Shire Files Lawsuits Against Watson and Roxane for Infringement of VYVANSE(R) (lisdexamfetamine dimesylate) Patents
Date:7/7/2011

DUBLIN, July 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --


 

Shire plc (LSE: SHP, NASDAQ: SHPGY), the global specialty biopharmaceutical company, announces that it has filed lawsuits in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey against Roxane Laboratories, Inc., ("Roxane"), and in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Watson Laboratories, Inc., ("Watson"), respectively, for infringement of certain of Shire's VYVANSE patents.

The lawsuits were initiated in response to Abbreviated New Drug Applications ("ANDAs") filed by each of Roxane and Watson seeking FDA approval to market and sell generic versions of all currently approved doses of VYVANSE.

Under the Hatch-Waxman Act, the FDA must refrain from approving the Roxane and Watson ANDAs before August 23, 2014, or until a district court decision finding that the patents are invalid or not infringed, whichever occurs earlier.

Shire will provide details of any additional Paragraph IV certifications received advising of ANDA filings on VYVANSE, and any litigation that is subsequently initiated, in its periodic filings on Forms 10-Q and 10-K.
