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.

Novartis agreed to withdraw its opposition appeal in the European Patent Office challenging the validity of PDL's Queen patent in Europe.

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