Pharmaceutical Chemistry Expert in Drug Manufacturing Processes

Case Description:

A pharmaceutical chemistry expert was needed for an intellectual property case involving the drug manufacturing processes of an injectable form of a veterinary medicine. At issue in the case was a pharmaceutical preparation approved by the FDA which constituted combining the original unaltered form of the drug with a chemical salt as opposed to purchasing a proprietary form and manufacturing an aqueous suspension. The plaintiff alleged that the pharmaceutical preparation utilizing the in situ chemical salt was proprietary and the defendant was infringing on its trade secrets. The defendant's position was that the pharmaceutical preparation would be obvious to anyone with knowledge of pharmaceutical chemistry and is therefore not proprietary.
