*Novartis Update: Supreme Court adjourns final hearing to 22 August 2012 at
Novartis’ request*



6 July 2012, New Delhi.



At the request of Novartis' lawyer, the final hearing of the petition filed
by Novartis AG challenging the Intellectual Property Appellate Board's
rejection of its patent application for beta-crystalline form of imatinib
mesylate and related matters has been adjourned to 22 August 2012.



Novartis' lawyer mentioned the matter today before Justice Aftab Alam and
Justice H. L. Gokhale and sought an adjournment citing the unavailability
of one of its senior counsels.



As may be recalled, on 28 April 2012, the Supreme Court had directed that
the matters should be listed for final hearing on 10 July 2012.



In solidarity,
