The Delhi High Court in an interim order restrained generic drug maker Glenmark Pharmaceuticals from manufacturing, selling or advertising its asthma drug under the mark Indamet.

The drug which is allegedly identical or deceptively similar to Sun Pharma Laboratories’ registered mark for its anti-diabetes drug “Istamet XR CP”.

Sun Pharma and Glenmark are contesting over their right to use drug names “Istamet” and “Indamet”, respectively, which Sun Pharma finds to be deceptively similar and confusing.

While Sun Pharma’s medicine Istamet sold in the form of tablets under the extensions – ISTAMEsT, ISTAMET XR, and ISTAMET XR CP – is a Schedule ‘G’ drug, Glenmark’s medicine under mark Indamet is a Schedule ‘H’ drug used for treatment of asthma.
