INTERNATIONAL SEARCH REPORT (ISR)

International application No. Applicant's or agent's file reference
PCT/IB2020/058167 P001738WO01SEC
International filing date (day/month/year) (Earliest) Priority Date (day/month/year)
02 September 2020 05 September 2019
Applicant
KCI LICENSING, INC.
FOR FURTHER ACTION: See Form PCT/ISA/220 as well as, where applicable, item 5 below.
This international search report has been prepared by this International Searching Authority and is transmitted to the applicant according to Article 18. A copy is being transmitted to the International Bureau.
It is also accompanied by a copy of each prior art document cited in this report.
1. Basis of the report
a. With regard to the language, the international search was carried out on the basis of:
the international application in the language in which it was filed.
a translation of the international application into                                          which is the language of a translation furnished for the purposes of international search (Rules 12.3(a) and 23.1(b)).
b.
This international search report has been established taking into account the rectification of an obvious mistake authorized by or notified to this Authority under Rule 91 (Rule 43.6bis(a)).
c.
With regard to any nucleotide and/or amino acid sequence disclosed in the international application, the international search was carried out on the basis of a sequence listing:
2. Certain claims were found unsearchable
This international search report has not been established in respect of certain claims under Article 17(2)(a) for the following reasons:
1.
Claims Nos.: 52-60
because they relate to subject matter not required to be searched by this Authority, namely:
Claims 52-60 have not been searched as their subject-matter pertains to a method for treatment of the human or animal body by therapy (claims 59-60) (Rule 39.1(iv) PCT) or to instructions for use which are equated to mere presentation of information (claims 52-58) (Rule 39.1(v) PCT).
2.
Claims Nos.: 61
because they relate to parts of the international application that do not comply with the prescribed requirements to such an extent that no meaningful international search can be carried out, specifically:
Claim 61 has not been searched as its subject-matter is too broad, without technical limitation, so that no meaningful search is possible.
The applicant's attention is drawn to the fact that claims relating to inventions in respect of which no international search report has been established need not be the subject of an international preliminary examination (Rule 66.1(e) PCT). The applicant is advised that the EPO policy when acting as an International Preliminary Examining Authority is normally not to carry out a preliminary examination on matter which has not been searched. This is the case irrespective of whether or not the claims are amended following receipt of the search report or during any Chapter II procedure. If the application proceeds into the regional phase before the EPO, the applicant is reminded that a search may be carried out during examination before the EPO (see EPO Guidelines C-IV, 7.2), should the problems which led to the Article 17(2) declaration be overcome.
3.
Claims Nos.:
because they are dependent claims and are not drafted in accordance with the second and third sentences of Rule 6.4(a).
3. Unity of invention is lacking
4. Title of the invention
The text is approved as submitted by the applicant.
The text has been established by this Authority to read as follows:
5. Abstract
The text is approved as submitted by the applicant.
The text has been established, according to Rule 38.2, by this Authority as it appears in Box No. IV. The applicant may, within one month from the date of mailing of this international search report, submit comments to this Authority.
6. Drawings
a.
The figure of the drawings to be published with the abstract is Figure No.     2    
as suggested by the applicant.
as selected by this Authority, because the applicant failed to suggest a figure.
as selected by this Authority, because this figure better characterizes the invention.
b.
none of the figures is to be published with the abstract.
