The EC Opens Antitrust Investigation Against Vifor Pharma’s Anti-Competitive Disparagement for Iron Deficiency Treatment

Shots: 

  •  The EC had opened formal proceedings to determine whether Vifor Pharma had disparagement of its closest rival             Pharmacosmos to hinder competition against blockbuster iron deficiency therapy, Ferinject 
  •  Vifor Pharma may be defaming Monofer by disseminating false information about its safety. If the Commission's concerns    are validated, Vifor Pharma's actions may be considered an abuse of dominant position, in violation of Articles 102 of the      TFEU and 54 of the EEA Agreement     
  • Vifor Pharma conducted a deceptive communication campaign, primarily aimed at healthcare professionals, which may have hampered Monofer's acceptance in the EEA
