Konstantin Linnik, a member of the firm's Intellectual Property practice group, will be a featured speaker at The Knowledge Group’s web cast "Legal Series: Bio & Pharma Law in 2012." This live web cast will explore the latest and greatest changes and updates in Biotech and Pharma Law. Konstantin will present on Mayo Collaborative Services v. Prometheus Laboratories. The decision is expected to have long-term ramifications in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries,particularly, for the bourgeoning fields of diagnostics (Dx) and personalized medicines (PM). The Court unanimously held that Prometheus' claims involving the correlation between blood levels and optimal dosages were unpatentable as a “law of nature.” The webinar will cover: 

  • The facts of the Mayo and Myriad cases and the Court’s rationale in Mayo 
  • How broad is the reach of this decision and what it means for holders of intellectual property on Dx and PM 
  • How the Federal Circuit is expected to rule in Mayo and Myriad 
  • Review of typical questionable patent claims and analysis of issues 
  • New claiming strategies 
  • Remediation strategies for IP holders 
  • Assessment of Freedom-To-Operate positions in light of the decisions
