Extending Patents to Medical Devices - an article

There isn't so much out there when it comes to an overview on SPCs and medical devices. However, the February 2011 issue of Intellectual Property and Technology Law Journal does contain an article by Sinan Uktu (Covington & Burling LLP) on that topic entitled "Extending Patents to Medical Devices in Europe".

A copy of the article can be obtained here.
