This case involves a biotech company that developed cancer-fighting drugs. The company partnered with a pharmaceutical company to develop a new-generation of cancer drugs. One of the drugs that the two companies developed became a successful drug for treating liver and kidney cancer, and also showed promise for treating colorectal and breast cancer. The pharmaceutical company soon synthesized and began marketing a compound that was virtually identical to the cancer-fighting compound in the drug that they had developed together. The biotech company claimed that the new drug had actually been identified during the collaboration period and that the pharmaceutical company’s actions of marketing the new drug violated their collaboration agreement. The biotech company also claimed that the pharmaceutical company was marketing the new drug in direct competition with the drug they had discovered together and that this meant that the two drugs were illegally competing for market share and for research funding.
