China continues industry probe
China's scrutiny of the drug industry continues. The Wall Street Journal reports that Roche announced government authorities from China's State Administration for Industry and Commerce, an agency which oversees marketing and antitrust, visited a site in Hangzhou.
Thursday's news follows last week's announcement that the Ministry of Public Security accused GlaxoSmithKline of bribing HCPs to stimulate prescriptions.
AstraZeneca, Sanofi and Bayer have also come under review over the last year.
