On November 11, the Kiev Commercial Court ruled in favor of the Austrian pharmaceutical company Megainpharm, banning the Ukrainian competitor Darnytsia from selling the medication Oftamirine, produced by using the technology patented by Megainpharm.

The first-instance court has also ordered the Ukrainian Ministry of Health to cancel the registration of the drug Oftamirine, used for treating eye infections.
