18:32 EDTTEVASupreme Court denies Teva stay in generic Copaxone case
Teva Pharmaceutical Industries announced that while the Chief Justice of the United States found that Teva had demonstrated “a fair prospect of success on the merits” in its appeal of a decision from the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit that invalidated the claim of U.S. Patent 5,800,808, he denied the company’s application to stay the Federal Circuit's decision due to the potential for the company to recover patent infringement damages. The ‘808 patent expires on September 1, 2015 and claims a process for manufacturing the active ingredient of Teva’s relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis, RRMS, product, Copaxone 20mg/mL. Teva will continue pursuing its appeal in the Supreme Court and defending its intellectual property for Copaxone. Teva previously prevailed in the District Court, which upheld the validity of nine Copaxone patents, including the ‘808 patent. A ruling last year by the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit upheld some of the COPAXONE patents that expire in May, while invalidating the ‘808 patent that is the subject of Teva’s now-granted certiorari petition. Any purported generic version of Copaxone would be required to obtain the approval of the FDA prior to being made available to the public. The inability to fully characterize the active ingredients of the product leads many experts to believe that the only way to ensure the safety, efficacy and immunogenicity of any purported generic version of Copaxone would be through full-scale, placebo-controlled clinical trials with measured clinical endpoints in RRMS patients. The company is confident Copaxone will remain a proprietary, global market leading product for the reduction in the frequency of relapses in RRMS patients over the product’s lifecycle, given the strength of its intellectual property rights.
