A gap in an otherwise anticipating reference may be closed by reference to extrinsic evidence. The evidence must make clear though that the missing descriptive matter is necessarily present in the other reference. Schering Corp. v. Geneva Pharms., 339 F.3d 1373, 1377 (Fed. Cir. 2003). ...

Analysis

We find that Appellant has the better argument. Taylor broadly mentions the use of a dry powder inhaler (Taylor p. 16,11. 26—35), Taylor is silent as to the structure of the inhaler. Thus, Taylor does not anticipate the pending claims.

The Examiner points to Islam as evidencing the structure of the standard dry powder inhalers referenced in Taylor. Ans. 6. While this may be true, Islam does not teach that all “standard dry powder inhalers” taught in Taylor to be devices for use with the disclosed xinafoate salt necessarily have a chamber that houses an active as an excipient free, dry powder, and an advancement mechanism capable of distributing the active ingredient to the chamber as required by the claim. Thus, the Examiner has failed to show that the claimed structure is “necessarily present.” Id.
