Does Vietnam recognize second medical use claims?

No.

Claims in the “use” format are objected to on the ground that the subject-matter “use” in the claims is to be considered as neither a “product” nor a “process” and therefore, cannot be regarded as a statutory invention. In the past, such claim was often converted into a substance claim. At present, such converted claim is not accepted.
