1612 Ex Parte Stephenson 09489310 - (D) HANLON 103 THE PROCTER & GAMBLE COMPANY LIU, TRACY

On appeal, the Examiner also directs our attention to King Pharm., Inc. v. Eon Labs, Inc., 616 F.3d 1267 (Fed. Cir. 2010). The Examiner finds that "Applicant's step (a) in claim 23 of a physician or dental professional 'informing' a patient to orally administer a carbonated beverage for its inherent property of treating dental erosion is not patentable per the King Pharm. holding." Ans. 8. distinguishing language," in contrast to Jansen. Decision 6 (quoting Office Action dated June 6, 2005, at 2).

The facts in King, however, are different from the facts in this case. In King, the following claim limitation was at issue: "'informing the patient that administration of a therapeutically effective amount of metaxalone in a pharmaceutical composition with food results in an increase in the maximal plasma concentration ( Cmax) and extent of absorption ... compared to administration without food."' King, 616 F.3d at 1277 (emphasis added). The Court found that taking metaxalone with food was known in the art. King, 616 F.3d at 1275. Thus, the Court found that "[i]nforming a patient about the benefits of a drug in no way transforms the process of taking the drug with food. Irrespective of whether the patient is informed about the benefits, the actual method, taking metaxalone with food, is the same." King, 616 F.3d at 1279.

In this case, claim 23 recites a "directing" step, not an "informing" step as in King. The method recited in claim 23 comprises, inter alia, the step of "a physician or dental profession directing a human, in need thereof . .. , to orally administer an effective amount of [the claimed beverage composition] at least once daily for the purpose of treating dental erosion."

King Pharmaceuticals Inc. v. Eon Labs Inc., 616 F.3d 1267, 95 USPQ2d 1833 (Fed. Cir. 2010) 2111.05 2112.01
