Análise da participação brasileira no depósito de patentes relacionadas à tuberculose pulmonar

Abstract : For mass extraction and use of information described in patents it is necessary to use computational tools of data mining, since the manual evaluation of these documents is a very complex task. Therefore, the aim of this paper was to use Patent2net mining tool to extract from Espacenet database information regarding Brazilian involvement in the development of technologies related to pulmonary tuberculosis, and to identify patented inventions in other countries, whose protection has not been extended to Brazil, and that can be used to prevent such an important neglected disease in the national context. As main results, 1,585 patents were identified, deposited between the years 1897 and 2017 in 30 countries, without the participation of inventors or Brazilian companies, which mainly described technologies related to antibiotic and antiseptic agents, both natural and allopathic, but focused on the treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis, and not on prevention. In a second moment, was identified a patent describing a disposable vacuum cleaner with low cost of production, free for reproduction in Brazil, with potential applicability in the prophylaxis of cross-infection in tuberculosis, which may contribute to minimize the disease-related problem both in Brazil and in other countries.
