    Regulators flag possible birth defect link to GSK's HIV drug

    U.S. and European regulators said they were assessing evidence that GlaxoSmithKline's (GSK.L) HIV drug dolutegravir might be linked to serious birth defects, casting a shadow over a medicine that has been a key profit driver in recent years. Friday's move by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) follows preliminary data from a study in Botswana which found four cases of neural tube defects in babies born to mothers who became pregnant while taking the drug.

    GSK bets on lift from new lung drugs ahead of Advair's last gasp

    GlaxoSmithKline (GSK.L) is putting more marketing muscle behind its new lung drugs and is looking for a sales boost as top respiratory experts gather to analyse clinical trials data at a meeting in San Diego this weekend. The British drugmaker has dominated the lung drug market for decades, but its pre-eminence is no longer guaranteed, given declining sales of the ageing Advair inhaler, which could soon face generic competition in the United States. The market is also seeing intensified pricing pressure, raising doubts over the long-term profitability of newer drugs.

    Glaxo Cuts Jobs in Finance, Adds Ones in Cancer in Hunt for Drugs

    GlaxoSmithKline Plc is cutting finance and accounting positions while bringing in people with cancer and science backgrounds as the U.K.’s biggest drug company shifts spending to develop its best new treatments. The new strategy has led to a “reasonable number” of job cuts, said Luke Miels, president of the London-based company’s global pharmaceutical division, declining to quantify them. Glaxo at the same time is increasing the number of medical science liaisons, specialists who establish relationships with top doctors, as well other roles, he said in an interview.

    Investors Need to Adopt a Different Mindset for Big Pharma and Biotech Stocks

    The ability to sell new drugs hinges on approvals from government bodies such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). As a result, biotech companies, and to some degree, large drug companies, go into business ventures without the certainty of ever earning revenues, let alone profits. Biotech stocks often become some of the most difficult to evaluate.

    Sharon Bassett tries to stretch a month’s supply of GlaxoSmithKline Plc’s Advair over 60 days to save money on the asthma treatment because the U.S. lacks a cheaper generic version. Since 2001, Advair has helped children and adults with chronic lung diseases while raking in about $100 billion in sales for Glaxo along the way. “It’s been a particularly long and frustrating journey,” said Steve Miller, chief medical officer of Express Scripts Holding Co., which negotiates drug prices for employers and insurers.
