Eddy D. Ventose. Patenting medical and genetic diagnostic methods. Edward Elgar, 2013.

KF3827.M4V46 2013

 

In U.S. law, the issue of patent eligibility for medical and diagnostic methods goes back over 150 years, to the case of Morton v. New York Eye Infirmary in 1862. This book begins with a detailed analysis of Morton, and goes on to trace the subsequent legal developments all the way down to the Supreme Court’s decision in Mayo v. Prometheus in 2012. The law’s implications for current medical research and practice are also considered.
