U.S. District Court Finds Patents for Shire's Vyvanse ADHD Treatment were Infringed, Valid

Shire announced that judge of the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey granted company's summary judgment motion in a patent-infringement lawsuit, holding that certain claims of the patents protecting its Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine dimesylate) Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder treatment were both infringed and valid. The court's summary judgment ruling included 18 patent claims from four of the Food and Drug Administration Orange Book-listed patents for Vyvanse, which cover Vyvanse's active ingredient--the lisdexamfetamine dimesylate compound--and a method of using lisdexamfetamine dimesylate for the treatment of ADHD. The ruling prevents the five pharmaceutical manufacturers who had filed Abbreviated New Drug Applications from launching generic versions of Vyvanse until the earlier of either a successful appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, or the expiration of these patents in 2023. To appeal successfully, the ANDA defendants would have to overturn the court's rulings for each of the 18 patent claims. The court's rulings denied API supplier Johnson Matthey's motion to dismiss certain indirect infringement claims, dismissed shire's willful-infringement claims, granted defendants' motion concerning noninfringement of certain method of use claims, and denied defendants' two invalidity motions.
