Plaintiffs filed a stipulation of dismissal with prejudice regarding plaintiffs’ claims against Chugai with the Court on September 13, 2018, and the Court issued an Order Dismissing Chugai from this lawsuit on September 19, 2018 (local time). The lawsuit against Genentech remains pending in the U.S.

Baxalta alleges that HEMLIBRA® (US generic name: emicizumab-kxwh), a drug for the treatment of hemophilia A developed by Chugai, for people with hemophilia A, infringes US Patent Number 7,033,590. Thus, Baxalta filed a lawsuit against Chugai and Genentech requesting relief including an injunction enjoining manufacturing, using, offering to sell, or selling HEMLIBRA within the US, or importing HEMLIBRA into the US. Chugai filed its motion to dismiss Baxalta’s complaint for lack of personal jurisdiction. Baxalta filed a stipulation dismissing its claims against Chugai with prejudice, and the Court issued an order adopting the proposed dismissal of Chugai from this lawsuit.
