Bayer, the German pharmaceutical company, has filed a U.S. lawsuit against Teva for false advertising and patent infringement.
Bayer claims that Teva had false claims on the Gianvi product. The product competes with Bayer’s oral contraceptive, YAZ, but according to Bayer, Teva’s product does not contain the substance that helps to stabilize the product and keeps its shelf life.
The legal process began in early June but Teva continues to distribute the product in the United States through July 2011.
