FILE – In this Jan. 29, 2007 file photo, Indian police officers block demonstrators protesting against Swiss drug maker Novartis AG's case against Indian government on drug patents in New Delhi, India. The case - involving Novartis AG's cancer drug Glivec - pits aid groups that argue India plays a vital role as the pharmacy to the poor against drug companies that insist they need strong patents to make drug development profitable. A ruling by India’s Supreme Court is expected in early 2013. (AP Photo/Saurabh Das, File)
