Medicines Patent Pool Updates MedsPaL Database To Include Additional Small Molecule Medicines

Medicines Patent Pool: The Medicines Patent Pool publishes intellectual property status of 18 drugs added to WHO Essential Medicines List
“The Medicines Patent Pool [last week] announced the first of a two-step update of its database MedsPaL to include additional patented small molecule medicines following the publication of the World Health Organization (WHO)’s updated Model List of Essential Medicines (EML) in July. Launched in 2016, MedsPaL is a free resource on the intellectual property status of patented medicines included in the WHO EML for low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Initially covering selected HIV, hepatitis C, and tuberculosis medicines in LMICs, MedsPaL expanded to all patented treatments on the EML in 2017…” (10/2).
