Sanofi said it filed the motion after receiving notification from the American company in mid-September stating that it had submitted a new drug application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for an insulin glargine pre-filled pen and vial-drug products.

The company said that the new drug application challenges its patents for Lantus and Lantus SoloSTAR products.
