TPP seeks to prevent access to trial data


“Data exclusivity is a TRIPS plus provision that restricts access to essential clinical trial data pertaining to the safety and efficacy of drugs. Data exclusivity measures prevent generic manufacturers from using existing clinical research to gain regulatory approval of their medicines, forcing them to perform duplicate clinical trials or wait for the “data monopoly” period to end.”
