Un traité pour réorienter l’industrie pharmaceutique
Vers une recherche sans brevets


Face à la cupidité des laboratoires pharmaceutiques, un projet de traité international cherche à découpler le coût de la recherche et le prix des médicaments, afin de faciliter la découverte de remèdes efficaces et accessibles aux populations qui en ont le plus besoin.Même lorsqu’elles ne sont pas solvables. Certains mécanismes permettent d’ores et déjà d’orienter la recherche vers les maladies endémiques au Sud.

South Centre hails Indian drug patent decision

From SOUTHNEWS, by Martin Khor:

“The ruling by the Supreme Court of India dismissing the petition from Novartis AG is a historic decision with positive global implications … The Novartis AG application had claimed a patent for a new salt form (imatinib mesylate), a medicine for the treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia. Novartis sells this medicine in several countries under the brand name Glivec (Gleevec). The Indian patent office had rejected the patent application on the ground that the claimed new form was anticipated in a US patent of 1996 for the compound imatinib and that the new form did not enhance the therapeutic efficacy of the drug. The decision was upheld by the Indian Patents Appellate Board (IPAB).

The decision by the Supreme Court of India has significant positive global implications. It has effectively protected the leading role of India in supplying affordable medicines to other developing countries. The reaffirmation of the primacy of health and access to medicines as a right of citizens is particularly important for the international community when these rights are under significant threat under bilateral trade and investment agreements.”

Indian court rejects Novartis patent

German Velasquez, a special adviser for health and development at South Centre, a think tank based in Geneva, Switzerland, says he hopes that “many developing countries will follow India’s example to protect the rights of their populations to have access to essential medicines”. A 2011 study by South Centre found evidence of “a significant proliferation of patents on developments of incremental nature” in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, India and South Africa.
