Apotex, along with generic pharmaceutical companies Torrent Pharmaceuticals and Mylan Pharmaceuticals, petitioned the PTAB to invalidate the '283 patent related to oral formulations for the administration of the multiple sclerosis drug fingolimod, marketed by Novartis as Gilenya®. As a result, all claims of the '283 patent were found invalid by PTAB.
