In re Wallach

Case Number: CLB0087

Date: 08.11.2004

Citation: 71 U.S.P.Q.2d 1939 (Fed. Cir. 2004)

Claims directed to isolated DNA molecules encoding proteins that inhibit cytotoxic effects of tumor necrosis factor were properly rejected for failure to satisfy written description requirement of 35 U.S.C. § 112 because the specification provided only partial amino acid sequence and, therefore, it cannot be held that DNA molecules claimed in application have been described.
