In particular in the area of pharmaceutics the way from invention to commercialization is often long and extremely costly. In order to protect the results of research and development sufficiently and to offer an incentive for investments, an effective legal protection is indispensable. Moreover, medical methods, such as diagnostic methods, therapeutic methods and surgical methods as well as the products and devices used to this end constitute a special category in the German and European patent system. In these cases both an application-dependent substance protection for medical indications and an extension of the period of protection by means of a supplementary protection certificate are possible.
