Medicines Co. Settles Angiomax Patent Litigations With App Pharma - Quick Facts

The Medicines Co. (MDCO) said it has settled the lawsuits filed by MDCO in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware regarding the Abbreviated New Drug Application or ANDA filed by APP Pharmaceuticals LLC for Angiomax' generic version. Further, the settlement includes APP's deal to dismiss its appeal of the August 2010 federal district court decision holding that MDCO's application for Hatch Waxman patent term extension of the Angiomax composition of matter patent, U.S. Patent No. 5,196,404, was timely filed.

Upon dismissal of the appeal, all pending litigation relating to the Angiomax composition of matter patent would have been resolved.

As part of the settlement, APP admits that the two patents asserted in the lawsuits related to APP's ANDA, U.S. Patent No. 7,582,727 and U.S. Patent No. 7,598,343, are valid and enforceable against, and would be infringed by, APP's proposed generic bivalirudin product. These patents are listed in the Orange Book and expire on July 27, 2028.
