Shire sells cancer business to Servier

by Ryan Cross
April 22, 2018 | APPEARED IN VOLUME 96, ISSUE 17

Shire also has an experimental treatment for leukemia under review at the U.S. FDA. News of the sale comes about two weeks after Japan’s Takeda Pharmaceutical announced it was considering a bid to acquire Shire.
