Sanofi sued Mylan in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey alleging the generic manufacturer infringed on 18 of its patents covering an insulin pen.

According to the complaint, Mylan notified the company last month of its NDA for an insulin glargine pre-filled pen and vial-drug that runs afoul of Sanofi’s patents covering the branded insulin glargine products Lantus and Lantus SoloSTAR.

Sanofi said it received an offer of confidential access  from Mylan for the NDA, but its efforts since then to obtain a copy of the NDA were fruitless.

Sanofi requested a discovery order for the NDA and an injunction to block Mylan using the 18 patents.
