Drug repurposing is traditionally defined as the use of a known drug for an indication other than the one for which approval was initially sought. Serendipitous discovery has historically been a key part of drug repurposing. For example, when the compound sildenafil was first synthesized in the 1980s, Pfizer was looking for a treatment for angina. The drug lacked the desired antihypertensive effects. However, the researchers later learned that sildenafil could be used to treat other conditions. Thus, Viagra® was born.

These webinars will discuss an emerging intellectual property aspect of drug repurposing, not the mechanism by which novel methods of treatment or even formulations are patented, but how modifying properties such as drug delivery can create brand new classes of intellectual property. We will discuss how such intellectual property can add tremendous value to a pharmaceutical asset and how resulting patents are prosecuted and litigated.
