Microbix Biosystems Inc. Sues Novartis AG for Virusmax Patent Infringement in Europe

Microbix Biosystems Inc. announced that it has sued Novartis AG (NVS) for alleged infringement of its Virusmax patent in Europe. Microbix said it commenced a new patent litigation in the Court of Dusseldorf, Germany against Novartis Vaccines and Diagnostics. The company had earlier filed a complaint against Novartis in the Eastern District of Texas on January 6, 2014, for alleged infringement of the Virusmax patent in the U.S. Microbix' Virusmax technology is used for increasing virus yields in egg-based vaccine manufacture. The patent application was first published internationally in 2004 when the global market for influenza vaccine was $1.6 billion. At that time, there was growing concern about limited global vaccine manufacturing capacity and supply, especially in light of a potential influenza pandemic. According to Microbix, an independent study published in the Journal of Vaccine in 2006 reported that the application of Virusmax technology led to a significant increase in flu virus production in eggs. These trials used methods comparable to those used in seasonal influenza vaccine manufacture. Microbix noted that it has also demonstrated substantial yield increases over conventional manufacturing processes for several influenza vaccine strains using its technology. The company was granted patents for the Virusmax technology in twenty-one countries between 2006 and 2011. Microbix said it successfully defended its European Virusmax patent against Novartis at the European Patent Office in January 2014. Following a hearing in Munich, the European Patent Office rendered a decision in favor of Microbix and confirmed that the Virusmax technology is a novel, useful and non-obvious invention. However, Novartis has now appealed that decision.

Novartis AG's Leukemia Treatment CTL019 Gets FDA Breakthrough Therapy Status

Novartis AG announced that the United States Food and Drug Administration has granted breakthrough therapy status to CTL019, an investigational chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) therapy for the treatment of pediatric and adult patients with relapsed/refractory acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The breakthrough therapy filing was submitted by the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School of Medicine which has an exclusive global agreement with Novartis to research, develop and commercialize personalized CAR T cell therapies for the treatment of cancers. The FDA Breakthrough Therapy designation is intended to expedite the development and review of new medicines that treat serious or life-threatening conditions if the therapy has demonstrated substantial improvement over an available therapy on at least one clinically significant endpoint.
