Nature Biotech also reports that a UK court voided a gene patent held by HGS for the neutrokine-a gene sequence as they did not have data to support its biological effects. HGS has licenses with both GSK (lupus) and Eli Lilly - reportedly who has spent $50 M in developing antibodies to neutrokine-a and with plans to spend $250 M in clinical trials.
