Eagle Pharmaceuticals Announces Update in Vasopressin Trial; Trial Date Postponed
WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Eagle Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: EGRX) (“Eagle” or the “Company”) today announced that, on January 29, 2021, the United States District Court for the District of Delaware (the “Court”) postponed the February 1, 2021 vasopressin trial between Eagle and Endo Par Innovation Company, LLC, et al. The Court expects to hold a call with the parties today to discuss a new trial date.
Scott Tarriff, Chief Executive Officer of Eagle Pharmaceuticals, stated, “Par’s asserted patent claims require a formulation with a pH of 3.7-3.9. Eagle’s proposed ANDA product specifies a pH outside of that claimed in Par’s patents. We are therefore looking forward to having the trial as soon as possible, especially considering that we expect to have 180 days of exclusivity.”
