In allowing the claims of the ‘911 patent, the examiner wrote:
“Claims 1-11 are allowed. The closest prior art is Fassler et al. (J. Med. Chem. 1996, vol. 39, pages 3203-3216) disclose aza-peptide analogs as potent Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type-1 Protease Inhibitors with oral bioavailability.
The instant claims differ from the reference in having the substituted phenyl group at R4 position, whereas the reference teach [sic] unsubstituted phenyl group at the same position. This difference was neither taught or suggested by the prior art of record.”
