INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev., Feb. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- PDL BioPharma, Inc. (PDL) (Nasdaq: PDLI) today announced that it has entered into a definitive settlement agreement with Novartis that resolves all disputes between them.  Under the settlement agreement, PDL agreed to dismiss its claims against Novartis in its action in Nevada court, which also includes Genentech, Inc. (Genentech) and F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd (Roche) as defendants. Novartis agreed to withdraw its opposition appeal in the European Patent Office challenging the validity of PDL's Queen patent in Europe. In addition, PDL agreed to pay Novartis certain amounts based on net sales of Lucentis made by Novartis during calendar year 2011 and beyond.

The settlement with Novartis does not affect PDL's claims against Genentech and Roche in the Nevada state court action.
