 3/17/17 - Breckenridge Pharmaceutical, Inc. Announces Launch of Desvenlafaxine XR Tablets generic for Pristiq

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Drug Week - Breckenridge Pharmaceutical, Inc. announced the launch of desvenlafaxine succinate extended-release tablets 50mg and 100mg, a generic version of Pristiq by Pfizer Inc. The ANDA was filed as a Paragraph IV on the first-to-file date and will share 180-day exclusivity with other ANDA first filers. Alembic Pharmaceuticals Limited is the manufacturer of the ANDA, which will be marketed exclusively by Breckenridge. The Paragraph IV litigation was settled on terms that are confidential.

Desvenlafaxine is a prescription drug that is indicated for the treatment of major depressive disorder, and is in a class of medications called selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs). Pristiq generated sales of $883 million, based on December, 2016 IMS Health Sales Data.

Breckenridge's litigation involving desvenlafaxine succinate extended-release tablets 50mg and 100mg highlights its aggressive Paragraph IV strategy. Breckenridge currently has twenty-seven (27) ANDAs filed and pending with FDA that contain Paragraph IV patent challenges, and intends to continue that trend in the next several years, focusing on niche and first-to-file Paragraph IV opportunities with certain barriers to entry.
