Availability for Non-Exclusive, Exclusive, or Partially Exclusive Licensing of U.S. Provisional Patent Applications Concerning Inhibitors of Type F Botulinum Neurotoxin Proteinase Activity, 40689 [05-13856]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 134 / Thursday, July 14, 2005 / Notices under section 772(d)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). See NSK Ltd. v. United States, 217 F. Supp 2d. 1291 (CIT 2002). NSK appealed the CIT’s judgment to the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC). The CAFC vacated and remanded the Department’s decision to classify NSK’s repacking expenses as selling expenses and not movement expenses under section 772(d)(1)(B) of the Act. On February 18, 2005, pursuant to the CAFC’s decision, the CIT remanded this case to the Department to revisit its classification of U.S. repacking expenses as selling expenses and provide an explanation for the inconsistent treatment of U.S. repacking expense, U.S. warehousing expense, and U.S. expense for shipping from warehouse to customer. See NSK Ltd. v. United States, Consol. Court No. 98–07– 02527, slip op. 05–26 (CIT 2005). In accordance with the CIT’s remand order in NSK Ltd., slip op. 05–26, the Department filed its remand results on May 18, 2005. On June 27, 2005, the CIT affirmed the Department’s final results of remand redetermination in their entirety. See NSK Ltd., slip op. 05–77. The changes to our calculations with respect to NSK resulted in a change in the weighted–average margin for ball bearings (BBs) from 2.35 percent to 2.34 percent and a change in the weighted– average margin for cylindrical roller bearings (CRBs) from 2.21 percent to 2.19 percent for the period of review. Accordingly, absent an appeal, or, if appealed, upon a ‘‘conclusive’’ decision by the CAFC which is consistent with the CIT’s decision, we will amend our final results of these reviews to reflect the recalculation of margins for NSK. Suspension of Liquidation The CAFC held that the Department must publish notice of a decision of the CIT or the CAFC which is not in harmony with the Department’s determination. See The Timken Company v. United States, 893 F.2d 337, 341 (CAFC 1990). Publication of this notice fulfills that obligation. The CAFC also held that, in such a case, the Department must suspend liquidation until there is a ‘‘conclusive’’ decision in the action. Id. Therefore, the Department must suspend liquidation pending the expiration of the period to appeal the CIT’s June 27, 2005, decision affirming the Department’s remand results or pending a final decision of the CAFC if that decision is appealed. Because entries of the BBs and CRBs from Japan produced by, exported to, or imported into the United States by NSK are currently being suspended pursuant to the court’s injunction order in effect, VerDate jul<14>2003 18:32 Jul 13, 2005 Jkt 205001 the Department does not need to order U.S. Customs and Border Protection to suspend liquidation of affected entries. The Department will not order the lifting of the suspension of liquidation on entries of the BBs and CRBs made during the review period before a court decision in this lawsuit becomes final and conclusive. We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with section 516A(c)(1) of the Act. Dated: July 8, 2005. Susan Kuhbach, Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.

Availability for Non-Exclusive, Exclusive, or Partially Exclusive 
Licensing of U.S. Provisional Patent Applications Concerning Inhibitors 
of Type F Botulinum Neurotoxin Proteinase Activity

AGENCY: Department of the Army, DoD.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In accordance with 37 CFR 404.6 and 404.7, announcement is 
made of the availability for licensing of the invention set forth in 
U.S. Provisional Patent Application Serial No. 60/656,551 entitled 
``Inhibitors of Type F Botulinum Neurotoxin Proteinase Activity,'' 
filed February 17, 2005; as well as the invention set forth in related 
U.S. Provisional Patent application Serial No. 60/660,024 entitled 
``Inhibitors of Type F Botulinum Neurotoxin Proteinase Activity,'' 
filed February 23, 2005. The United States Government, as represented 
by the Secretary of the Army, has rights in this invention.

ADDRESSES: Commander, U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command, 
ATTN: Command Judge Advocate, MCMR-ZA-J, 504 Scott Street, Fort 
Detrick, Frederick, MD 21702-5012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For patent issues, Ms. Elizabeth 
Arwine, Patent Attorney, (301) 619-7808. For licensing issues, Dr. Paul 
Mele, Office of Research & Technology Assessment, (301) 619-6664, both 
at telefax (301) 619-5034.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Botulinum neurotoxins (BoNTs A-G) are zinc 
metalloendoproteases that exhibit extraordinary specificities for 
proteins involved in neurotransmitter release. In view of the extreme 
toxicities of these molecules, their applications in human medicine, 
and potential for misuse, it is of considerable importance to elucidate 
the mechanisms underlying substrate recognition and to develop 
inhibitors, with the ultimate goal of obtaining anti-botulinum drugs.
