Jan. 19, 2021: I have added a list in numberical order of every expired Orange Book patent starting from the dawn of Hatch-Waxman through Dec. 31, 2020 to the Orange Book ArchiveTM. The Orange Book Archive, which already contains tables in order by by tradename and generic name, is included  at no additional cost for subscribers.

Each patent number is a link to the patent at the USPTO, and the list includes the patent's expiration date, title, the types of claims in the patent, and the names of the drugs for which the patent was listed. In addition, each drug name is a link to the full portfolio of expired patents and exclusivities for that drug.
