CANCER GROUP LOOSES LANDMARK CASE. Sorry day for humanity!
Federal Court finds for human gene patent by a company
The concern was about access to research, development of treatments and cures for genetically transmitted diseases.
That's was the concern, and the repercussions of this decision could affect us all.
The loss of this case will have very broad implications.
This suit had the strong support of most medical researchers, however it was not taken into account at all!

Its a sorry day for humanity!
