Apotex Tests Wyeth Anti-Bacterial Composition Patent, Week of October 28, 2013

Scott Daniels and Cindy Chen | November 4, 2013

Most notable among the filings last week was an inter partes review request submitted by Sughrue’s Kenneth Burchfiel and Travis Ribar, on behalf of Apotex, against Wyeth’s U.S Patent No. 7,879,828 (see inter partes review Request No. (8)). The ‘828 patent claims a tigecycline composition having “improved stability in both solid and solution states.”  According to the ‘828 patent, tigecycline is an antibiotic in the tetracycline family that “has been shown to work where other antibiotics have failed.”  Wyeth sued Sandoz in 2009 for infringement of both the ‘828 patent and Reissue Patent No. 40,188, but the case was later dismissed based on a stipulation of the parties.

Medtronic filed two inter partes review requests against a patent for an aortic valve replacement owned by Troy Norred (see inter partes review Request No. (4)). Dr. Norred sued Medtronic for infringement of the patent earlier this year.  Medtronic also requested inter partes review of a stent patent owned by Valentine Rhodes (see inter partes review Request No. (1)).
