One of the antitrust issues expected to surge the drug industry this 2016 is the legal developments concerning the practice of product-hopping or “forced switching.” The U.S. government is getting critical in this tactic which thwarts generic competition. Recent lawsuits prove the government’s increased scrutiny of product-hopping.
It is of paramount importance that in introducing a new drug formulation, branded drug firms must still consider the risk of a product-hopping lawsuit, which will eventually attract certain enforcement agencies.
In this two-hour live Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders will help drug companies understand the fundamental aspects of Product-Hopping in the Pharmaceutical Industry. They will provide an in-depth discussion of this significant topic. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing and implementing an effective strategy for the introduction of a new drug formulation.
Key topics include:
- Product-Hopping – Overview
- Significant Lawsuits:
- New York v. Actavis
- Mylan v. Warner-Chilcott
- Risk Mitigation Strategies
- Regulatory Forecasts
- Best Practices
