2875 Ex Parte Hong et al 11511423 - (D) NAGUMO 103 MORGAN LEWIS & BOCKIUS LLP (WA) DZIERZYNSKI, EVAN P

AFFIRMED

1711 Ex Parte Wochner et al 12674299 - (D) ROESEL 103 BROOKS KUSHMAN P.C. DUNLAP, CAITLIN NOELLE DENNI

The fact that Wochner also discloses many other possible combinations of acids does not support nonobviousness. Merck & Co., Inc. v. Biocraft Labs., Inc., 874 F.2d 804, 807 (Fed. Cir. 1989) (that reference “discloses a multitude of effective combinations does not render any particular formulation less obvious,” especially where “the claimed composition is used for the identical purpose taught by the prior art”); In re Susi, 440 F.2d 442, 445 (CCPA 1971) (obviousness rejection affirmed where the disclosure of the prior art was “huge, but it undeniably include[d] at least some of the compounds recited in appellant’s generic claims and [was] of a class of chemicals to be used for the same purpose as appellant’s additives”).

Merck & Co. v. Biocraft Laboratories, 874 F.2d 804, 10 USPQ2d 1843 (Fed. Cir. 1989) 716.02(a) 2123 2144.05 2144.08
