Lilly sues to stop generic Strattera

September 24, 2007
Indianapolis-based Eli Lilly and Co. is suing Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. of India to stop Sun from selling a generic version of its hyper-disorder drug Strattera.

Lilly, which filed the suit in Detroit on Sept. 20, said it would be "irreparably harmed" if the generic wasn't stopped, according to Bloomberg.

Sun's application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration says Lilly's patent is invalid, unenforceable or uninfringed.

Strattera treats attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and generated $282 million in sales in the first half of this year for Lilly.
