    90 percent or more of the new drugs coming to market are from western nations.
    No developing nations have brougt new drugs to market in decades.

    the US is afraid of the impact of Indian IPR on its special holdings in pharma sector.......the items which US sells for millions are available for few thousands in India, this is directly opposed by capitalists in US.
    it is same as the opposition of food security act by US.
