Abstract The previous year saw an increase in biosimilar filings in the U.S., including the recent suit filed by AbbVie in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware against Boehringer Ingelheim regarding Boehringer Ingelheim’s adalimumab product, Cyltezo®, a proposed biosimilar to AbbVie’s Humira®. The complaint alleges infringement of 8 patents in the initial phase of litigation, as Boehringer Ingelheim was able to cap the scope of litigation by complying with the procedures of the Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act of 2009 (BPCIA). This case reflects the benefits of complying with the BPCIA's patent dispute resolution procedure, also known as patent dance. In this LIVE webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders will discuss the latest legal and regulatory updates that are continuously changing the biosimilar landscape. They will review the on-goings of the AbbVie v. Boehringer Ingelheim litigation and give insights on the benefits and risks of engaging in the BPCIA's patent dance. Speakers will also provide considerations in adopting appropriate litigation strategies. Key issues that will be covered in this course are: • Biosimilar Litigation Landscape Post Sandoz v. Amgen • Complying with BPCIA: AbbVie v. Boehringer Ingelheim • The Benefits and Risks of Patent Dance • Recent Legal and Regulatory Updates • Strategic Considerations for Biosimilar Litigation • Significant Trends and Legal Updates About The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series The Knowledge Group was established with the mission to produce unbiased, objective, and educational live webinars that examine industry trends and regulatory changes from a variety of different perspectives.
