The Ax At Aveo
The failure at the FDA of Aveo's kinase inhibitor tivozanib has had the expected fallout: the company has cut over half its employees.
I cannot resist linking to Adam Feuerstein's take on this news. If there's a case against his viewpoint, I'd be glad to link to that as well. But for now:
Aveo Oncology (AVEO_) fired 140 middle and lower-level employees -- 62 percent of its workforce -- on Tuesday in order to save money to pay the salaries and bonuses of its top executives who blew up the company, decimated shareholder value and are too cowardly to accept responsibility for their incompetence.
At Aveo, accountability starts at the bottom.
