A U.S. appeals court on Tuesday lifted a preliminary injunction blocking the sale of a generic version of the Indivior Plc opioid treatment Suboxone Film, Reuters reports. The generic was produced by India-based drug manufacturer Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories. Suboxone Film is a drug that is dissolved under the tongue. It helps drug users beat their addiction to opioids.  Eighty percent of UK-based Indivior’s revenue is generated from Suboxone. The company says that it plans to pursue ongoing U.S. patent litigation aimed at blocking the sale of Dr. Reddy’s generic version.
