[Ip-health] Engelberg Center Conference: National Policies on Secondary Pharmaceutical Patents

Hassett, Annemarie Annemarie.hassett at nyu.edu
Tue Jan 12 12:50:47 PST 2016

Please join us for a conference on January 23, 2016, at NYU School of Law (Lipton Hall, 9:00 AM) co-hosted by the Engelberg Center on Innovation Law & Policy (NYU School of Law) and The London School of Economics and Political Science, entitled National Policies on Secondary Pharmaceutical Patents: Their Effectiveness and Implications for Innovation and Access to Medicines.  No charge to attend.

Over the past two decades the number of secondary pharmaceutical patents has grown in developed countries, together with concern about the diffusion of this practice to developing countries.  Some developing countries have enacted policies restricting their grant on the view that such patents are not sufficiently innovative inventive and can raise prices and create barriers to access to medicines. The conference will bring together academics and practitioners to examine (1) the restrictions that exist in developed and developing countries on obtaining and enforcing secondary patents, and their effectiveness; (2) whether and how secondary pharmaceutical patents affect prices and access to medicines, and their impact, if any, on innovation incentives
