I think the Patents office is slipshod or very keen on encouraging pirating and patenting of indigenous knowledge. There is NOTHING unique or special requiring any exercise of intelligence in saying Clerodendrum viscosum is used in India extensively to treat a method for treating cervical cancer and is used extensively in Ayurveda. These are well known facts. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clerodendrum_infortunatum#Ayurvedic_and_Siddha_medicines, http://www.toxicologycentre.com/english/plants/Botanical/perigalam.html and many other resources that I was able to find by the simple act of googling. Is the patenting of traditional knowledge allowed when it is in use extensively. This is against Indian law also. This is an illegal act and should be rescinded forthwith. This sort of incompetent action can lead to international conflict in patents and US strong arm methods may not work any more in this field.
will the patent office notice this fact and rescind the patent? How can i go about filing a complaint?
