The Commission instituted this investigation on March 23, 2011, based on a complaint filed by Eli Lilly and Company (“Lilly”). 76 FR 16445. The complaint alleges violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1337) based upon the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain gemcitabine and products containing same by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent No. 5,606,048. The complaint named Hospira, Inc. (“Hospira”); Intas Pharmaceuticals Ltd. (“Intas”); ChemWerth, Inc. (“ChemWerth”); and Jiangsu Hansoh Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. (“Hansoh”) as respondents.

On August 9, 2011, Lilly, Hospira, and Intas filed a joint motion to terminate the investigation in its entirety under Commission Rule 210.21. On August 11, 2011, the Commission investigative attorney filed a response supporting the motion. On August 15, 2011, respondents ChemWerth and Hansoh filed a response supporting termination, but for different reasons than those advanced by Lilly, Hospira, and Intas.
