Walter (Or for that matter anyone else) - a concrete question:

Does the pharmaceutical drugs industry in Cuba:
i) Have any links to external capital?
ii) Have any specific laws regarding patents & length of them vis-a-vis drugs discovered in Cuba?
iii) Have on their regular listing of drugs available to practitioners anti-cancer agents in especial the newer variety of very (very) expensive, but effective (meaning proven in randomised double blind trials to be better than 'standard care' in improving survival or/& quality of life).

Thanks,
Hari Kumar
