In order to establish a prima facie case of obviousness, the Examiner must show that each and every limitation of the claim is described or suggested by the combination of prior art references or would have been obvious based on the knowledge of those of ordinary skill in the art.  In re Fine, 837 F.2d 1071, 1074 (Fed. Cir. 1988). Because the Examiner has not shown that Kroger, or any of the art of record, teaches or suggests the use of folic acid, we reverse the rejection of claims 34-36.

The Board finds no evidence that a terminal disclaimer has been filed in either application. More to the point, a statutory double patenting rejection under 35 U.S.C. § 101 cannot be cured by terminal disclaimer. See In re Vogel, 422 F.2d 438, 441 (CCPA 1970).
