Carol Hitchman and Rosamaria Longo represented Pharmascience Inc. successfully in the Federal Court of Appeal.

05/29/2014

In Pharmascience Inc. v. AstraZeneca Canada Inc. et al., 2014 FCA 133, the court overturned the trial decision prohibiting Pharmascience from obtaining marketing approval for its esomeprazole capsules.  The court found that it was not enough to simply put a reference to a study in a patent to demonstrate utility.  After reconsidering the evidence, the court concluded that AstraZeneca had not satisfied its onus in the proceeding to show that Pharmascience’s arguments as to the lack of utility of the claimed invention were not justified.
