Kay...the '889 is the COMPOSITION patent? And '885 the METHOD patent? I ask because if that is the case and the FDA was holding off waiting for patents, the '885 is the one they would want the most. I hate to bring this up, but with just the '889 patent there is an outside chance that the FDA will kick the can down the road one more time. Which of course would result in one he-ll of a ride.
you seems to be knowledgeful in this area..could you please tell me how do you check these status..and i don't know what progress does amarin made from the last month on these patents for FDA to determine whether NCE is awarded or not? Do you expect NCE status will be known this month or will be there be any delay again? Thanks for the info..I have good amount of positions and believe in vascepa ..
tabloid, I usually go to the USPTO website and search there. Google: USPTO PAIR and select Public Pair then enter Application Number and look for the Transaction History tab to start. More detail can then be found in the Image File Wrapper. If NCE is going to be delayed again there might be an indication from AMRN next week but not guaranteed. FDA wont come straight out and tell AMRN of a delay but may imply it through requests for more info, etc. Im leaning towards a resolution this month but who knows?
Some one at US PTO is screwing it.(Internal communication/System failure). If it was TC or other reason--it will be shown in PAIR.
It looks likes Patent attorney for Amarin must have called or E mailed the Examiner--who keeps sending it back again and again.
889 examiner got the issue date in one week.
885 examiner seems NOT aggressive as 889 examiner.
