                    This is a decision on appeal from the final rejection of claims 18-27.         
              We have jurisdiction under 35 U.S.C.  6(b).  We affirm.                             

                                     STATEMENT OF CASE                                             
                    The claimed invention relates to methods of treating respiratory               
              disorders, such as asthma.  “Asthma is a chronic condition in which                  
              allergens or other triggers cause changes in a subject’s airways, resulting in       
              coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath (dyspnea)” (Spec.  2).
