Kibow Biotech Achieves Major Victory with India's IPAB Decision to Uphold 2009 Product Patent
Date:12/2/2013

NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa., Dec. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The landmark decision by India's top IP body, the Intellectual Property Appellate Board (IPAB), to uphold Kibow Biotech's key product patent No: 224100 granted in the year 2009 by the government of India is a major victory for a small biotech company based in Pennsylvania. 

This product patent entitled "Compositions for Augmenting Kidney Function" is a probiotic dietary supplement developed over a ten-year period with extensive R&D and clinical validation. The innovative product which sells as Renadyl™ (previously sold as Kibow® Biotics in USA and Canada only) received wide acclaim around the world including from top medical professionals, scientists and the company's distinguished Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) members (www.kibowbiotech.com).   

The revocation petition against two of Kibow's patents was filed by LaRenon Health Care, an Indian pharmaceutical firm. Kibow had sued LaRenon for infringement before the Madras High Court, alleging infringement of its patents. While this suit was dismissed for procedural irregularities, La Renon filed revocations before the IPAB challenging both the product patent (Patent No: 224100) and the Process Patent (No.205478) covering a novel method of augmenting kidney function.

While the IPAB, via an order of the Vice Chairman Hon'ble S. Usha and Technical Member (Patents) Hon'ble D.P.S Parmar, invalidated the weaker process patent, it upheld the product patent. When compared to a process patent, a product patent is infinitely more valuable as it permits the patentee to prevent third parties such as LaRenon from making a copy of the product, irrespective of the process that they use to arrive at the product.

In particular, the judges agree
