BREAKING NEWS–Federal Circuit Denies Amgen’s Emergency Motion for a Temporary Injunction in Amgen v. Sandoz

The Federal Circuit has denied Amgen’s Emergency motion for a temporary injunction pending en banc consideration and review in Amgen v. Sandoz.  Per the Federal Circuit’s July 21st decision, Sandoz was enjoined from marketing its biosimilar filgrastim product, Zarxio, until 180 days from the date it received FDA approval for its product.  That original injunction ends today, September 2.
