On 26 April 2018 the Supreme Court dismissed Idenix's application for leave to appeal (Docket 37781) the decision of the Federal Court of Appeal affirming the trial decision relating to two competing patents over Gilead's SOVALDI (sofosbuvir). The Federal Court of Appeal upheld the validity of Gilead's Patent 2,527,657 and declared Idenix's Patent 2,490,191 invalid on the basis of insufficiency of disclosure and inutility (for further details please see "Gilead prevails in SOVALDI appeal").
