Three pharmaceutical giants are accused of stealing a patented method for making a COVID-19 vaccine. The three companies are Moderna, Pfizer and BioNTech.
Reuters reported, Promosome LLC alleged patent infringement of the three companies. The small biotechnology company claims that its scientists, including Nobel laureate Gerald Edelman, who died in 2014, Vincent Mauro, and two colleagues from The Scripps Research Institute, developed the method the company is using in its COVID-19 vaccine.
Promosome accuses the company of copying technology that allows mRNA doses that are small enough to be used safely and effectively in vaccines.
“This is a case of a COVID vaccine maker using a public health emergency to make billions of dollars but not sharing it with the legitimate developers of the key technology in this vaccine,” said Promosome attorney Bill Camordy.
The COVID-19 vaccine uses mRNA to send instructions to the immune system to produce specific proteins to fight the COVID-19 virus. Promosome says its technology allows the immune system to produce enough protein to fight viruses with a small dose of mRNA.
The lawsuits say Promosome met with Moderna between 2013 and 2016 to discuss licensing the technology and Promosome’s president demonstrated this to a senior BioNTech scientist in 2015. Promosome said neither company approved the license.
