AIDS Healthcare Foundation Begins Legal Battle to Strip Gilead Sciences Inc of Patents on HIV/AIDS Drug Genvoya

AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) is suing Gilead Sciences Inc, looking to persuade a California district court to invalidate patents on the company's HIV/AIDS drug Genvoya (elvitegravir, cobicistat, emtricitabine and tenofovir alafenamide). Gilead has resorted to patent system manipulation and anti-competitive practices in its relentless pursuit of maximum profits. The lawsuit focuses on patents related to Tenofovir, one of the compounds included in Gilead's TAF-based oral regimen. As AHF notes in its court filing, Tenofovir was first synthesised more than three decades ago in the Czech Republic so it is anything but a new compound. AHF has also named Japan Tobacco Inc. and Emory University among the defendants, claiming they have assisted Gilead in its attempt to extend the patent exclusivity period for medicines containing Tenofovir. The pharma group has manipulated the system by signing a licensing agreement with Japan Tobacco and using a pre-existing patent licensing agreement with Emory University as a way of preventing potential rival entry into the market and stifling competition. AHF has sustained direct damage as a result of Gilead's actions because the organisation has spent millions of dollars on Gilead drugs last year alone. AHF filed a complaint against Gilead with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), alerting the regulator that the company is promoting off-label use of its HIV/AIDS therapy Truvada. In a letter sent to FDA Acting Commissioner Stephen Ostroff, the organisation drew his attention to the fact that Gilead is among the sponsors of a video advertisement that promotes the situational use of Truvada for pre-exposure prophylaxis to prevent HIV infection. In this way, Gilead is giving viewers the wrong impression they can safely and effectively use Truvada on a situational basis although the drug has not been approved by the FDA for use in such way.
