The global rise of resistant infectious agents and the threat of pandemics and bio-warfare create an enormous need in fields such as infectious disease (ID) therapeutics, vaccines and personalized medicine. In addition, global initiatives are providing incentives for commercial entities to develop new diagnostics and improved versions of existing therapeutics and vaccines. The current climate requires ID innovators to take a strategic view of the intellectual property issues surrounding proposed products as well as products in development. Betsy Haanes and Helene Carlson recommend a proactive intellectual property strategy over the full life cycle to maximize revenue (mining for gold) and reduce risks such as litigation (avoiding land mines). See the full article attached.
