Patent v. Publication

Does anybody know of a case where a drug (or proto-drug) was discovered by
university researchers who published the results (and did not patent
them), and then a pharmaceutical company developed and marketed that drug
(likely with some sort of patent on the development)?
Any leads would be appreciated.  I am currently researching the role of
patents in the innovation process in biotechnology related industries.
Thank you,
