    Event Synopsis:
    The Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act (BPCIA) encourages competition and innovation in the biologics market by providing an abridged pathway for the approval of a biosimilar license application along with a twelve-year market exclusivity. The BPCIA also determines patent infringement disputes by setting out a process and addresses potential litigation following a license application. To streamline biosimilar litigation, the BPCIA implements patent statutes that introduce a new artificial patent infringement act, requires information exchange cycles, envisions two waves of litigation, and restricts patent declaratory judgment actions under certain conditions.

    Biosimilar litigation is expected to rise as the number of drug manufacturers considering the addition of biosimilars to their drug product portfolios, continues to grow. To dodge costly pitfalls and irreversible mistakes, a complete understanding of the BPCIA litigation pathway should be considered.

    The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of key thought leaders and professionals to help the audience better comprehend the BPCIA Litigation landscape amidst the increasing Biosimilar Disputes. This panel will also present an in-depth analysis and understanding on the current issues surrounding biosimilar litigation and will provide the audience with practical strategies in bringing out the best in these lawsuits in a rapidly evolving legal climate.

    Key topics include:
    • An Overview of the BPCIA
    • The BPCIA Litigation Pathway
    • Notable Cases
    • Practical Litigation Strategies
    • Trends, Developments and Updates
