SAN DIEGO, May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Verus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Verus"), a specialty pharmaceutical company, announced today that it has filed a lawsuit against AstraZeneca AB ("AstraZeneca") and Tika Lakemedel AB ("Tika") in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, in which it is seeking $1.3 billion on claims of fraud, breach of contract, and conversion. Verus claims that AstraZeneca and its wholly owned subsidiary Tika disregarded their obligations under three agreements with Verus, entered into in 2007, pursuant to which the defendants were to pursue the research and development of Verus' assets, including budesonide, a steroid for the treatment of pediatric asthma in the United States.
