Nanotechnology is developing rapidly in the world. Nanomedicine as one of the branches of nanotechnology
is very important. Getting patents in the field of nanomedicine is significant. The filing of patents plays a very
important role in nanomedicine commercialization. In this article, the procedures for getting a patent in Iran and the United States are described. The Turkish patent system has also been described. By comparing the procedures for getting a patent and interviews with experts, gaps in an Iranian patent are discussed. Finally, some reformation options for improving the procedures for getting an Iranian patent in nanomedicine, have been proposed.
