Manitoba (I-Newswire) January 26, 2013 - The Supreme Court of Canada unanimously overturned a key drug Patent held by Pfizer Canada Inc. for the widely known erectile dysfunction (ED) medication, sildenafil. The case brought forward by TEVA Canada challenged Pfizer's patent on the grounds that it did not disclose the full details of the active component of sildenafil citrate, in its original patent filing.
