"Roche confirms there is no agreement between Roche and Novartis that restricts competition," the drugmaker said in a statement.
Earlier on Thursday, the companies said France's competition authority was investigating them on suspicion they were involved in anti-competitive practices in relation to treatment for wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD). (Reporting by Caroline Copley; Editing by Pravin Char)
