New roles of public administration with regards to pharmaceutical patents

Access to natural resources: what does the concept covers?

Latin America and the Caribbean are a privileged area of ​​the planet where a vast diversity of flora and fauna is concentrated. In turn, culturally, it has a plurality of ancestral populations, whose traditional knowledge informs about the benefits that certain plants and animals have on human health. Thus, this region of the world is attractive for the development of research in pharmaceutical matters and for other areas of science. Several countries have adopted regulations regarding the access and use of local natural resources and, as a result, a series of documentary and contractual relationships have been managed to formalize these processes. What experiences can we identify in Latin America regarding access to natural resources for research and development? How ...

Expert evidence in patent controversies

Patent disputes have a highly technical-scientific component; in a few countries, public officials or judges who know of these disputes have professional training in chemical, mechanical, electrical and other sciences, in addition to law. Hence, in order to apply the law to the specific case that is subject to its decision, officials and judges need to be provided with specialized knowledge, through a suitable test but in a form and language understandable to those who are not trained in the technique.

Use and abuse of patent flexibilities in the TRIPS agreement

Based on the recognition of asymmetries, multilateral instruments covering invention patents have provided scope for the implementation of their content. That margin is broad in the Paris Convention; in the TRIPS Agreement, the margin was reduced by defining “minimums” of guardianship. In this last agreement, the concept of “flexibilities” is incorporated, based on the different degree of development among the member countries, particularly in terms of public health considerations and access to medicines. In law, talking about “flexibilities” generates “uncertainty” since there are usually many aspects that are not specified, it opens the door to arbitrary interpretations and confronts the parties. “Compulsory Licenses”, “Exhaustion of the Law”, “Use by the State”, “Exceptions to comply with regulatory requirements (Bolar exception)”, are ...

Biologic and biosimilars

Biotechnology is the trend in the development of medicines. Biological products represent the spearhead of biomedical research and currently offer the most effective means of treating a wide variety of diseases and medical conditions that currently have no other way of being treated. Biological drugs are medicines made from living organisms, living cells, through complex manufacturing processes, to the extreme that is often said “in biological, the process is the product.” These molecules are more structurally complex and more sensitive to changes in their environment. The process for its manufacture requires a strict control and monitoring of the production conditions and even packaging. Given the characteristics of biologics, it is not possible to speak of “generics”, as is the case ...

Hot topics in pharmaceutical trademarks

It has been legislated in several countries, or there are projects to legislate, in the sense that the name of the active ingredient is the prominent element in the packaging, nullifying the functions of the “trademark”; it has also been ruled that doctors prescribe with that name and not with the trademark of the product. These and other rules imply limitation of the right of trademark owners, unfairly discriminate in favor of producers who only use the name in question, complicate the drug surveillance and traceability and even violate the freedom of a doctor to prescribe the product that considers best for the treatment of the patient. To discuss these growing problems, we will go through the system of “international ...
