Pfizer won its patent infringement case of Lyrica against ten Korean generic drugmakers, including CJ, Pfizer Korea said Wednesday.

The Korea Intellectual Property Tribunal recently sided with Pfizer Korea, ruling that the patent on Lyrica’s use for neuropathy is still valid.

The latest ruling is likely to affect the preliminary injunction filed by Pfizer Korea against generic drugmakers who have promoted their generic version as the treatment of neuropathy. The ruling about the preliminary injunction hasn’t come yet.

If Pfizer also win the case, it may file a lawsuit against CJ to restore its financial damage caused by CJ’s A-Gabalin.

Lee Dong Su, President of Pfzier Korea said, “We respect the Tribunal’s ruling which validated the patents on Lyrica. We will keep protecting out patent thoroughly.”
