Litigation Note: Crowell & Moring Secures IP Victory for Apotex

Washington, D.C. - October 1, 2015: Crowell & Moring represented Apotex in successfully challenging the validity of U.S. Patent No. 8,324,283 before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office Patent Trial and Appeals Board (PTAB). Apotex, along with generic pharmaceutical companies Torrent Pharmaceuticals and Mylan Pharmaceuticals, petitioned the PTAB to invalidate the '283 patent related to oral formulations for the administration of the multiple sclerosis drug fingolimod, marketed by Novartis as Gilenya®. As a result, all claims of the '283 patent were found invalid by PTAB.
