Nycomed's U.S. Patent for Protonix(R) (pantoprazole) Valid
Date:7/19/2010

    ZURICH, July 19, 2010 /PRNewswire/ --

    - Nycomed's Protonix(R) Patent Found Infringed and not Obvious
    - U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey has Upheld Jury
      Findings
    - Nycomed Will Continue to Vigorously Pursue its Damage Claims

Nycomed announced today that Judge Jose L. Linares of the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey has confirmed the jury verdict in favor of Nycomed and Pfizer Inc. The decision upholds the jury verdict issued on April 23, 2010, confirming that the patent is valid and rejecting allegations by the defendants that the patent was invalid as obvious and invalid for double patenting. Against KUDCo, the US generic drug business of the Schwarz Pharma Group, which did not at-risk launch, final Judgment was entered as a result of Judge Jose L. Linares' rulings.

All issues regarding validity and infringement of Nycomed's U.S. patent for Protonix(R) (pantoprazole) have been decided by the District Court in Nycomed's and Pfizer's favor.

Hakan Bjorklund, Chief Executive Officer of Nycomed, commented: "We are very pleased that the court recognized and acknowledged that our patent is valid. Patents represent the foundation of pharmaceutical innovation and are crucial to bring new medicines and treatments to patients who need them."

Nycomed now will continue to vigorously pursue its damage claims in this case, resulting from the launch of generic versions of Protonix(R) at-risk by Teva and Sun. In 2007, before Teva and Sun started their patent infringing generic sales, Protonix(R) sales reached USD 1.9 billion(1), and have since then decreased considerably. Ny
