Mylan Can't Expedite Novartis Blood Transfusion IP Fight

Law360, London (October 13, 2020, 6:29 PM BST) -- A London judge has refused to expedite Novartis AG's lawsuit against Mylan over the rival drugmaker's plans to sell a generic version of its blood transfusion drug, saying its request to hold the trial in a month or two has come too late.

In an Oct. 7 order, High Court Judge Colin Birss rejected Mylan SAS' application to try Novartis' patent claims in November or December. Norvartis sued Mylan and its U.K. subsidiaries for infringement of its iron-reducing drug Exjade, which is used to treat patients who are receiving long-term blood transfusions for a blood disorder and anemias.
