31 March 22 | Fresenius Kabi announced that it has bought a majority stake (55%) in mAbxience, a company specialising in biosimilars, for an upfront EUR 495 million plus milestone payments, and Ivenix, which has a leading infusion therapy platform, for an upfront US$ 240 million plus milestone payments.  These transactions are expected to close in mid-2022.

4 Apr 22 | Intas announced that it has signed an exclusive license and supply agreement with Axantia, a Middle Eastern pharmaceutical company, for the commercialisation of ranibizumab (biosimilar Lucentis®) in territories including Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Iraq and Lebanon.

6 Apr 22 | Alvotech announced that it has resolved its patent disputes with AbbVie in Europe and selected markets elsewhere relating to Alvotech’s citrate free, high concentration adalimumab (AVT02, biosimilar to Humira®).  This follows the resolution of the US litigation between AbbVie and Alvotech last month and paves the way for Stada to commercialise adalimumab in Europe under the Hukyndra® brand name.  AbbVie has granted Alvotech a non-exclusive royalty bearing license to AbbVie’s Humira® patents in Europe and selected markets elsewhere.
