Des défenseurs d'un traitement contestent un brevet pour un nouveau médicament contre l'hépatite C
Date:11/24/2013

NEW YORK, 25 novembre 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Open Society Foundations a annoncé aujourd'hui que la demande de brevet de Gilead Science concernant son nouveau médicament, sofosbuvir, avait fait l'objet d'une contestation en Inde par l'Initiative for Medicines, Access & Knowledge.

Cette contestation, déposée la semaine dernière à l'Office des brevets de Calcutta, empêcherait Gilead de détenir le monopole de la production et de la tarification de sofosbuvir. Cela permettrait aux fabricants indiens de produire une version générique du médicament moins onéreuse, ce qui constituerait une première étape vers sa mise à disposition dans d'autres pays à faibles et moyens revenus.

Le traitement avec sofosbuvir est plus court que les traitements actuels, il présente des taux de guérison plus élevés, il peut être administré oralement et il est mieux toléré. Ces atouts ne sont cependant pas à la base d'un brevet. De plus, en Inde, la loi stipule que les produits qui sont des variantes de composés chimiques existants ne sont pas brevetables.

« Sofosbuvir n'est pas suffisamment innovant au niveau moléculaire pour justifier un brevet », explique Els Torreele, directeur de l'initiative « Access to Essential Medicines » d'Open Society Foundations. « Il s'agit d'une bataille à propos de la question de savoir si ce sont les profits ou la vie des patients qui guideront la lutte contre l'hépatite C ».

Sofosbuvir devrait être approuvé aux Etats-Unis et en Europe dans les prochaines semaines et pourrait coûter aux alentours de 80 000 dollars pour une série de traitements. Avec 90 % des personnes atteintes d'hépatite
