials.
  • Confidentiality of clinical trials.
