Mylan launches first generic EpiPen as state AGs sue generics makers for price collusion

Mylan (NSDQ:MYL) launched its 1st generic EpiPen emergency allergy treatment 1 day after attorney generals from 20 states filed a civil complaint against Mylan, Teva Pharmaceuticals (NYSE:TEVA), and 4 other generic drug makers. The complaint alleges that the companies co-conspired in informal gatherings, calls and text messages to fix the price for glyburide, a diabetes drug, and doxycycline hyclate, an antibiotic. The Canonsburg, Penn.-based company has been under fire since August when reports revealed it hiked the price of its EpiPen device 500% since it acquired the auto-injector in 2007. In response to widespread criticism from politicians and lawmakers, Mylan said in August that it would launch a discounted generic version of the device and expand its patient assistance program.

Also macroangiopathy and even microangiopathy to some extent can be regarded as adverse even...

(CNN) — The coronavirus has infected more than 100,000 people worldwide.
