By Remigius N. Nwabueze

Biotechnology and the problem of estate addresses the query of the way the development of estate legislations is able to controlling the pursuits generated by way of the engineering of human tissues. via a comparative attention of non-Western societies and industrialized cultures, this publication addresses the influence of contemporary biotechnology, and its criminal lodging at the widely used behavior and conventional ideals which form the lives of alternative groups. Nwabueze offers an advent to the criminal law of the evolving makes use of of human tissues, and its implications for normal wisdom, ideals and cultures.

Note, however, that isolation and purification of a gene amounts to a patentable invention only on the satisfaction of other patent criteria, such as utility, nonobviousness and industrial application. 64 World Health Organization, Genomics and World Health (Geneva: WHO, 2002), at 136: It is argued that a normal or abnormal gene sequence is, in effect, naturally occurring information which cannot therefore be patentable.

At 544, predicting that: By 2020, the impact of genetics on medicine will be even more widespread. The pharmacogenomics approach for predicting drug responsiveness will be standard practice for quite a number of disorders and drugs. New gene-based ‘designer drugs’ will be introduced to the market for diabetes mellitus, hypertension, mental illness, and many other conditions. Improved diagnosis and treatment of cancer will likely be the most advanced of the clinical consequences of genetics, since a vast amount of molecular information already has been collected about the genetic basis of malignancy.
