11:23 EDTJNJAppeals court reverses patent ruling in favor of J&J unit over Covidien
Ethicon Endo-Surgery, a Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) company, appealed a district court judgment regarding certain asserted patent claims of Tyco Healthcare. The appeals court affirmed-in-part, reversed-in-part, and vacated-in-part the prior judgment, because the lower courtís 102(g) findings were correct, but its 103 determination was improper, "including its decision to exclude the 102(g) prior art from the obviousness analysis," the court stated. In 2007, Tyco Healthcare changed its name to Covidien (COV). Reference Link
09:01 EDTJNJVA negotiated $594 per dose price for Gilead HCV treatment
A Veterans Health Administration official told a Senate committee yesterday that Veterans' Affairs has "moved rapidly to deploy new, more effective, less toxic HCV treatments and has been able to negotiate significant discounts for these newer therapies." The agency negotiated a price of $594 per dose for Gilead's (GILD) Hepatitis C virus drug Sofosbuvir, below the commercial price of $1,000 per dose, VHA Chief Consultant for Pharmacy Benefits Management Michael Valentino told the Senate's Committee on Veterans' Affairs. The agency also received a $413 per dose price for Johnson & Johnson's (JNJ) Simeprevir, below the commerical price of $790. The VA has approximately 174,000 veterans in care with HCV, making it the largest single HCV provider in the U.S., Valentino pointed out. He added, "Like the rest of the country, VA has treated only a portion of Veterans for HCV because treatment and cures have been difficult to achieve due to low efficacy and high toxicity of standard drug therapies."
