A court in Dusseldorf ruled that Praluent infringes a patent for Amgen's better-selling PCSK9 inhibitor Repatha, saying that Sanofi and Regeneron must stop selling their biologic in Germany. It's unclear whether there will be any readthrough to ongoing patent disputes in other countries.
ODYSSEY Outcomes data added to US label for Praluent; update includes claim for reduced cardiovascular incident risk and trial data indicating an all-cause mortality benefit.
The move follows a similar price cut for Amgen's competing PCSK9 inhibitor Repatha and comes as PBMs, including UnitedHealth Group's OptumRx, are looking for ways to maintain the drug rebate status quo.
