JERUSALEM--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (NYSE: TEVA) announced that the District Court of the Hague (Netherlands) has issued a favorable ruling in a patent revocation action brought by Mylan B.V., a subsidiary of Mylan Laboratories Inc., seeking a court judgment that Teva’s European Patent (NL) 762,888 expiring May 2015 for its relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) product, COPAXONE® (glatiramer acetate injection) is invalid. The District Court of the Hague rejected each one of the grounds of invalidity Mylan had raised against the claims of Teva’s ‘888 patent. The favorable ruling follows a similar outcome in the English Court of Appeal in July 2013 which also affirmed that the claims of Teva’s patent are valid.
