UK IPO Launches Consultation Investigating Impact of UK Patent Legislation on Conduct of Pharmaceutical Clinical and Field Trials

UK IPO Launches Consultation Investigating Impact of UK Patent Legislation on Conduct of Pharmaceutical Clinical and Field Trials

The UK Intellectual Property Office (UK IPO) launched a consultation this week to investigate the impact, if any, of UK patent legislation on the conduct of clinical and field trials involving pharmaceuticals in the UK.

This consultation is being run in response to some stakeholder concerns that the current UK regulatory framework can put them at risk of patent infringement when carrying out clinical and field trials involving pharmaceuticals, resulting in an unwillingness to conduct such trials in the UK.

The consultation document can be found at www.ipo.gov.uk/consult-2011-bolar.htm.

The UKIPO has indicated that it welcomes participation in this consultation which runs until 31 July 2011.
