USPTO Launches Pilot Program for Cancer Immunotherapy Applications

by | Jul 28, 2016 | Patent | 0 comments

The USPTO recently introduced its initiative to “fast track” patent applications which cover immunotherapies for cancer. The program is designed to support the White House’s National Cancer Moonshot, which aims to eliminate cancer with a $1 Billion call to arms to find new therapies and techniques for prevention. Eligible applications will be prioritized for examination, and, once accepted into the program, applicants can expect to receive a final decision in one year or less.
