Indeed, India is one of the only countries to use the full transition period and delay pharmaceutical patenting until In , at the point of introducing the final amendments to the Patents Act to allow for pharmaceutical patents, the Indian government included Section 3 d , a provision that establishes a high barrier for secondary patents. Specifically, 3 d stipulates that many secondary patents are not considered as inventions, and thus not eligible for patents, unless the applicants demonstrate that these have greater efficacy: The following are not inventions within the meaning of this Act… The mere discovery of a new form of a known substance which does not result in the enhancement of the known efficacy of that substance or the mere discovery of any new property or new use for a known substance or the mere use of a known process, machine or apparatus unless such known process results in a new product or employs at least one new reactant.
For the purposes of this clause, esters, ethers, polymorphs, metabolites, pure form, particle size, isomers, mixtures of isomers, complexes, combinations, and other derivatives of known substance shall be considered to be the same substance, unless they differ significantly in properties with regard to efficacy. Section 3 d was implemented explicitly to address concerns that additional patents on existing substances could be used to extend market exclusivity and delay generic competition.
Thus to obtain a pharmaceutical patent in India, not only do applicants have to satisfy traditional criteria that are common across all countries, e. As indicated in the introduction, Section 3 d has received considerable attention, but its effects have tended to be exaggerated by both supporters and critics.
Before proceeding to the data and analyses, a quick review of the Indian pharmaceutical patent prosecution process may be useful. FERs range from a few lines to long and detailed documents with extensive discussions of claims.
If the applicant overcomes these objections the patent is granted. Data and empirical approach We started with a set of pharmaceutical applications that were filed globally via the Patent Cooperation Treaty PCT , both to focus on relatively important applications and to allow for comparability of Indian outcomes to those in other jurisdictions.
We then collected information from the WIPO statistics database on all Indian national stage applications; since at the time we collected the data the Indian data were truncated in , we focus the subset with Indian applications filed through For tractability, we focus on applications with priority PCT month July.
This resulted in 1, PCT applications, mapping to 1, Indian national stage applications. We collected Indian outcomes on all — applications from the Indian patent database as of May We record five mutually exclusive categories: applications can be granted, pending still waiting final determination , withdrawn before examination, abandoned after a first examination report issued, or refused. As explained above, if an applicant pursues the application after receiving the FER but is unsuccessful in overcoming the objections raised, the application is considered formally refused.
We also collect data on duration of prosecution for granted patents.
As explained, a novel contribution of our work is that we analyze the first examination reports issued by the patent office after applications have undergone their first substantive review. For all applications with FERs we determined if the reports included any 3 d objections, and also whether they included any novelty or inventive step objections.
We also determined whether there were 3 d objections on the first claim, and, for a subset of applications, whether there were novelty or inventive step objections on Claim 1 as well. While most of our analyses of 3 d focus on FERs, we also use the full prosecution record of some applications to gain a stronger sense of the role of 3 d.

For all applications where there was a 3 d objection on claim 1 of the FER and a final outcome of refusal, and for a random selection of applications with 3 d objections on claim 1 that ultimately were granted by the patent office, we read through the correspondence between applicants and the patent office e.
The claims coding also revealed a handful of pure process applications. For other countries, the delay is longer because of high traffic congestion to Patent Offices that do not have very fast servers.

Languages Add links.While for India, its concerns on IPRs, particularly on patent protection, were clear, its WTO obligations required it to modify its existing patents law. In the United States, however, only the inventor s may apply for a patent although it may be assigned to a corporate entity subsequently  and inventors may be required to assign inventions to their employers under an employment contract.
The product patent regime would disallow such production and trade. Thus to obtain a pharmaceutical patent in India, not only do applicants have to satisfy traditional criteria that are common across all countries, e.
Product patent regime will be particularly favorable to the players already developed and well-equipped in terms of scientific and technical resources. We certainly need a strong legal framework to facilitate this transition. Omission of product patents for agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals was our strength until now.
