          Application 08/080,449                                                       
                    REQUEST FOR REHEARING UNDER 37 CFR  1.197(b)                      
               On January 24, 2000, appellants filed “Response To                      
          Decision On Appeal Under 35 U.S.C.  134", in effect                         
          requesting rehearing of our Decision on Appeal Under 35 U.S.C.               
           134, mailed November 17, 1999 (Paper No. 51) under 37 CFR                 
          1.197(b).  Other than commentary with regard to applicable                   
          fees, the paper reads                                                        
          (page 1 of 2 pages):                                                         
                    In response to the Decision mailed November 17,                    
               1999, the Applicants request that the application be                    
               reheard under 1.197(b) by the Board of Patent Appeals                  
               and Interferences upon the same record. (See option                     
               no. 2 at page 15 of the Decision).                                      
               Pertinent to our ruling on appellants’ request for                      
          rehearing under 37 CFR  1.197(b), the regulation requires:                  
               The request for rehearing must state with particularity                 
               the points believed to have been misapprehended or                      
               overlooked in rendering the decision and also state                     
               all other grounds upon which rehearing is sought.                       
          Because appellants have provided no justification whatsoever                 
          for rehearing this appeal, it is hereby ORDERED that:                        
               Appellants’ request for rehearing of Appeal No. 1996-0532               
          under 37 CFR  1.197(b) is denied.                                           

                                          - 2 -
