June 28 (Bloomberg) -- Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd., the world’s largest generic-drug maker, was sued for patent infringement by a U.S. unit of UCB SA in a bid to block plans to copy the epilepsy drug Vimpat.

UCB, based in Brussels, seeks unspecified damages from Petach Tikva, Israel-based Teva, according to a complaint filed today in federal court in Wilmington, Delaware.

Denise Bradley, a Teva spokeswoman, said in an e-mailed message that the company would have no comment on the lawsuit.
