Class Action Alleges Novartis Gleevec Patent Infringement Suit a Sham

A class-action lawsuit filed against Novartis alleges that the pharma company’s patent infringement suit against Sun Pharma was a sham, and seeks a permanent injunction to prevent Novartis or Sun from enforcing the terms of a settlement agreement that, barring relief, will delay the launch of generic Gleevec for months. According to Hagens Berman, the suit marks the first time purchasers of prescription drugs have sought injunctive relief to try to prevent antitrust overcharges or damages stemming from delayed launch of generic drugs. The lawsuit, filed June 22, 2015 in the U.S. District Court for the district of Massachusetts, seeks to prevent Novartis’ unlawful delay of generic Gleevec (imatinib mesylate), an FDA-approved prescription drug that radically improves the lives of the thousands of patients suffering chronic myeloid leukemia, a cancer of the blood and bone marrow. The drug’s compound patent expires on July 4, 2015, but Novartis unlawfully barred generic maker Sun Pharma from releasing its generic version of Gleevec for at least an additional seven months. Two generic versions of the drug have already been tentatively approved by the FDA. The suit names two end payers as plaintiffs and has been filed on behalf of a class of all purchasers of Gleevec.

Novartis Announces Long-Term Safety and Efficacy Results from the Pivotal Phase III Response Study Evaluating Jakavi

Novartis announced long-term safety and efficacy results from the pivotal Phase III RESPONSE study evaluating Jakavi (ruxolitinib) for the treatment of patients with polycythemia vera (PV) who are resistant to or intolerant of hydroxyurea. A preplanned analysis of the study at 18 months demonstrated that 80% of patients with inadequately controlled PV treated with Jakavi experienced a durable response of sustaining hematocrit less than 45% without the use of phlebotomy and reducing spleen size, two key measures of disease control, for at least one year. Findings were presented at the 20th Congress of the European Hematology Association (EHA) in Vienna, Austria. PV is a rare and incurable blood cancer associated with an overproduction of blood cells that can cause serious cardiovascular complications, such as blood clots, stroke and heart attack. Approximately 25% of patients with PV develop resistance (inadequate response) to or intolerance of hydroxyurea and are considered to have inadequately controlled disease[2]. This is typically defined as hematocrit levels greater than 45%, elevated white blood cell count and/or platelet count, and may be accompanied by debilitating symptoms and/or an enlarged spleen. In the Phase III study, 83% of patients with PV randomized to Jakavi were still receiving treatment at 18 months (median exposure of 111 weeks) compared to 0 patients on the best available treatment arm. Results also show that Jakavi-treated patients who achieved hematocrit control without phlebotomy had an 89% probability of maintaining their response for 18 months from the time of their initial response and all patients who had an initial spleen response maintained their reduction in spleen size. Of the patients on the Jakavi arm at week 32, 90% of patients did not have a phlebotomy between weeks 32 and 80. In addition, patients treated with Jakavi who achieved complete hematologic remission at week 32 had a 69% probability of maintaining their response for at least 18 months from the time of their initial response. A separate analysis of the study at 18 months demonstrated treatment with Jakavi also led to sustained control of white blood cell and platelet levels, important PV hematologic parameters, with the large reductions for patients with the most elevated values at baseline.
