This chapter examines the growing importance of patents, trademarks, and generic names in the first decade of the twentieth-century. The chapter examines the 1905 Trademark Act, antitrust law, the origins of the Council on Pharmacy and Chemistry, and the origins of the 1906 Pure Food and Drug Act. The chapter also examines the development of Adrenalin. Finally, the chapter argues that by the outbreak of World War I ethical manufacturers had begun to reflect the changes in medical ethics and embraced the use of product patents, thus ushering in a new approach to scientific drug development.

Keywords:   patents, trademarks, generic names, antitrust law, Pure Food and Drugs Act, Council on Pharmacy, medical ethics, therapeutic reform, adrenalin
