ACTION: The United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued an order granting interim extension for a oneyear interim extension of the term of U.S. Patent No. 8,311,629. SUMMARY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Section 156 of Title 35, United States Code, generally provides that the term of a patent may be extended for a period of up to five years if the patent claims a product, or a method of making or using a product, that has been subject to certain defined regulatory review, and that the patent may be extended for interim periods of up to one year if the regulatory review is anticipated to extend beyond the expiration date of the patent. On October 26, 2018, Impulse Dynamic N.V., the patent owner of record, timely filed an application under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) for an interim extension of the term of U.S. Patent No. 8,311,629. The patent claims the medical device, the OPTIMIZER Smart Implantable Pulse Generator. The application for patent term extension indicates that a Premarket Approval Application (PMA) P180036 was submitted to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on September 5, 2018. Review of the patent term extension application indicates that, except for permission to market or use the product commercially, the subject patent would be eligible for an extension of the patent term under 35 U.S.C. 156, and that the patent should be extended for one year as required by 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5)(B). Because the regulatory review period will continue beyond the original expiration date of the patent, November 16, 2018, interim extension of the patent term under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) is appropriate. An interim extension under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) of the term of U.S. Patent No. 8,311,629 is granted for a period of one year from the original expiration date of the patent. amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:33 Nov 21, 2018 Jkt 247001 [FR Doc. 2018–25539 Filed 11–21–18; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–16–P DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Mary C.

ACTION: Notice of interim patent term extension.

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

SUMMARY: The United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued an 
order granting interim extension for a one-year interim extension of 
the term of U.S. Patent No. 8,311,629.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mary C. Till by telephone at (571) 
272-7755; by mail marked to her attention and addressed to the 
Commissioner for Patents, Mail Stop Hatch-Waxman PTE, P.O. Box 1450,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 156 of Title 35, United States Code, 
generally provides that the term of a patent may be extended for a 
period of up to five years if the patent claims a product, or a method 
of making or using a product, that has been subject to certain defined 
regulatory review, and that the patent may be extended for interim 
periods of up to one year if the regulatory review is anticipated to 
extend beyond the expiration date of the patent.
    On October 26, 2018, Impulse Dynamic N.V., the patent owner of 
record, timely filed an application under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) for an 
interim extension of the term of U.S. Patent No. 8,311,629. The patent 
claims the medical device, the OPTIMIZER Smart Implantable Pulse 
Generator. The application for patent term extension indicates that a 
Premarket Approval Application (PMA) P180036 was submitted to the Food 
and Drug Administration (FDA) on September 5, 2018.
    Review of the patent term extension application indicates that, 
except for permission to market or use the product commercially, the 
subject patent would be eligible for an extension of the patent term 
under 35 U.S.C. 156, and that the patent should be extended for one 
year as required by 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5)(B). Because the regulatory 
review period will continue beyond the original expiration date of the 
patent, November 16, 2018, interim extension of the patent term under 
35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) is appropriate.
    An interim extension under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) of the term of U.S. 
Patent No. 8,311,629 is granted for a period of one year from the 
original expiration date of the patent.
