Identity, Invention, and the Culture of Personalized Medicine Patenting

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Shubha Ghosh (Wisconsin) has a new book on Identity, Invention, and the Culture of Personalized Medicine Patenting.

BOOK ABSTRACT: What are the normative implications of patenting in the area of personalized medicine? As patents on genes and medical diagnoses have increased over the past decade, this question lies at the intersection of intellectual property theory, identity politics, biomedical ethics, and constitutional law. These patents are part of the personalized medicine industry, which develops medical treatments tailored to individuals based on race and other characteristics. This book provides an overview of developments in personalized medicine patenting and suggests policies to best regulate such patents.
