The Knowledge Group Has Scheduled a Live Webcast on Resolving Patent Dispute Under BPCIA

New York, NY, January 20, 2017 --( The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: Resolving Patent Dispute Under BPCIA: Latest Developments and Strategies in 2017. This two-hour event is scheduled on February 14, 2017 at 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM ET.

Event Synopsis:
Since its enactment as a component of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act on March 23, 2010, the Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act (collectively known as BPCIA) has continually created an abbreviated approval pathway for producers of biological products. Primarily, the act caters for products which are “biosimilar” to or “interchangeable” with FDA-licensed biological products.

One of the most significant cases on BPCIA was the recently culminated Amgen-Sandoz Fight, which created a buzz on the industry and questioned how mandatory the “Patent Dance” is.

In a two-hour live Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss the significant and latest issues surrounding the BPCIA. Aside from the updates and recent developments, they will further discuss 2017 strategies which will be helpful for both innovators and biosimilar applicants.

Key issues that will be covered in this course are:

Supreme Court to hear the Amgen-Sandoz Fight

Case Background
The Neupogen® // Zarxio™ Biosimilar Dispute
Questions the Supreme Court will address:

Is Patent Dance mandatory?
Is 180-day notice of commercial marketing mandatory? When must it be given?
