Lupin loses patent suit about Ramipril in America
MUMBAI: Pharmaceutical company Lupin on Thursday said a district court in the US has ruled against the company in a patent infringement suit filed by Sanofi-Aventis and King Pharmaceuticals.
“It was a very close call for us and we are disappointed that the Court found the patent to be valid, albeit reluctantly, in the judge’s own words,” said Lupin MD Kamal Sharma. The company plans to appeal this decision to the federal circuit court, Mr Sharma added.
The court’s decision followed a suit filed by King Pharmaceuticals and Sanofi-Aventis against Lupin alleging infringement on the ‘5061722’ patent. The trial was completed in June ’06.
