GSK lightens porfolio, shrinks footprint

GlaxoSmithKline is selling thrombosis meds Arixtra and Fraxiparine to the Aspen Group, a longtime partner in GSK's ongoing effort to transfer drugs from its books to another entity. The company said in a statement Monday that the deal will include $1.3 million in cash and that it transfers global rights, with few exceptions, to the products and to a manufacturing site (the Notre Dame de Bondeville site) and “certain dedicated commercial employees.” GSK said in a statement that the deal “is a further example of GSK's commitment to increase focus on products with the most growth potential.”
