Zantac PatentNew York, NY: (Jan-28-08) Drug developer Cypress Pharmaceutical Inc. had been locked in a patent infringement lawsuit with a unit of British drug maker GlaxoSmithKline PLC related to a generic version of Glaxo's Zantac syrup to treat symptoms of heartburn. Sources close to the case stated that privately held Cypress Pharma said Glaxo agreed not to assert its patent against Cypress' new alcohol-free version of ranitidine oral syrup, also known as Zantac syrup. Cypress officials said that the company expects to launch the product immediately upon receiving approval from the Food and Drug Administration.
