PITTSBURGH, May 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mylan Inc. (Nasdaq: MYL) today commented on the decision by the United States District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia denying Mylan's request for an injunction in its suit against the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), challenging the agency's decision regarding generic drug marketing exclusivity on Celecoxib Capsules, the generic version of Pfizer's Celebrex®.
Mylan continues to believe that FDA seriously erred in its decision regarding eligibility for 180 days of exclusivity on Celecoxib. Mylan will review all of its options, including filing an expedited appeal in the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.
Mylan expects to receive final approval on the 50 mg strength of Celecoxib capsules imminently and has received tentative approval from FDA on all Celecoxib strengths.
