Welcome back from Thanksgiving holiday! Can’t believe it’s already December…
This will be the only Impactiviti Daily this week, as I am heading down to South Carolina for the graduation of my #2 son (David) from Marine boot camp.
Layoffs. Sanofi reps are apparently getting the news this week. Ugh.
Will Celgene‘s Revlimid take off even faster? – Celgene Corp. can more than triple sales for its best-selling cancer pill Revlimid on new data that may convince doctors to choose the drug as a first option over Johnson & Johnson’s intravenous medicine, Velcade.
Court to Glaxo reps seeking overtime pay: No. FDA to Novartis on seasonal flu shot: Yes.

Whew! The back-to-back conference marathon is now over, and we can get back to our regular pharma news reporting. Here’s what’s up today…
Everyone’s talking about the Zetia/Niaspan study – its results, its significance, its limitations. Bottom line – I can’t see how this can be good for Merck. More here. And Jim Edwards analyzes the damage control spin effort here.
Always a headline topic: female sexual desire treatments. The more you read about this drug (experimental ‘flibanserin’ from Boehringer-Ingelheim), however, the more you wonder if the purported effect will be worth the expense and the side effects.
BMS pushing Mead-Johnson out of the nest. It is amazing to me how drug companies cycle through periods where they diversify, then spin divisions off…
Novartis: half a dose of H1N1 vaccine may be enough. Now that’s how to increase vaccine supply!
If you’re going to blow the whistle, I guess it’s important to get on to the field of play! Whistleblower lawsuit against J&J dismissed.
