judgment on gene patents is fair to patients Last weekthe US Supreme Court ruled that naturally occurring genes cannot be patentedreversing a trend that has allowed over 20 per cent of the human genome to be patented by biotech companies The case was brought by the American Association for Molecular Pathology and other interested parties against Myriad Geneticsa company that owns patents on two human genesBRCA1 and BRCA2 Mutations in these genes can cause an increased risk for a woman to develop breast or ovarian cancer Over the last two decadesadvances in genetics have made it possible to pinpoint the stretches of DNA in a human cell that are responsible for proclivity to certain diseases Detecting mutations in these DNA segmentswhich signify higher risk of a particular diseaseallows for preventive therapies to be offered to the patient Recentlythe Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie underwent a preventive mastectomyor removal of breast tissuein order to prevent the future occurrence of breast cancer She tested positive for mutations in the BRCA1 genewhich increased her risk for breast cancer from about 12 per cent to about 87 per cent It is this same BRCA1 gene that was under the scanner of the US Supreme Court in the recent case as well Myriad Geneticsa molecular diagnostics company based in Utahpatented the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes in 1995 According to the laws of intellectual property protection in the USthis granted Myriad monopoly rights to develop and sell diagnostic tests that determine the presence of a mutation in BRCA1 or BRCA2 No other company could develop such diagnostic tests The price of the Myriad diagnostic test for BRCA1 and BRCA2 ranges between $3000-$4000 per testwhich puts it beyond the reach of most patients even in the USlet alone the rest of the world In the case before the US Supreme Courtthe complainants argued that genes should not be patented by companiesas they are naturally occurring substances in the human body The court concurred with this viewpointagainst the claim of Myriad Genetics that isolating these genes for use in laboratory conditions made them a patentable product The court did concede to part of Myriads claim by allowing certain types of DNA to be patented: synthetic geneswhich are segments of DNA invented by scientists in the laband cDNAan artificially created form of DNA used in genetic engineering The court further stated that invented methods of isolating DNA were patentable as well To put it another waytea leaves are natural products and hence cannot be patentedbut the method of converting them into tea bags is an inventionand can be patented The implications of this ruling are critically important for biotech companiesmedical researchdoctors and patients Several more companies will now enter the field of diagnostic testing for breast and ovarian cancerwhich will bring down the cost of the test and increase access for patients This is great news for Indian patientsas reported rates of breast cancer have doubled in India in the last decade Furtherthe high profile nature of this case has brought increased attention to the issue of over-patenting by for-profit companies Zealous patenting and patent protection via litigation has allowed inflated pricing and has blocked innovation by other companiesmuch to the detriment of patients in need Recentlythe Indian government and judiciary have taken up several major cases around patent protection of life-saving cancer drugs Most recentlyNovartiss drugGlivecwas denied patent protection by the Indian Supreme Court as it was found to be materially similar to an earlier version of the drugwhose patent protection had expired This move was hailed by patient advocates as it allows cheapergeneric versions of the drug to be sold in India It also enables lifesaving inventions to come into the public domain for the benefit of patientswithout being held hostage to over-patenting and litigation by companies The US is often seen as being held captive to the interests of patent owners with vast resourcesleading to patent proliferation and decreased competitionwhich in turn drives costs skyward Emerging economies like India and Brazil have challenged the patent proliferation that exists in advanced economies in the interest of having affordable healthcare products for their citizens A reassessment of patent monopoliesespecially in the case of lifesaving productsis essential if access is to be broadened beyond wealthy patients The Myriad Genetics case in the US Supreme Court is a welcome shift in the direction of honouring only real inventions with patent protectionand allowing other products to remain in the public domain The writer is a medical technology professional
