Abstract

This, the third part of a three-part article, analyses the litigation in the case of Warner-Lambert Co LLC v Actavis Group PTC EHF (Civ Div) on: the scope of the claimant's Swiss-form claim for the use of the otherwise off-label drug pregabalin for the treatment of pain; and whether the manufacturer of a generic version of pregabalin, marketed for its off-label uses, was liable for infringement where evidence showed it was being prescribed as a painkiller.
