Lunch & Learn: Strategies for Protecting Biomarker Innovation in the US and Abroad

Lunch & Learn: Strategies for Protecting Biomarker Innovation in the US and Abroad

In collaboration with
Squire Sanders

Recent decisions by the US Supreme Court have found both isolated DNA and methods of assessing drug treatment efficacy by measuring metabolite levels are not eligible for patent protection. From these decisions, it’s become clear that the hard work of identifying a gene, or set of genes, which are correlated with a disease state is not enough to receive patent protection in the US. In contrast, isolated DNA is eligible for patent protection in many jurisdictions outside the US, such as Europe.

Moving forward, companies will likely consider innovation protection strategies which include some mix of patent and trade secret protection.

  • Insight regarding the impact of these decisions and strategies for protecting biomarker innovation in the US and abroad
  • Understanding which biomarker innovations are patent-eligible in the US and abroad
  • Information enabling companies to craft a global innovation and protection strategy
