Deals of the Year in Biopharma (Bonus: Names That Can't Happen)
Over at InVivoBlog, they're running down their picks for "Deal of the Year" in various categories, so if that's one of your interests, you should have a look. I hadn't realized that when Abbott split off their pharma business that the blog had run a poll suggesting a new name for the drug company. The winner? Costello.
Too bad it won't happen. Reality also interfered with Bayer a few years back when they were introducing Levitra, their Viagra competitor (and very close chemical cousin). Alas, the name "Bayagra" was not seriously considered - that would have been fun to watch. . .
