    The Paediatric Regulation was to encourage specific research – and dissemination of knowledge about its results —into already known medicines as to their applicability for children. Prior to the Regulation there was no specific incentive for such research. The Paediatric Regulation provides an incentive – an extra six months of protection —for having conducted such research.

  • R (Quintavalle) v Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority
    • Queen's Bench Division (Administrative Court)
    • 20 Dic 2002

    On 22 February 2002, the Licence Committee granted the clinic a licence in relation to (amongst other things) PGD pre-implantation genetic screening for aneuploidy, subject to many conditions, including one forbidding the use of information derived from tests on an embryo or any material removed from it to select embryos of a particular sex “for social reasons”.

    In Supplementary Grounds of Opposition dated 31 July 2002 it was suggested that suitable conditions to be imposed on a licence might include (a) that no material recovered from an embryo may be subjected to a test which supplies genetic information about the embryo that is not listed in an annex to the licence or specifically approved by a licence committee in any particular case; and (b) that no embryo may be transferred to a woman where any material removed from it has been subject to a test which supplies genetic information about the embryo that is not listed in an annex or approved by a licence committee in any particular case.

  • Quintavalle v Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority
    • House of Lords
    • 28 Abr 2005

    But, like all guidance on construction, Lord Wilberforce's remarks are more appropriate to some cases than others. This is not a case in which one starts with the presumption that Parliament's intention was directed to the state of affairs existing at the time of the Act. It obviously intended to regulate research and treatment which were not possible at the time.

  • Illumina, Inc. and Others (Claimants to case no HC-2015-001175) Illumina, Inc. and Another (Claimants in case no HP-2015-000047) v Premaitha Health Plc and Another (Defendants in case nos HC-2015-001175 HP-2015-000047)

    Lo 1, and the other Patents, are subject to a Pooled Patents Agreement dated 2 December 2014 between Illumina and Sequenom ("the PPA"), which concerns intellectual property relating to NIPD. Illumina alleged that an exclusive licence under the Lo 1 Patent was granted by Sequenom to Illumina under Section 2.3 of the PPA.

  • R v Secretary of State for Social Services, ex parte Wellcome Foundation Ltd
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 03 Jun 1987

    Good policy-making, administration and decision taking involve studying problems from all angles. It is a practical process and must never be allowed, and still less induced, to become a theoretical or legalistic exercise. For my part I can find nothing whatsoever to criticise in the approach of a decision maker which involves him in saying to himself, "I do not know whether, as a matter of law, factor A is or is not a relevant consideration.
