What Will It Take To Address The Global Threat Of Antibiotic Resistance?, Kevin Outterson, Steven J. Hoffman Jul 2015

What Will It Take To Address The Global Threat Of Antibiotic Resistance?, Kevin Outterson, Steven J. Hoffman

Faculty Scholarship

Antibiotic resistance is a global threat that may be beyond the capacity of any one country to address. We assess the three primary issues (access, conservation and innovation) and discuss which require higher levels of global coordination.


Repairing The Broken Market For Antibiotic Innovation, Kevin Outterson, John H. Powers, Gregory W. Daniel, Mark B. Mcclellan Feb 2015

Repairing The Broken Market For Antibiotic Innovation, Kevin Outterson, John H. Powers, Gregory W. Daniel, Mark B. Mcclellan

Faculty Scholarship

Multidrug-resistant bacterial diseases pose serious and growing threats to human health. While innovation is important to all areas of health research, it is uniquely important in antibiotics. Resistance destroys the fruit of prior research, making it necessary to constantly innovate to avoid falling back into a pre-antibiotic era. But investment is declining in antibiotics, driven by competition from older antibiotics, the cost and uncertainty of the development process, and limited reimbursement incentives. Good public health practices curb inappropriate antibiotic use, making return on investment challenging in payment systems based on sales volume. We assess the impact of recent initiatives to …


The Federal Common Law Of Nations, Anthony J. Bellia, Bradford R. Clark Oct 2013

The Federal Common Law Of Nations, Anthony J. Bellia, Bradford R. Clark

Anthony J. Bellia

Courts and scholars have vigorously debated the proper role of customary international law in American courts: To what extent should it be considered federal common law, state law, or general law? The debate has reached something of an impasse, in part because various positions rely on, but also are in tension with, historical practice and constitutional structure. This Article describes the role that the law of nations actually has played throughout American history. In keeping with the original constitutional design, federal courts for much of that history enforced certain rules respecting other nations' perfect rights (or close analogues) under the …

"What's A Nice Girl Like You Doing With A Nobel Prize?" Elizabeth Blackburn, "Australia's First Women Nobel Laureate And Women's Scientific Leadership, Jane L. Carey Jan 2012

"What's A Nice Girl Like You Doing With A Nobel Prize?" Elizabeth Blackburn, "Australia's First Women Nobel Laureate And Women's Scientific Leadership, Jane L. Carey

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers (Archive)

In 2009 Elizabeth Blackburn (along with two of her American colleagues) won the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine, confirming her position as a global scientific leader. She was immediately celebrated as Australia’s first woman Nobel laureate. However, although 2009 was a ‘bumper’ year for women Nobel laureates, with five winners in total, the media coverage soon became highly negative and discouraging. Much discussion focused not on Blackburn’s scientific work but on her gender – the difficulties it was assumed she must have faced individually as a woman scientist, and her wider leadership role in encouraging and supporting other women …


Improving Antibiotic Markets For Long Term Sustainability, Kevin Outterson Jan 2011

Improving Antibiotic Markets For Long Term Sustainability, Kevin Outterson

Faculty Scholarship

The world faces a worsening public health crisis: A growing number of bacteria are resistant to available antibiotics. Yet there are few new antibiotics in the development pipeline to take the place of these increasingly ineffective drugs. We review a number of proposals intended to bolster drug development, including such financial incentives for pharmaceutical manufacturers as extending the effective patent life for new antibiotics. However, such strategies directly conflict with the clear need to reduce unnecessary antibiotic prescriptions and could actually increase prescription use. As an alternative, we recommend a two-prong, “integrated” strategy based on prizes administered through the insurance …


Letters Of Marque And Reprisal: The Constitutional Law And Practice Of Privateering, Theodore M. Cooperstein Apr 2009

Letters Of Marque And Reprisal: The Constitutional Law And Practice Of Privateering, Theodore M. Cooperstein

Theodore M Cooperstein

The United States Constitution grants to the Congress the power, among others, to issue “Letters of Marque and Reprisal.” Although the practice seems to have fallen into disuse in this century, it was an important tool of national power for the federal government created by the Framers, who placed great import on the federal government’s role in protecting international commerce and in enforcing international law.

Privateering played a significant role before and during the Revolutionary War, and it persisted in American history as an economical way to augment naval forces against an enemy in wartime. A significant outgrowth of the …

When Second Comes First: Correcting Patent’S Poor Secondary Incentives Through An Optional Patent Purchase System, Jordan Barry Jan 2007

When Second Comes First: Correcting Patent’S Poor Secondary Incentives Through An Optional Patent Purchase System, Jordan Barry

ExpressO

As research has advanced, technologies have become more closely knit, and the relationships between them—both complementary and competitive—have become increasingly important. Unfortunately, the patent system’s use of monopoly power to reward innovators creates inefficient results by overly encouraging the development of substitute technologies and discouraging the development of complementary technologies. This paper explains how an optional patent purchase system could help ameliorate such problems and discusses the implications of such a system.

Merchandising Through Use Of Lotteries, Robert V. Bullock Jan 1970

Merchandising Through Use Of Lotteries, Robert V. Bullock

Cleveland State Law Review

It has been almost universally held that there must be three elements present for a promotion to constitute a lottery. These elements are consideration, chance, and prize. The absence of any one of these elements is fatal to identifying the transaction as a lottery.Promoters are continually modifying and shading each of these three elements, however, so that the courts and government officials must constantly reappraise their positions to protect both the public and legitimate business.
