Zydus Of India, Teva Of Israel Settle Two Generics Disputes

This article was originally published in PharmAsia News

Executive Summary

India's ZydusCadila and Israel's Teva have reached a settlement of generics makers over a patent dispute involving the active pharmaceutical ingredients of multinational company antipsychotic drugs. Zydus and Teva had squabbled over competing generics to be marketed in the United States, but the settlement allows Zydus to sell its versions without facing a legal challenge by Teva.

Zydus had sued Teva over a generic of Johnson & Johnson's Risperdol (risperidone), accusing the Israeli company of antitrust and deceptive filings with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
