LabCorp v. Metabolite, Inc. is a court case related to the
patentability of scientific principles which the U.S. Supreme Court
agreed to hear, and later dismissed, in 2006. In 1999, Metabolite
sued LabCorp for infringement of a patent covering a diagnostic
test. The claims of Metabolite's patent include the correlation
between levels of homocysteine and vitamins B6 and B12. A jury
ordered LabCorp to pay $4.7 million in damages and the decision was
upheld by a federal court, which further stated that doctors were
'directly infringing' Metabolite's patents each time such a test is
ordered and interpreted.
