China probes drugmaker Sanofi for alleged bribery

FILE - In this Feb. 7, 2013 file photo, the logo of the French drug maker Sanofi SA is seen during a press conference in Paris. Chinese authorities have launched an investigation against French drugmaker Sanofi following a news report that accused the company of bribing hundreds of Chinese doctors in 2007. An unnamed whistleblower told the Guangzhou-based, state-owned 21st Century Business Herald that the French company had paid 503 doctors a total of $274,000 to prescribe Sanofi products, disguising the payments as grants for research programs.
