A lawsuit filed in Pennsylvania state court by a New York grocery workers' union accuses Sun Pharmaceutical of colluding with Mylan to hike the prices of the asthma drug albuterol, as reported Business Standard Monday.
The group previously accused Mylan and Novartis' Sandoz unit of colluding to raise the price of the asthma drug benazepril.
In the current litigation, the union contends that Sun Pharma and Mylan raised the prices of albuterol by more than 300 percent between October 2013 and April 2014.
"The increases were the result of an agreement among defendants to increase pricing and restrain competition for the sale of albuterol sulphate in the United States," the lawsuit states.
The news comes after Aurobindo Pharma, Heritage, Mylan, Teva, Citron Pharma and Mayne Pharma were accused by nearly 40 US states of conspiring in the markets for doxycycline and glyburide.
