                                             DECISION ON APPEAL                                                        
                        This is an appeal under 35 U.S.C.  134 involving claims to a                                  
                 compound comprising a targeting moiety and a chelator.  The Examiner has                              
                 rejected the claims for obviousness and obviousness-type double patenting.                            
                 We have jurisdiction under 35 U.S.C.  6(b).  We affirm the obviousness                               
                 rejection and reverse the obviousness-type double patenting rejection.
