Norvasc trial begins in WD Pa

The trial on Pfizer's Norvasc began on Nov. 28 in the Western District in Pennsylvania (WD Pa) under Judge Terrence McVerry and is expected to last about a week.

The Pfizer '909 patent covering Norvasc (Amlodipine Besylate, used for treating high blood pressure) expires in March, 2007 but the company gained a six-month extension for conducting pediatric studies.

Mylan has NOT started to sell its generic; Mylan could face heavy damages if it started selling its product and then lost the patent trial.
