US gov­ern­men­t's court bat­tle be­gins over Gilead HIV drug patents

Ju­ry se­lec­tion be­gins to­day in a Delaware fed­er­al court for the law­suit that kicked off in 2019 when the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment sued Gilead, al­leg­ing that the sale of its HIV drugs Tru­va­da and De­scovy for pre-ex­po­sure pro­phy­lax­is (PrEP) in­fringes on gov­ern­ment-owned patents.

While Tru­va­da and De­scovy were ini­tial­ly ap­proved for the treat­ment of HIV back in 2004 and 2016, re­spec­tive­ly, they were lat­er ap­proved in the pre­ven­tive set­ting — Tru­va­da in 2012 and De­scovy in 2019.
