Novo-Teva Generic Victoza Settled; Launch Date Rationale Unclear

Novo Nordisk announced it has settled the patent dispute with Teva regarding Teva’s ANDA filing for generic Victoza. Recall, in February 2017, Teva publicly disclosed the generic Victoza filing, and Novo subsequently announced their lawsuit in March 2017. According to the press release, Novo and Teva’s settlement entitles Teva to launch generic Victoza as early as December 22, 2023 (without pediatric exclusivity) unless Novo’s Victoza patents are invalidated or another generic Victoza is launched. Below, FENIX provides thoughts on the settlement with Teva as well as insight into the Victoza pediatric exclusivity extension.
