We are not persuaded. Our reviewing court has explained that, to demonstrate that a product, such as a chemical compound, has unexpected properties sufficient to overcome a prima facie showing of obviousness, a patent applicant need not "produce superior results in every environment in which the compound may be used. To be patentable, a compound need not excel over prior art compounds in all common properties." In re Chupp, 816 F.2d 643, 646 (Fed. Cir. 1987). Instead, "[e]vidence that a compound is unexpectedly superior in one of a spectrum of common properties, as here, can be enough to rebut a primafacie case of obviousness." Id.

Thus, the Examiner's position, that the undisputedly significant improvement shown by Appellants is insufficient to show nonobviousness because the improvement was not shown throughout the entire post administration period, conflicts with the holding in Chupp, 816 F .2d at 646, 647 (rejection of claims to herbicidal compound reversed over showing of unexpected properties based on single method of use).

Chupp, In re, 816 F.2d 643, 2 USPQ2d 1437 (Fed. Cir. 1987) 716.01(d) 716.02(a) 2145

“Ordinarily, the PTO accepts statements in declarations at face value. However, like other judicial and quasi-judicial tribunals, the PTO need not accept at face value a statement in a declaration when there is objective evidence in the record for questioning the statement.”  Ex parte Daniels, 40 USPQ2d 1394, 1409 n.14 (Bd. Pat. App. Int. 1996), reversed on other grounds, see In re Daniels, 144 F.3d 1452 (Fed. Cir. 1998).  Although a declarant’s opinion on the ultimate legal issue is not evidence in the case, “some weight ought to be given to a persuasively supported statement of one skilled in the art on what was not obvious to him.”  In re Lindell, 385 F.2d 453, 456 (CCPA 1967).  The submission of objective evidence of patentability does not mandate a conclusion of patentability in and of itself. In re Chupp, 816 F.2d 643 (Fed. Cir. 1987).  Here, there is evidence in the record contrary to the McMillen Declaration.
