          Appeal No. 1997-2700                                                        
          Application 08/307,249                                                      


          413, 425, 208 USPQ 871, 881 (CCPA 1981); In re Merck & Co.,                 
          Inc., 800 F.2d 1091, 1097, 231 USPQ 375, 380 (Fed. Cir. 1986).              
          In view of the above discussion, the Examiner’s obviousness                 
          rejection of dependent claims 7, 17, and 23 is sustained.                   
               In summary, we have sustained each of the Examiner’s                                                                     
          rejections of the claims on appeal.  Therefore, the decision                
          of the Examiner rejecting claims 1-24 is affirmed.                          





                                                                                     




               No time period for taking any subsequent action in                     
          connection with this appeal may be extended under 37 CFR                    
           1.136(a).                                                                 
                                      AFFIRMED
