In a complaint filed Aug. 15, 2017 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina, United Therapeutics alleged that the defendants have breached a research grant agreement in failing to aid in its defense of its patents for the pulmonary hypertension drug TYVASO and that the defendants are seeking additional monies already paid per terms of the agreement. Defendants in the case, are breaching the terms of the agreement and the assignment by asserting some ownership interest in the patents and by failing to cooperate with UTC in connection with UTC's defense of the patents. United Therapeutics states in its complaint that it is seeking damages as well as a court order for the defendants to perform obligations included in the agreement and a judgment that the defendants transferred all patent rights to the company.
