Appellant contends that in this case the preamble should be treated like a claim limitation because the phrase “to a patient in need thereof” would otherwise not have proper antecedent basis in the body of the claim. See Appeal Br. 8 (citing Jansen v. Rexall Sundown, 342 F.3d 1329, 1333-34 (Fed. Cir. 2003); Rapoport v. Dement, 254 F.3d 1053, 1060-61 (Fed. Cir. 2001)). Our reviewing court in both Rapoport and Jansen considering similarly structured claims determined that these claims should be interpreted to require that the method be practiced with the “intent to achieve the objective stated in the preamble.” Jansen, 342 F.3d 1333. “The preamble is therefore not merely a statement of effect that may or may not be desired or appreciated. Rather, it is a statement of the intentional purpose for which the method must be performed.” Id.
