Eli Lilly and Company (LLY) Sues Genentech (RHHBY) Seeking to Invalidate Cabilly Patents


3/5/2013 7:57:26 AM

Eli Lilly & Co. sued Roche Holding AG (ROG)’s Genentech unit, asking a court to invalidate patents used to make treatments for cancer and autoimmune diseases and order that its Erbitux drug doesn’t infringe the patent.
