Pharmaceutical Patents

Pharmaceutical patents protect manufacturers of prescription drugs, prohibiting others from producing a drug during the length of its patent protection. The length of these patents varies in different countries, though they are usually between 15-20 years. In the U.S., a pharmaceutical patent is valid for 20 years. Drug companies usually apply for patent protection before they actually begin producing the drug, opting instead to secure their rights to a particular compound at the beginning of the testing process. By the time a drug comes to market, there may only be 8-10 years of patent protection remaining, which is significantly less than the 20 offered by the patent. Companies often attempt to extend these patents by making slight reformulations of the original compound or proving its effectiveness at treating a condition other than the one for which it was originally granted a patent. This is referred to as "evergreening", a practice which many criticize.

For further information on the process of obtaining pharmaceutical patents and regulatory approval, see Clinical Trials and FDA Approval.
