Views on Delhi High Court's ruling in Novartis patent dispute:

“The ruling is totally in line with existing laws, rules and judicial precedents. For example, the Indian patents act provides provisions for revocation of patent rights in case such rights are against public interest”.

Additional Information:

Onbrez (Indacaterol) is an ultra-long-acting beta-adrenoceptor agonist developed by Novartis, which was approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) under the trade name Onbrez Breezhaler, and by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), under the trade name Arcapta Neohaler.

Novartis has filed five (5) patents in India for protecting Onbrez

(i) IN222346 titled “BETA 2-ADRENOCEPTOR AGONISTS”

(ii) IN214320 titled “A PHARMACEUTICAL COMPOSITION FOR TREATMENT OF INFLAMMATORY AND OBSTRUCTIVE AIRWAYS DISEASES”

(iii) IN230049 titled “A PROCESS FOR THE PREPARATION OF 5-(HALOACETYL)-8-(SUBSTITUTED OXY)-(1H)-QUINOLIN-2-ONES”

(iv) IN210047 titled “PROCESS FOR PREPARING 2-AMINOINDAN DERIVATIVES”

(v) IN230312 titled “A PROCESS FOR PREPARING 5-[(R)-2-(5,6-DIETHYL-INDAN-2-YLAMINO)-1-HYDROXY-ETHYL]-8-HYDROXY-(1H)-QUINOLIN-2-ONE SALTS”

In January 2015, Delhi High Court barred Cipla from making or selling a cheaper copy of Onbrez, citing infringement of patents held by Novartis.
