See Merck & Co., Inc. v. Biocraft Labs., Inc., 874 F.2d 804, 807 (Fed. Cir. 1989) (rejecting “obvious to try” argument where the prior art disclosed a “multitude of effective combinations” that did not “render any particular formulation less obvious” and where the claimed composition was “used for the identical purpose taught by the prior art” and affirming obviousness of composition selected from among more than 1200 possible compositions disclosed in patent). ...

Cf. In re Huai-Hung Kao, 639 F.3d 1057, 1070 (Fed. Cir. 2011) (“Maloney's express teachings render the claimed controlled release oxymorphone formulation obvious, and the claimed ‘food effect’ adds nothing of patentable consequence.”); see also Ex parte Obiaya, 227 USPQ 58, 60 (BPAI 1985).
