Section 14(4) of the Patents Act explicitly provides for protection of a new use of a known substance or composition if it was not previously disclosed for use in surgery, therapy or diagnosis (ie, first medical use). Protection of substances or compositions claimed under this format is restricted to the substance or composition when presented or packaged for use.
