Vijay Kumar Makyam I am not sure about the details of this case; however seems this case on the point that DNA that had merely been isolated from the body was not patentable subject matter. I am not going into technicalities here but as Indian Patent Act has Section 3(d) for stopping ever greening of pharmaceutical patents; there should be some provision of law for controlling the gene patents and should not be completely eliminated.
