Alvotech, Mylan & others file amicus curiae briefs in support of Teva’s skinny label case

Aug 12, 2022

Alvotech, Mylan, the Association for Accessible Medicines, and 42 professors of law, economics, business and medicine filed amicus curiae briefs in the US Supreme Court in support of Teva’s petition for a writ of certiorari.  Teva is seeking review of the controversial divided panel of the Court of Appeal for the Federal Circuit decision in August 2021 in which Teva was found to have induced infringement of a narrow GSK method of treatment (MOT) patent relating to the use of Coreg® (carvedilol) to treat congestive heart failure, despite Teva’s CHF indication carve out.  Teva and other companies have argued that this decision will threaten the future of ‘skinny-label’ for small molecules and large molecules.
