Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 189 / Monday, October 4, 2021 / Notices approval phase of the regulatory review period is reasonably expected to extend beyond the expiration date of the patent. On September 23, 2021, Medac Gesellschaft fur Klinische Spezialpraparate mbH, the owner of record of the ‘162 patent, timely filed an application under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) for a first interim extension of the term of the ‘162 patent. The ‘162 patent claims a method of using the human drug product known by the tradename GRAFAPEXTM (dihydroxybusulfan). The application for interim patent term extension indicates that a regulatory review period (RRP) as described in 35 U.S.C. 156(g)(1)(B)(ii) began for GRAFAPEXTM (dihydroxybusulfan) and is ongoing before the Food and Drug Administration for permission to market and use the product commercially. Review of the interim patent term extension application indicates that, except for permission to market or use the product commercially, the ‘162 patent would be eligible for an extension of the patent term under 35 U.S.C. 156. Because it is apparent that the RRP will continue beyond the original expiration date of the ‘162 patent, i.e., October 12, 2021, interim extension of the patent term under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) is appropriate. A first interim extension under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) of the term of U.S. Patent No. 7,199,162 is granted for a period of one year from the original expiration date of the ‘162 patent.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Message From David Uejio, Acting Director Credit cards are one of the most commonly-held and widely-used financial products in America—over 175 million Americans hold at least one credit card. During the COVID–19 pandemic, credit cards played a vital role as both a source of credit in emergencies and a payment method as more transactions occurred online. As the fifth biennial report to Congress on the credit card market, this report details how swift actions by both the public and private sectors likely impacted how many consumers used their credit cards and managed their debts during the pandemic. To address hardships caused by COVID–19, the Federal government provided consumers direct relief by issuing a series of economic impact payments, providing enhanced unemployment benefits, suspending student loan payments and interest accrual for federally held loans, offering mortgage forbearance, and enacting a moratorium on evictions. At the same time, credit card issuers provided voluntary relief to consumers by offering payment deferral and fee waivers. Supported by these efforts, this report finds that the decline in credit card debt E:\FR\FM\04OCN1.SGM 04OCN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 35 U.S.C. 156 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. 35 U.S.C. 
156(d)(5) generally provides that the term of such a patent may be 
extended for no more than five interim periods of up to one year each, 
if the approval phase of the regulatory review period is reasonably 
expected to extend beyond the expiration date of the patent.
    On August 25, 2021, TVAX Biomedical I, LLC, the owner of record of 
the `699 patent, timely filed an application under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) 
for a third interim extension of the term of the `699 patent. The `699 
patent claims a method of using a veterinary biological product in the 
cancer immunotherapy treatment known by the tradename ECI[supreg] 
(ELIAS Cancer Immunotherapy). The application for interim patent term 
extension indicates that an application for a license for the 
veterinary biological product was submitted under the Virus-Serum-Toxin 
Act and is currently undergoing regulatory review by the United States 
Department of Agriculture, Center for Veterinary Biologics.
    Review of the interim patent term extension application indicates 
that, except for permission to market or use the product commercially, 
the `699 patent would be eligible for an extension of the patent term 
under 35 U.S.C. 156. Because it appears the approval phase of the 
regulatory review period will continue beyond the extended expiration 
date of the `699 patent, i.e., October 5, 2021, further interim 
extension of the patent term under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) is appropriate.
    A third interim extension under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) of the term of 
U.S. Patent No. 6,406,699 is granted for a period of one year from the 
extended expiration date of the `699 patent.
