  2. 2. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us PROBIOTICS PATENTING TRENDS IN INDIA
  3. 3. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us Probiotic literally means “for life.” The Joint Food and Agriculture Organization/World Health Organization defines probiotics as “live microorganisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host.” WHAT ARE PROBIOTICS ?
  4. 4. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us Probiotics have been shown to have beneficial effects against various diseases and disorders, most common are: • Gastrointestinal disorders • Allergies- Skin, respiratory, food • Cardiovascular diseases • Metabolic disorders like Diabetes • Obesity and overweight • Urinogenital infections • Kidney disorders • Neurological disorders. BENEFITS Of PROBIOTICS
  5. 5. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us DEVELOPMENT OF MUCOSAL BARRIER PRODUCTION OF SHORT-CHAIN FATTY ACIDS METABOLISM OF BILE ACIDS REDUCTION OF pH IN LARGE BOWEL SYNTHESIS OF VITAMINS IMMUNE SYSTEM ACTIVATION PROBIOTICS BENEFITS
  6. 6. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us Fermented products with live organisms have existed for centuries and were developed because of the need to extend the shelf-life of common and precious commodities like dairy and became one of the oldest forms of preservation. HISTORY OF PROBIOTICS
  7. 7. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us The ability of beneficial bacteria to transform milk into a longer lasting food was recorded as far back as 6,000 years ago. Long before the existence of microorganisms was even known or recognized, fermented products were used therapeutically, to treat colds, fevers, and ailments of the gastrointestinal tract such as constipation and diarrhea. HISTORY OF PROBIOTICS
  8. 8. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us Russian scientist and Nobel laureate Élie Metchnikoff, beginning of the 20th century suggested that it would be possible to modify the gut flora and to replace harmful microbes with useful microbes. Metchnikoff, at that time a professor at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, proposed the hypothesis that the ageing process results for the activity of putrefactive (proteolytic) microbes producing toxic substances (phenols, ammonia) in the large bowel. HISTORY OF PROBIOTICS
  9. 9. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us According to Metchnikoff, these compounds were responsible for what he called "intestinal auto- intoxication", which caused the physical changes associated with old age. HISTORY OF PROBIOTICS
  10. 10. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us Milk Fermented with lactic-acid bacteria inhibited the growth of proteolytic bacteria because of the low pH produced by the fermentation of lactose. Metchnikoff had also observed that certain rural populations in Europe, for example, in Bulgaria and the Russian steppes who lived largely on milk fermented by lactic-acid bacteria were exceptionally long lived. HISTORY OF PROBIOTICS
  11. 11. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us Metchnikoff proposed that consumption of fermented milk would "seed" the intestine with harmless lactic-acid bacteria and decrease the intestinal pH and that this would suppress the growth of proteolytic bacteria. Metchnikoff himself introduced in his diet sour milk fermented with the bacteria he called "Bulgarian Bacillus" and found his health benefited. HISTORY OF PROBIOTICS
  12. 12. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us ● Persian tradition asserts that the biblical patriarch Abraham owed his longevity to a diet of fermented milk. ● Later, Tissier found that bifidobacteria are dominant in the gut flora of breast-fed babies and he observed clinical benefits from treating diarrhea in infants with bifidobacteria. The claimed effect was bifidobacterial displacement of proteolytic bacteria causing the disease. HISTORY OF PROBIOTICS
  13. 13. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us ● During an outbreak of shigellosis in 1917, German professor Alfred Nissle isolated a strain of E. coli from the feces of a soldier who was not affected by the disease. Nissle used the Escherichia coli Nissle 1917 strain in acute gastrointestinal infectious Salmonellosis and Shigellosis. ● In 1920, Rettger demonstrated that Metchnikoff's "Bulgarian Bacillus", later called Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus, could not live in the human intestine. Metchnikoff's theory was disputable (at this stage) and people doubted his theory of longevity. HISTORY OF PROBIOTICS
  14. 14. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us ● After Metchnikoff's death in 1916, the centre of activity moved to the United States. It was reasoned that bacteria originating from the gut were more likely to produce the desired effect in the gut, and in 1935 certain strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus were found to be very active when implanted in the human digestive tract. ● In early 1930’s, in Japan, Minoru Shirota a researcher at the Faculty of Medicine at Kyoto University developed a fermented milk product called Yakult. HISTORY OF PROBIOTICS
  15. 15. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us ● The term "probiotics" was first introduced in 1953 by Werner Kollath. Contrasting antibiotics, probiotics were defined as microbially derived factors that stimulate the growth of other microorganisms. In 1989, Roy Fuller suggested a definition of probiotics that has been widely used: "A live microbial feed supplement which beneficially affects the host animal by improving its intestinal microbial balance". Fuller's definition emphasizes the requirement of viability for probiotics and introduces the aspect of a beneficial effect on the host. HISTORY OF PROBIOTICS
  16. 16. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us In the following decades, intestinal lactic acid bacterial species with purported health beneficial properties have been introduced as probiotics, including Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Lactobacillus casei, and Lactobacillus johnsonii. HISTORY OF PROBIOTICS Lactobacillus johnsonii
  17. 17. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us Inventions in the field of probiotics include- ❖ Method for isolating/extracting/conditioning/modifying live micro-organisms including various strains of bacteria and yeast ❖ New strains of bacteria and yeast ❖ Compositions/formulations/products comprising micro- organisms ❖ Use of probiotics PATENTABLE SUBJECT MATTER
  18. 18. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us CRITERIA FOR PATENTABILITY The relevant sections of the Patent Act applicable for ascertaining patentability of probiotic related invention are: Section 3(c): the mere discovery of a scientific principle or the formulation of an abstract theory or discovery of any living thing or non-living substance occurring in nature.
  19. 19. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us Section 3(d): the mere discovery of a new form of a known substance, which does not result in the enhancement of the known efficacy of that substance or the mere discovery of any new property or new use for a known substance or mere use of a known process, machine or apparatus unless such known process results in a new product or employs at least one new reactant.

  24. 24. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us PROBIOTICS – AN INDIAN SCENARIO Within the functional foods, probiotics is the rapidly expanding, active arena. In probiotic revolution, India can play a key role as being the largest producer of milk and having world’s highest cattle population. Indian probiotic industry is in its infancy stage and presently accounts for only a small fraction i.e. less than 1% of the total world market turnover in the probiotic industry. But Probiotic industry is evolving at a steady pace with conditions set for tremendous growth in near future.
  25. 25. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us PROBIOTICS – AN INDIAN SCENARIO India is emerging as a major probiotic market of the future with annual growth rate of 22.6% until 2015 with a handful of players in Indian probiotic industry are Amul, Mother Dairy, Yakult Danone and Nestle along with other minor players operating in different regions in their own capacities. With their advent, the Indian probiotic market turnover is expected to reach $8 million by the year 2015. Probiotics in India generally comes in two forms, milk and fermented milk products with the former occupying 62% of the market share and the latter having 38% marketshare (Indian consumer survey, 2010). Source: ProbioticIndia
  26. 26. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us PROBIOTICS – AN INDIAN SCENARIO Amul was the first to make a dent at National level with its probiotic ice creams prolife in February, 2007. Amul, on the other hand, having tasted success in the probiotics category with its ice cream introduced probiotic lassi. Probiotic products contribute to 10% to its ice-cream sales and 25 per cent of its Dahi (Indian yoghurt) sales. Mother Dairy has the largest milk (liquid/unprocessed) plants in Asia selling more than 25 lakh liters of milk per day. b-Activ Probiotic Dahi, b-Activ Probiotic Lassi, b- Activ Curd and Nutrifit (Strawberry and Mango) are the company’s probiotic products. Probiotic products are contributing to 15% of the turnover of their fresh dairy products.
  27. 27. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us PROBIOTICS – AN INDIAN SCENARIO Nestle NESVITA was India’s first Dahi with Probiotics – For Healthy Digestion. Yakult Danone India Pvt Ltd (YDIPL) is a 50:50 joint venture between Japan’s Yakult Honsha and The French- Danone Group and is offering Yakult, a probiotic drink made from fermented milk, Lactobacillus and some sugar. The entry of Yakult is expected to increase the visibility and growth of probiotic category in India. Major players in the probiotics drug market in India include companies like Ranbaxy (Binifit), Dr. Reddy's Laboratories, which has four probiotic brands, Zydus Cadila, Unichem, JB Chem, and Glaxo SmithKline. While probiotics in the form of drugs are widely accepted, probiotic foods are still viewed with scepticism.
  28. 28. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us PROBIOTICS – GLOBAL SCENARIO Knowledge in probiotic continues to expand on daily basis. The progressive interest in ‘these magic bugs’ has grown enormously during the last few years due to their protective role in the gut to keep our gut healthy and fit. Probiotics have gained tremendous popularity amongst individuals searching for alternative and “natural” means to promote intestinal health.
  29. 29. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us PROBIOTICS – GLOBAL SCENARIO The growth of probiotic products in the developed world has been quite amazing. According to a new market research report, 'Probiotics Market’ (2009-2014), published by Markets and Markets, the global probiotics market is expected to be worth US $ 31.1 bn by 2015 with the Europe and Asia accounting for nearly 42 and 30% of the total revenues respectively. Europe forms the largest market for probiotics with an estimated $13.5 billion by 2014. Asia is the second largest segment, growing at with an estimated CAGR of 11.2% to reach $9.0 billion by 2014.
  30. 30. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us PROBIOTICS – GLOBAL SCENARIO A Frost and Sullivan study estimates that the probiotic ingredient market in the US was $450 million in 2010. Probiotics, with a market of $3.23 billion is a large part of Japanese functional foods. The Japanese spent $126 per person per year on functional foods and it is higher than other countries including US ($67.9), Europe ($51.2) and Asia ($3.20). According to Euromonitor International’s packaged food data, in 2000, pro/prebiotic yogurt (both drinking and spoonable combined) accounted for one-quarter of global yogurt sales by value. A decade later, in 2010, it accounted for one-third. global value for sales of probiotic dietary supplements almost tripled, amounting to US$2.2 billion in 2010, thereby, further suggesting that probiotics are spreading like wildfire around the globe.
  31. 31. http://www.techcorplegal.com Email us: info@techcorplegal.com Follow Us PROBIOTICS – GLOBAL SCENARIO Normalization of the properties of unbalanced indigenous microflora of the intestinal tract by ingestion of specific strains of the healthy microflora forms the rationale of probiotic therapy. It is now well recognized that probiotics hold great promise and have the prospects to serve as candidate biotherapeutics in the management of inflammatory metabolic disorders including cardiovascular diseases such as atherosclerosis, hypertension and stroke etc. So many food companies are expanding their market profile to the most promising growth markets for probiotics. Some of the probiotic products available worldwide are presented in the following table.
