Prior-Art Searching in Pharmaceutical domains involve challenges, such as:

  1. Searching through the references disclosing the compound by its IUPAC Name, common names, salts of the compound of interest, compound’s exact structure, compound’s Markush Structure.
  2. The compound might be considered in its crystalline or enantiomeric forms.
  3. The role of inactive agents in the composition.
  4. Whether the formulation or the composition needs to be searched.
  5. Whether the route of administration/ or use is important for searching.
  6. A single Markush structure can evolve into millions of similar compounds;  and therefore, the above pointers make searching in these domains more complicated and needs a structured approach.
