Alvotech Disputes AbbVie’s Recent Allegations
Alvotech strongly disputes AbbVie’s allegations of wrongdoing relating to AVT02, Alvotech’s proposed biosimilar to HUMIRA® (adalimumab). Alvotech will vigorously defend against these allegations.
Notably, AbbVie waited over three years from the purported date of the alleged wrongdoing to file its case, doing so after the ex-AbbVie employee had already left Alvotech and without naming the ex-AbbVie employee as a defendant.
This lack of urgency causes Alvotech to question the motivation behind the case. Indeed, Alvotech believes that the case may be part of a larger AbbVie strategy to delay an emerging competitor from providing patients with a lower-cost alternative to AbbVie’s HUMIRA® high-concentration product.
Alvotech will continue its efforts to increase accessibility to high quality and affordable medicines.
Alvotech is a multinational biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and manufacture of high quality biosimilars for global markets. We are specialists in biotechnology, seeking to be a global leader in the biosimilar space by delivering high quality, cost-competitive products and services to our partners and to patients worldwide.
