Event Details

Challenge to Human Gene Patent at the Supreme Court 

AIPLA Advance Call-In Press Conference Scheduled for This Friday

 

A case challenging a patent on a human gene is now pending at the Supreme Court, and the Court will announce next Tuesday, February 21 if it will review the lower court decision that a human gene is eligible for patenting. The case was filed by scientists, doctors and cancer patients (represented by the American Civil Liberties Union). 

What will this mean to patients, medical research and innovation and the biotech industry?

Phone in to hear an objective analysis of the arguments being advanced at the Supreme Court, and observations on the importance of this case to the industry and to the development of medical innovations.  The phone-in press briefing will take place this Friday, February 17, 2012 at 11:00 am EST, conducted by the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA).

The case, The Association for Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics, Inc., No. 11-725, is important not only for the parties involved, but also for the entire biotech industry as it addresses fundamental issues of the patent system on which that industry and medical research depend.
