I found this interesting. How "accelerated" is the process?
"In addition, Savicell has been granted accelerated process for its patent application in the United States. The patent application process may be accelerated in the United States where a patent holder is over the age of 65, for the purpose of ensuring that the patent holder will enjoy the benefits of the patent if it is granted. In the case of Savicell’s technology, one of the patent applicants is over 65. There is no guarantee that the patent will be granted."
