Patented Genes: It’s MORE Than Just a Court Case

One corporation, Myriad Genetics, holds a patent on the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes which are a ‘product of nature.’  Because they hold the patent, that means no one other than them can develop even a simple test to test for mutations in these genes because it would be a patent violation.

What that means is that YOU could die because you relied on a test that said you’re negative for cancer, when you were actually POSITIVE for CANCER.

How many women have to needlessly DIE before the BRCA1/BRCA2 patent held by Myriad Genetics is repealed?
