I’m trying to lay my hands on the patent office pre grant decision in USV vs Eli Lilly, where USV successfully challenged Eli Lilly’s application for Forteo, an osteoporosis drug. I had blogged on it earlier here.
If any of you have a copy of the decision or know someone at USV Ltd that can give us a copy of the decision, please let me know at
On a related note, it bears mention that Sandeep Rathod (a leading patent attorney working with Matrix Labs) kickstarted a blog, along with Feroz Ali (who recently authored a brilliant book on pharma patents) to fill this gap. The blog reviews important patent opposition decisions from India. For those interested, please visit them here.
