Question by Softballgurl#32: Please help in Biology!!!?
Doctors at a university medical center removed John Moore’s spleen, which is standard treatment for his type of leukemia. The disease did not recur. Researchers kept the spleen cells alive in nutrient medium. They found that some cells produced a blood protein that showed promise as a treatment for cancer and AIDS. They found researchers patented the cells. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled against Moore, stating that his lawsuit “threatens to destroy the economic incentive to conduct important medical research.” Moore argued that the ruling left patients “vulnerable to exploitation at the hands of the state.” Do you think Moore was treated fairly? Is there anything else you would like to know about the case that might help decide?
