Watch Pfizer’s $14 Billion Medivation Deal Boosts Cancer Drug Roster Business News Video

“Pfizer Inc (PFE.N), beating out numerous other bidders, said it agreed to buy U.S. cancer drug company Medivation Inc (MDVN.O) for $14 billion in cash, adding its blockbuster prostate cancer drug Xtandi to the company’s growing oncology roster.

“Medivation shares jumped nearly 20 percent to close at $80.42, just shy of the offer price of $81.50 per share. Shares of Pfizer, the largest U.S. drugmaker, were down 0.4 percent at $34.84.

“The offer is a 55-percent premium to Sanofi SA’s (SASY.PA) initial bid to buy Medivation for $52.50 per share in April, which pushed the San Francisco-based company to put itself up for sale.

“It represents a 118-percent increase since Reuters reported on March 30 that Medivation had hired JP Morgan to handle interest from companies in a potential acquisition.”

    Totally agree with you, what kind of a person would stab his own father in the back and imprison most of his father’s friends who opposed his despicable act!Recently the most famous poet in Qatar” Mohammed aldhib al ajami” was sentenced to life imprisonment for writing a poem glorifying the Tunisian revolution and drawing parallels with his Qatar where no democracy exists and where power is hereditary as in medieval times.

    We have a forced-air gas furnace for a three-story house and the Swing setting (range of temperatures regulating the on/off operation of the furnace) is currently 3 degrees. What cost and/or environmental effects would result from increasing or decreasing that swing setting. Thanks.

  11. The prices are the biggest problem. The fact is that Americans pay double or worse for the same quality of care as in other countries. Medicaid offers only slightly worse coverage (mainly dental) than private insurance, and is radically cheaper. Why? Because bigger insurers have more bargaining power to extract lower prices from providers. They’re buying in bulk.

Habria que mirar mas formas de presion.Quizas menos consumo o algo asi como dice “qaesar”.

    Thanks for your post. I also believe that laptop computers have grown to be more and more popular currently, and now in many cases are the only form of computer included in a household. Simply because at the same time they are becoming more and more reasonably priced, their processing power is growing to the point where they may be as robust as desktop out of just a few years back.

    Sync,Why settle? Have you not heard? The recession is over and personal savings rates are on the rise. Extra calorie-free cake and icecream for everyone.It is funny, we hear reports of personal savings going from 0 percent (or below) to 4 percent and it gets trumpeted as a great sign that the economy is on the mend. It makes one wonder, though, why we do not hear as much about current debt loads. So what if a family saves $4,000 this year if the credit card bill is not declining, or is increasing.It becomes an exercise in polishing the ships bell on the Titanic.

    Está claro que todos los que tenemos una página necesitamos una medida, un baremo que indique si tenemos o no relevancia. De ahí que medidores como PageRank o Alexa merezcan esa atención.¿Una atención exagerada? No lo sé… Es evidente que lo importante de una web o de un blog es la calidad y frecuencia de su tráfico, pero al final, todos acabamos necesitando un indicador. Pasa lo mismo en el mundo editorial (fijaos en cómo se insiste en el número de ediciones de un libro) y en los medios de comunicación (los dichosos datos de OJD).
