PITTSBURGH, July 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mylan Inc. (Nasdaq: MYL) today
announced that Judge Katherine Forrest of the U.S. District Court for the
Southern District of New York has dismissed Teva's lawsuit alleging that
Mylan's Abbreviated New Drug Application ("ANDA") for its generic version of
Copaxone® (glatiramer acetate) would infringe four patents held by Teva (U.S.
Patent Nos. 66,514,938, 7,074,580, 7,163,802, and 7,615,359).

Mylan is appealing to the Federal Circuit a separate decision involving other
Teva patents (U.S. Patent Nos. 5,800,808, 5,981,589, 6,048,898, 6,054,430,
6,342,476, 6,362,161, 6, 620,847, 6,939,539 and 7,199,098), which were upheld
by retired Judge Barbara Jones of the Southern District of New York. Oral
argument on Mylan's appeal was held on May 7, 2013. Mylan anticipates that a
favorable appellate decision on these patents would clear Mylan for launch
upon receipt of final regulatory approval.
