On October 25, 2012, the American Medical Students Association (AMSA),
Knowledge Ecology International (KEI), U.S. Public Interest Research
Group (PIRG) and the Universities Allied for Essential Medicines
(UAEM) filed a petition (attached here) requesting that the National
Institutes of Health (NIH) grant Bayh-Dole Act march-in rights for the
patents held by Abbott Laboratories relevant to the manufacture and
sale of ritonavir, a federally funded invention that is much more
expensive in the United States than in Canada, Europe or other
high-income countries.

This is a link to the KEI blog about the filing.
