And how did the holder of the original patent gain from the development of such new products?
Nothing, because he now had competition with same MOA in the market place. It's farlly common for the 2nd or 3rd compound in a new MOA to have the best attributes. The original patent holder still has the rights to his compound, it's just that there's more competition, which is good.
