Bayer sues Dr Reddy's for patent infringement

Our Bureau

Hyderabad , March 29

THE global pharmaceutical giant Bayer has sued Dr Reddy's Laboratories Ltd alleging patent infringement by the latter on two of the three Orange Book patents held by it.

Bayer has filed a lawsuit against Dr Reddy's in the US district court for the district of Delaware.

The lawsuit was in response to the notification to Bayer by Dr Reddy's Laboratories that it had filed an abbreviated new drug application with the United States Food and Drug Administration for Moxifloxacin tablets 400 mg with paragraph-IV certification on all the Orange Book patents listed for the drug.

Moxifloxacin is the generic version of Bayer's Avelox, which is indicated for the treatment of respiratory tract infections.

The brand had annual sales in the US of approximately $ 207 million, Dr Reddy's said in a press release here on Monday.
