08:15 EDTPFEPfizer wins SUTENT patent case In Delaware District Court
Pfizer (PFE) announced today that the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware upheld its basic patent and the L-malate salt patent covering SUTENT capsules. This decision, which is subject to appeal, affirms Pfizer’s right to exclusively provide sunitinib malate as SUTENT to patients through the term of the patent, which expires in 2021. Pfizer filed suit in June 2010 after Mylan (MYL) applied to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to market a generic version of SUTENT prior to the expiration of the patents covering sunitinib malate and its uses. After a four-day trial, the Court agreed that Mylan infringed the valid patents covering SUTENT.

16:41 EDTPFEPfizer confirms FDA labeling approval for EMBEDA capsules
Pfizer announced that the FDA has approved an updated label for EMBEDA extended-release capsules, for oral use to include abuse-deterrence studies. The updated label states that EMBEDA has properties that are expected to reduce abuse via the oral and intranasal routes when crushed. However, abuse of EMBEDA by these routes is still possible. The updated label also includes data from a human abuse potential study of intravenous, or IV, morphine and naltrexone to simulate crushed EMBEDA. However, it is unknown whether the results with simulated crushed EMBEDA predict a reduction in abuse by the IV route until additional postmarketing data are available. EMBEDA is indicated for the management of pain severe enough to require daily, around-the-clock, long-term opioid treatment and for which alternative treatment options are inadequate. Pfizer expects EMBEDA will be available in the U.S. in early 2015.
