    • Flamel Technologies (FLML -25%) drops on a 6x surge in volume in apparent response a favorable ruling from the USPTO for Jazz Pharmaceuticals (JAZZ +3.1%) and against the petitions from Par Pharmaceuticals, Roxane Labs and Amneal Pharmaceuticals. The decision reaffirmed the validity of four patents related to Xyrem (#'s 7,895,059, 8,457,988, 7,668,730, 8,589,182).
    • In October, Canaccord Genuity analyst John Newman published a research report reiterating his Buy recommendation on Jazz Pharmaceuticals (JAZZ +3.8%) with a $163 price target based on his view that Flamel's NDA for its once-daily version of Xyrem (sodium oxybate), to be filed under the 505(NYSE:B)(2) paragraph IV pathway, will reference Jazz's orange book-listed patents. This will trigger a lawsuit and and an automatic 30-month stay of approval.
    • The delay will give Jazz more time to develop its once-daily version, JZP-386, which should enter Phase 2 this year.
