Note on recent ECJ memantine and galantamine rulings

Thanks are due to Herwig von Morze for drawing The SPC Blog's attention to a recent summary, "European Court of Justice holds SPCs for old medicinal products invalid", which was prepared by Ana-Laura Morales of Spanish law firm Grau & Angulo and published last week by International Law Office. The note deals with the ECJ's recent rulings in the memantine and galantamine cases (covered by this weblog here and here). .
