Snippet: Cipla Abandons its Patent Application

In an interesting development, Cipla has abandoned its patent application 733/MUMNP/2004 relating to “A combination of Azelastine and steroids” which had 50 claims.  The application was abandoned after a pre-grant opposition was filed against it. Here is the 8-page decision delivered on October 14, 2012 by the Mumbai Patent Office, of which 6 pages contain only the claims of the application.
