Supreme Court Of India Rejects Patent Protection for Novartis' Glivec (NVS)Apr 2, 2013Healthcare solution provider, Novartis AG (NVS) failed to win patent protection for Glivec on Monday. The court in India has rejected patent protection for NVS's cancer drug Glivec. The denial of the patent protection came as a major disappointment to the company, but as a victory for makers of low priced generic drugs. India's generic drug industry has turned into a $13 billion a year industry, which comes to a great relief to a majority of the country's 1.2 billion residents who are unable to afford expensive patent protected drugs. India's Cipla Ltd and Natco Pharma Ltd are two companies that will benefit from the rejection of patent protection. The companies already sell a generic version of the drug at a price one-tenth of the patented drug. The decision to block the patent protection for NVS comes after a legal battle which began in 2006. There has been much controversy regarding high priced drugs in the country. Novartis shares were up 59 cents, or 0.83% during premarket trading Tuesday. The stock has increased 28% in the past year.
