According to HEALTHPOINT, the suit against Stratus was instituted when the company learned that patients were being prescribed Accuzyme and Panafil, yet Kovia and Ziox were substituted without a determination that the substituted products were pharmaceutically equivalent, therapeutically equivalent or bioequivalent.
HEALTHPOINT's victory shows that Stratus's use of terms and phrases like "generic," "generic alternative," "branded generic," "bioequivalent," or "equivalent" wrongly suggested that Kovia is interchangeable with Accuzyme and that Ziox is interchangeable with Panafil.
The court said that there had been no evidence submitted to show that there is a current drug product that has demonstrated pharmaceutical equivalence, therapeutic equivalence, bioequivalence, or generic equivalence to Accuzyme or Panafil.
Conversely, ACCUZYME is marketed solely as an enzymatic debriding agent for necrotic wounds.
