Brazil's biotech firms: From imitators to innovators in health-related products

  • Recommendations for Brazil

    The government of Brazil has been proactive by making legislative changes and increasing public financing for innovative activities. However, these recent moves are unlikely to be sufficient on their own.

    The MRC study says basic building blocks for an innovative health biotech sector are largely in place in Brazil. Recommendations to accelerate development and commercialization of innovative health products in the country include:

    • Improve the performance and transparency of government institutions involved in health product development, regulation, ethics review and intellectual property (IP) assessment and approval;

    • Promote and support the filing of patents outside Brazil and develop policies that encourage partnerships between Brazilian and off-shore collaborators based on the formation of international IP assets;

    • Administer biosafety and biodiversity laws in ways that encourage use of Brazilian resources for product discovery and creation while still preserving the knowledge rights of the indigenous population;

    • Identify crucial gaps in health product development infrastructure and stimulate the creation of facilities to provide required services;

    • Modify or remove policies that levy taxes or otherwise penalize companies that must out-source portions of their development programs to off-shore vendors;

    • Help build a culture of innovation by stimulating dialogue among regulators, policy makers, academics and the private sector to raise awareness and seek resolution of issues that hamper health product development;

    • Clarify the domain within which the public-sector will operate so as to allow the private sector to better target their investments;

    • Substantially increase R&D commitment to private firms to ensure they are viable employment destin
