The New York Times (7/16, B2, Jolly, Harris) reports that UK pharmaceutical maker GlaxoSmithKline announced on July 15 that “it would take a second-quarter charge of $2.36 billion related to legal cases involving its drugs Avandia [rosiglitazone] and Paxil [paroxetine].”
This announcement comes one “day after an American medical advisory panel recommended that Avandia, a controversial diabetes drug, should either be withdrawn from the market or be severely restricted in its sales because it increases the risks of heart attacks.” According to GSK, “the charge announced Thursday, which will amount to about $2.1 billion after taxes, ‘includes provisioning for settled cases and an estimate for those cases which we have received and are still outstanding.'”
