Lovenox/Enoxaparin Antitrust Settlement

Settlement Structure: Claims Made

Active: Open

Case Summary:

Momenta Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Sandoz, Inc. are settling an antitrust class action alleging that they conspired to keep the prices of Lovenox and its generic enoxaparin higher than they should have been by manipulating the generic approvals process. While Momenta did not create the drug, the complaint says the companies manipulated the process to bring testing processes for generics within the scope of Momenta’s patents. Thus it allegedly wanted to require other companies to use or infringe on its patented processes, in order to keep other drug makers from selling it.
