WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 15, 2023) – The Association for Accessible Medicines Interim CEO, David Gaugh, today released the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to decline hearing the GSK v. Teva case:
"AAM is disappointed that the U.S. Supreme Court denied certiorari in the GSK v. Teva case. AAM will continue to support the Hatch-Waxman framework which expressly contemplates prompt generic drug availability through patent carve-outs, also known as skinny labeling."
Director of Communications, AAM
AAM is driven by the belief that access to safe, quality, effective medicine has a tremendous impact on a person’s life and the world around them. Generic and biosimilar medicines improve people’s lives, improving society and the economy in turn. AAM represents the manufacturers and distributors of finished generic pharmaceuticals and biosimilars, manufacturers and distributors of bulk pharmaceutical chemicals, and suppliers of other goods and services to the generic industry. Generic pharmaceuticals are 91 percent of prescriptions dispensed in the U.S. but only 18 percent of total drug spending.
