Abstract :

On March 6, 2013, Janssen Biotech, Inc. and New York University filed suit against Cell-trion Healthcare Co., LTD, Cell-trion, Inc, and Hospira in the Federal District of Massachusetts. Janssen filed the suit as an attempt to assert its intellectual property rights for the drug Remicade├?┬« (Infliximab). The patents in dispute are US Patent No. 6,284,471, which covers the infliximab cA2 monoclonal antibody; US Patent No. 7,223,396, which covers novel uses of infliximab to treat disease; and US Patent No. 5,807,715, which covers methods of producing functional antibodies that are capable of specifically binding antigens. Cell-trion submitted a Biologic License Application in August of 2014, which the FDA accepted for review in October of 2014. However, Cell-trion indicated that they would begin commercial marketing of their proposed biosimilar product as early as August 5, 2015. The question at hand is was Cell-trion├ó┬?┬?s notice of commercial marketing premature, and how does a biosimilar company properly serve notice of commercial marketing?
