Data exclusivity in Brazil

The Life Sciences Intellectual Property Review is a new periodical published by Newton Media. The first issue contains an article by Otto Banho Licks (Momsen Leonardos & Cia, Brazil) on developments in Brazil concerning the enforcement and infringement of IP rights in pharma products, looking particularly at the position regarding data package exclusivity rights. The author explains the context of TRIPs Art.39(3), its implementation within Brazil and the controversial activities of the governmental agency responsible, the Agência Nacional de Vigilância Sanitária (ANVISA).
