What is this settlement about?
The settlement alleges that Gilead violated federal antitrust laws by engaging in unlawful conduct to delay competition of generic versions of the HIV medications Atripla and Truvada. The settlement alleges that Gilead entered into a “reverse payment” settlement with Teva Pharmaceuticals, through which it paid Teva to delay entry of its generic versions of Atripla and Truvada. The settlement also alleges that this arrangement resulted in direct purchasers of Atripla, Truvada, and their generic equivalents paying overcharges.
What is a “reverse payment” settlement?
A reverse payment settlement, also known as a “pay-for-delay” settlement, refers to a legal agreement reached between a brand-name drug manufacturer and a generic drug manufacturer. In a reverse payment settlement, the brand-name pharmaceutical company makes financial or other types of valuable concessions to the generic drug manufacturer. In exchange, the generic manufacturer agrees to delay the entry of its generic version of a drug into the market for a specified period, typically until the brand-name drug’s patent exclusivity expires.
Who is qualified in the Settlement?
Any person or entity in the United States or its territories that purchased Atripla, Truvada, or their generic equivalents directly from a brand or generic manufacturer of those drugs at any time from February 1, 2018, until September 27, 2022.
