Telmisartan + hctz: combination SPC in Spain -- now in English

Pamplona: city of great
excitement -- even for SPCs
Last month, in "Telmisartan + hctz: combination SPC revoked in Spain" (here), Javier Huarte and his colleague Sara Pelaz (Grau & Angulo, Barcelona) kindly sent us information concerning a judgment of the Commercial Court No. 1 of Pamplona, which upheld a revocation action by Cinfa and Actavis against the Spanish SPC for telmisartan + hctz.

Javier and Sara have now sent us an English translation of this decision, which you can read here.  Thanks so much, Javier and Sara, for your thoughtfulness.
