This patent-based section 337 investigation was instituted by the Commission based on a complaint filed by Inamed Corporation (“Inamed”) of Santa Barbara, California. 69 FR 35676 (June 25, 2004). The complainant alleged violations of section 337 in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain injectable implant compositions by reason of infringement of claims 1, 2, 7, 12, 18, 20, 25, 26 and 30-34 of U.S. Patent No. 4,803,075. The complaint, as amended, named Q-Med Aktiebolag of Uppsala Sweden, Medicis Aesthetics, Inc., of Scottsdale, Arizona, and McKesson Corporation, McKesson Health Solutions of Arizona, Inc., and McKesson Supply Solutions, all of San Francisco, California, as respondents.
