REYKJAVIK, Iceland-Friday 26 March 2021 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Alvotech strongly disputes AbbVie’s allegations of wrongdoing relating to AVT02, Alvotech’s proposed biosimilar to HUMIRA® (adalimumab). Alvotech will vigorously defend against these allegations.

Notably, AbbVie waited over three years from the purported date of the alleged wrongdoing to file its case, doing so after the ex-AbbVie employee had already left Alvotech and without naming the ex-AbbVie employee as a defendant.

This lack of urgency causes Alvotech to question the motivation behind the case. Indeed, Alvotech believes that the case may be part of a larger AbbVie strategy to delay an emerging competitor from providing patients with a lower-cost alternative to AbbVie’s HUMIRA® high-concentration product.

Alvotech will continue its efforts to increase accessibility to high quality and affordable medicines.

WASHINGTON-Thursday 25 March 2021 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Xlear has filed a Pre-Emergency Use Authorization (Pre-EUA) Request with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) seeking approval to make claims that the nasal spray is approved for use in preventing SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) transmission and infection. The Pre-EUA is a first step in seeking formal authorization of Xlear Nasal Spray as tool to help in combatting COVID-19.

Xlear previously filed a pre-EUA seeking approval for use of the nasal spray as a medical device in combatting COVID-19. However, because the FDA determined that Xlear “works against the virus,” the FDA told Xlear it would need to be considered as a drug or combination product EUA.

“Seeing that the FDA says Xlear works against the virus, we have decided to seek EUA approval as a drug,” said Nathan Jones, Xlear’s CEO.

Xlear’s Pre-EUA Request is based on recent studies showing the nas ... Read more »
