Judge wipes out Biogen's Tecfidera patent protections in suit against Mylan

Fiercepharma | June 18, 2020

In the high-stakes patent fight between Biogen and Mylan over Tecfidera’s main remaining patent, Mylan has scored a major win in federal court. U.S. District Judge Irene Keeley said Mylan “demonstrated by clear and convincing evidence” that certain claims of Biogen’s '514 patent are invalid for “lack of written description.” The decision threatens Biogen’s bestselling medicine with early generics; Tecfidera, a multiple sclerosis drug, generated $3.3 billion in the U.S. last year. The company's '514 patent is set to expire in 2028, meaning the decision, if upheld, could wipe out years of monopoly sales. Biogen’s shares were down about 6% on Thursday morning on the news. A spokesman said the company is disappointed with the decision and will appeal.

SciNeuro Pharmaceuticals and Mabylon AG to Collaborate on Development of Novel Therapeutics for Neurological Diseases

SciNeuro Pharmaceuticals | October 26, 2021

SciNeuro Pharmaceuticals a leader in the discovery and development of innovative therapeutics for the treatment of neurological diseases, and Mabylon AG, a leader in the discovery and characterization of human-derived antibodies against therapeutic targets, today announced the establishment of a multi-program collaboration and license agreement. Under the collaboration, MabSciNeuro and Mabylon will collaborate on multiple targets that encompass serious neurological diseases including TAR DNA binding protein-43 (TDP-43) and Apolipoprotein E (APOE) for neurodegenerative diseases for which there are currently no effective treatments. Both TDP-43 and APOE have human genetic evidence causal to ALS and Alzheimer’s disease. SciNeuro will have rights to develop and commercialize resulting product(s) within Greater China, and an option to expand such rights to become worldwide. “We are excited to be collaborating with Mabylon, a leading biotech company with deep expertise and capabilities for identification and characterization of native human antibodies with therapeutic potential. Their platform enables a deeper exploration of human immunology for therapeutic discovery Native human antibody-based approaches have proven successful for the treatment of infectious diseases including COVID-19. Discovery of auto-antibodies to treat other diseases has been more challenging, due in part to the availability of sufficiently large and high-quality sample collections. By working with companies such as Mabylon, possessing both proprietary antibody screening and cloning technology coupled with large, re-contactable patient sera repositories, we are in a strong position to test the hypothesis and exploit human immune responses for novel and differentiated therapeutic candidates for CNS diseases.” Dr. Min Li, Founder and CEO, SciNeuro Pharmaceuticals “Collaborating with SciNeuro and its R&D team allows full exploitation of Mabylon’s human antibody platform by seamlessly bringing our discovery research products forward to pivotal proof of concept. We are thrilled about this collaboration, which combines innovation in drug discovery with great expertise in drug development in the neurological disease area,” added Dr. Alcide Barberis, CEO, Mabylon. About Mabylon AG Mabylon AG is a leading Swiss biotechnology company harnessing the therapeutic potential of naturally occurring human antibodies to treat neurodegenerative diseases and allergies. Access to over 100,000 patients per year allows the discovery of extremely rare target-specific human antibodies, additionally providing information about the target’s human biology and safety profile.. About SciNeuro Pharmaceuticals SciNeuro Pharmaceuticals is a leading neuromedicine company focused on elevating the standard of care for patients suffering from neurological diseases. With R&D capabilities located in the major life sciences hubs of Shanghai, China and Rockville, Maryland, SciNeuro is establishing a robust CNS product pipeline through internal innoylon and SciNeuro will work together to discover and develop human auto-antibodies against targets of mutual interest with a goal to develop differentiated biologic therapeutics to treat neurological diseases.
