Brinckerhoff Quoted on Prometheus

17 December 2010 The New York Times News

Foley Partner Courtenay Brinckerhoff was quoted in an article that appeared in The New York Times on December 17, 2010 titled “Court Backs Patents for Diagnostic Tests.” Brinckerhoff discusses a Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ruling which upholds that diagnostic tests used to determine whether a patient is getting the proper dose of a medicine can be patented. She states that the decision will be welcomed by those working in personalized medicine and may help improve both the clinical efficacy and cost-efficiency of therapeutic treatment.
