Forest Laboratories will pay up to $1.5 billion to purchase Furiex Pharmaceuticals of Morrisville, N.C. Furiex expects to apply soon for FDA approval for its lead product, eluxadoline, a treatment for irritable bowel syndrome. Forest has agreed to sell Furiex’s royalties on two other drugs to Royalty Pharma for $415 million, provided the deal goes through.
