    AstraZeneca potassium drug finally approved, threatening Vifor

    The decision by U.S. regulators to finally approve AstraZeneca's (AZN.L) much-delayed excess potassium drug Lokelma gives the group another new medicine launch, boosting its portfolio as it strives to offset declining sales of older products. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had turned down the drug, formerly known as ZS-9, two times previously, casting doubt over AstraZeneca's decision to buy its original developer ZS Pharma for $2.7 billion (2 billion pounds) in 2015. Analysts, reacting to the approval announced late on Friday, said on Monday that the label for Lokelma was modestly better than for Vifor Pharma's (VIFN.S) rival therapy Veltassa, which also treats excess potassium levels or hyperkalemia.

    AstraZeneca pay report rejected by 35 percent of shareholders

    More than a third of AstraZeneca shareholders staged a revolt over bonuses at the pharmaceutical company on Friday, following concerns about levels of disclosures and outcomes under the company's incentive scheme. The rebellion is a blow for Chief Executive Pascal Soriot, who earlier reported first-quarter financial results that missed analysts' forecasts, but did provide evidence that the company's new drugs were growing strongly. "AstraZeneca engaged with its major shareholders during 2017 and is disappointed that enhancements made to remuneration report disclosures and changes to the operation of the annual bonus scheme in response to shareholder feedback have not significantly improved the voting result," the company said.
