U.S. district court rules for Mylan in MS drug patent battle with Biogen

June 18 (Reuters) - A U.S. district court on Thursday ruled in favor of generic drugmaker Mylan NV in a patent dispute over Biogen Inc’s blockbuster multiple sclerosis drug Tecfidera, sending the drugmaker’s shares down 7%.

The ruling comes months after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ruled that a bioequivalent version of Tecfidera made by Banner Life Sciences LLC does not infringe a Biogen patent that was set to expire in June.
