Description
Although the period between the third edition of this book and the second is very much less than that between the second and first editions, the degree of rewriting and expansion necessitated by amending legislation and by new case law in the seven years since the second edition has been considerable. However, the overall structure of the legal and regulatory framework that is specific to life sciences in the European Union has remained largely unchanged during that time, allowing the structure of the second edition to be retained, although some chapters have been renamed to reflect changes in emphasis and many have undergone, in addition to the updating and extensive rewriting to which all have been subject, some rearrangement and refocusing. Thus, issues surrounding the disclosure of clinical data are now addressed in Chapter 9, in the same chapter as clinical trials, rather than in Chapter 18, along with data exclusivity; Chapter 6 has been refocused on to the 'product of nature' issue as encountered in biotechnology patenting as well those aspects of the Biotechnology Directive that are not discussed in Chapter 7; and much discussion of the products of biotechnology now takes place in Chapter 5, reflecting the fact that the most important therapeutic biotechnological products today are monoclonal antibodies, which are not found in nature (even though they are often defined by reference to products that are found in nature) and which raise, from a patent point of view, issues that tend to be more akin to those encountered with small molecules than do the first generation of biotechnology products.
