Korlym® faces another potential generic from Sun Pharma

Another generic has filed an ANDA with the FDA for a license to distribute a generic version of Korlym®.  Teva is no longer the only company seeking to sell generic Korlym®, which therefore increases the likelihood that Corcept Therapeutics ($CORT) will face a generic competitor for its main drug at some point in the future.

Did Corcept and Teva tell the Court they are about to settle the Korlym patent dispute?

On January 10, counsel for Corcept ($CORT) filed a letter with the Court in the pending patent litigation against Teva ($TEVA) over its proposed generic for Korlym®.  (See Dkt. 49).  Within that letter, Corcept requested an extension of one week to respond to Teva’s Answer to the Amended Complaint.  Corcept’s letter further stated that the “parties are currently discussing a potential agreement that would eliminate the need for Corcept to respond to Teva’s Answer . . . .”  Is that potential “agreement” a resolution to the litigation?

Will Corcept Therapeutics’s new patent for Korlym® help against Teva’s generic?

On April 17, 2018, a new patent issued to Corcept Therapeutics ($CORT) that covers Korlym®.  The patent is U.S. Patent No. 9,943,526 pursuant to U.S. Patent Application No. 15/133,791.  The ‘526 patent has already been added to the Orange Book.  Korlym® was already protected by two patents listed in the Orange Book, and Corcept recently commenced a Hatch-Waxman litigation against Teva asserting these two patents.  How effective is the new ‘526 patent at keeping Teva at bay?

Can Corcept Therapeutics fend off Teva's generic for Korlym®?

Corcept Therapeutics recently received a Paragraph IV notice letter from Teva for its drug, Korlym®.  The market’s reaction crushed the stock, sending it from approximately $23 to roughly $17 within a day.  Corcept Therapeutics has essentially one drug, Korlym® (mifepristone).  But whether Teva will enter with a generic version of Korlym® any time soon depends directly on the patents that Corcept has in its arsenal.  What are those patents?  Is the market’s reaction justified?  Or is this a buying opportunity?
