Moderna Inc. has argued that the Arbutus patent known as ‘069 patent’ should be rejected because it described obvious concepts. But the administrative court run by the US patent and trademark office refused to revoke the patent.

The 069 patent is related to lipid nanoparticle (LNP) that allows the human body to make its own therapeutics protein. Lipid nanoparticle technology is very important for Moderna Inc for the development of vaccines.

Moderna Inc considered Arbutus an obstacle in the vaccine development effort. The court order is disappointing but it doesn’t have an immediate financial impact on the company because of this decision.
