Spy story on tissue regeneration. Trial to defend Human Brain Wave

19 Sep 2022  |  www.panorama.it
A complex industrial espionage case has emerged involving biotechnology companies Human Brain Wave Srl (HBW) and Ctsv Srl. The Turin court judge Francesca Roseti has rejected the prosecutor's request to archive the case, instead ordering the indictment of Armando Roggero, administrator of Ctsv Srl, for allegedly counterfeiting HBW's patent in regenerative medicine. The dispute centers around a medical device called Rigeneracons, developed by HBW for regenerating human tissues using the patient's biological material. Ctsv Srl, which once had a production agreement with HBW, is accused of marketing a similar device, Medicons-P, in violation of HBW's industrial property rights. Despite the technical consultants' findings supporting HBW's claims, the prosecutor had moved to close the case, a decision now overturned by the judge, who has given the prosecutor ten days to formulate charges against Roggero for revealing scientific and industrial secrets and manufacturing and trading goods by usurping industrial property titles.
