|Novartis Plea rejected by Madras HC|
|It was a sweet moment of victory for CPAA, when the Madras high court rejected a plea made by pharma giant Novartis against Section 3d of the Indian Patent Act. In 2005, Cancer Patients Aid Association (CPAA) had kick-started the movement against the company's application to seek fresh patent protection for its life-saving drug called Glivec. On 7th August, at a press meet held to discuss the impact of the judgment, CPAA Chairman, Mr. Y K Sapru said, "We fought for the patients' rights and we are relieved that the court has ruled in our favour and recognised that patients need protection more than patents." The court ruled in favour of the patients, which meant that effective and affordable generic medicines would continue to be produced in India. >>more|
