Examining Pharmaceutical Patent Practices & Their Impact on Drug Prices

Examining Pharmaceutical Patent Practices & Their Impact on Drug Prices

While pharmaceutical patents and market exclusivity can incentivize innovation in the United States, various patent practices can also impact the affordability of brand drugs and biologics, especially for debilitating conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, and diabetes. BPC will host a panel of experts to discuss the tactics used to delay competition through the patent system and the possible policy solutions to address this important issue.
