    • Eli Lilly (NYSE:LLY) says a U.S. federal court ruled that generic products proposed by a unit of Teva Pharmaceutical (NYSE:TEVA) would infringe a U.S. patent for LLY’s blockbuster cancer drug Alimta.
    • The patent, which covers the administration of Alimta to patients with a vitamin regimen, provides intellectual property protection until May 2022, potentially preserving U.S. market exclusivity for Alimta until then, rather than allowing generic competition in 2017 when a separate patent expires.
    • Teva had challenged a March 2014 ruling that upheld the validity of the vitamin regimen patent.
