The Claimed Intermediate provides a comprehensive
Pharmaceutical Process Patent Database and comprises a Forward Patent Watching Service and a
Backward Specific Drug Process Service in the same Structure Searchable Database.

The Forward Patent Watching Service comprises newly Published Process Patents for Marketed Pharmaceutical Drugs published as CA, DE, EP, FR, GB, US and WO patent specifications, and others as found. Some 2,500 patent specifications are inspected per month. Newly published Process Patents entries are added to the database within a month of publication.

The Backward Specific Drug Process Service comprises a comprehensive Process Patent History for specific drugs which will be added on an ongoing basis, eg Atorvastatin.

Targeted patent data in a visual format

* save on patent searching/analysis
* reduces manpower cost
* only new applications

The Claimed Intermediate is a Patent Watching Service and a Process Patent Database specifically concerned with identifying Pharmaceutical Process Patents for Named Marketed Drugs and particularly any Claimed Intermediates contained within the identified patent specifications. Such Marketed Drugs may be subject to product patent term protection or already generic – since all marketed drugs will eventually be generic!

Further information

A Basic Patent Status is included in each record to briefly indicate the progress of the Patent Application. Many Process Patents do not proceed to Grant.
Due to the number of languages encountered, some countries will not be covered – however these will be included when an in-house readable language patent family equivalent emerges (eg a published EP patent specification equivalent to a CN, JP, KR etc patent specification).

Due to the prevalence of equivalent patent specifications in patent families and in an attempt to exclude repetitions, the Patent Watching Service will only include NEW patent specifications, i.e. those without previously published family equivalents. Equivalent patent family specifications may be obtained from free or commercial patent databases.

As a Marketed Pharmaceutical Drug approaches its Product Patent term expiry (including SPCs &c), numerous Process patents are filed in efforts to enhance the profitability of commercial synthesis, especially for when the Marketed Drug goes Generic. However, the FDA, for example, does not list Process Patents and these are often lost within a plethora of other pharmaceutical patents (new drugs, compositions &c) in high cost patent databases.

The Claimed Intermediate is available by annual subscription. For details of rates and/or a free trial access to the database, please contact us.
