As part of the IEDB curation effort, the Derwent World Patent Index has been searched for potentially relevant patent items. These are presented in a table on the Patent List web page that lists the publication number, patent title, inventors, assignee name, patent abstract, date filed, and date published. The enhanced abstracts of all of the 774 listed patent items have been reviewed, but the actual patents have not been read or curated. This information is presented for those users who wish to explore these patent items further. Given current priorities, this list has not been updated since 2007.
The list mostly includes patents related to Category A-C priority pathogens, emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases, Malaria, Hepatitis B, Clostridium tetani, Leishmania, and Candida albicans, as well as other diseases. Users can search the table by using the "find" feature of their browser.
