F Hoffmann-La Roche and Glenmark Pharmaceuticals Settle Patent Litigation on Cancer Therapy

F Hoffmann-La Roche and Glenmark Pharmaceuticals have settled a patent litigation on lung cancer therapy erlotinib hydrochloride out of court. Roche received the patent in India for erlotinib hydrochloride, which is sold under the brand name 'Tarceva', on February 23, 2007. But the drug maker got engaged in patent disputes with Cipla over Tarceva. Glenmark and Roche ensured that they had reached an agreement over existing patent disputes related to the anti-cancer drug Erlotinib Hydrochloride, according to a joint statement by the two companies. As part of the contract, the companies had ceased all significant patent litigation on that product and Glenmark had approved the patent rights of the Swiss company. Tarceva is developed and commercialized by Astellas Pharma US in collaboration with Genetech, Chugai and Roche in the United States, Japan and rest of the world, respectively.
