Japanese guidelines specify the terms of gene patents

, : Japanese guidelines specify the terms of gene patents. Nature 401(6755): 731-731

The Japanese Patent Office has unveiled new guidelines on human gene patents. The guidelines, released on October 5, were in response to a call from Japanese researchers and industry for guidance, particularly following the government's decision to increase support for biotechnology. The guidelines state that human genes cannot be patented unless they are sequenced and demonstrate utility, such as in diagnosis or therapy. Conditions for patenting a sequence linked to a disease that can be used as a probe are also specified.
