Stanford loses Roche HIV patent dispute

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday threw out Stanford University's patent suit against a Roche Holding AG subsidiary involving an HIV diagnostic test, the Wall Street Journal reports.
The court voted 7-2 to uphold a lower-court decision that a Stanford scientist transferred discovery rights to Cetus Corp., in exchange for information and facilities from the company.
Those rights were eventually transferred to Roche.
