  • Garnier Repondez, S'il Vous Plait Faux Pas Friday, 25 May 2007 | 10:24 AM ET
    Jean-Pierre Garnier

    If you happened to be watching CNBC's "Closing Bell" yesterday afternoon, you may have seen what we call a "promo" (short for a promotion of an upcoming story or guest) for a "First on CNBC" interview with GlaxoSmithKline CEO Jean-Pierre (JP) Garnier on today's "Closing Bell" at 3:15 ET.Since the Avandia news broke on Monday, I'd been trying to get an interview with him. He talked to The Wall Street Journal mid-week, but had yet to do a TV interview. Then, yesterday afternoon I got a call from his British PR person telling me that Garnier would like to come on CNBC on Friday. She said he was flying to the States from Europe last night and that we could do a live, one-on-one interview with him at or near the company's U.S. headquarters in Pennsylvania.

  • Price Per Pound Thursday, 24 May 2007 | 12:55 PM ET

    So, for the first time we are getting a clue about how much GlaxoSmithKline will charge for the over-the-counter diet pill Alli, at least at drugstore.com.According to the pricing on the site, where you can actually pre-order your Alli (it won't be available until next month), it'll cost about 83 cents per pill (60 capsules for $49.99). You're supposed to take about three a day, one at every mealtime. But if you buy in bulk (120 pills), the price goes down to about 62 cents apiece. Drugstore.com is also offering free shipping.

  • Drugs from A to Z: Alli, Avandia, Acomplia & Zimulti Wednesday, 23 May 2007 | 1:44 PM ET

    In the middle of the Avandia blowup, GlaxoSmithKline this week is launching the new over-the-counter diet pill "Alli." The company says it's spending 150 million bucks on the first-year marketing of the formerly prescription-only Xenical from Roche.A big chunk of that is going toward a multi-pronged educational campaign to convince dieters they have to change their eating habits and exercise if they want to get the maximum benefit from Alli. That's crucial with this drug because the more fat you eat, the worse the gastrointestinal side effects. Clue: Glaxo is telling Alli users to wear dark pants and bring an extra pair to work. The company has gone so far as to set up an exhibit in New York City this week where people can get more information about Alli.

  • Stocks ended mixed and the S&P 500 failed to close at a new record for the second straight session.

"It's indicative of the late stages of a bull market."

  • A High Dose of News & a Bit of Pharma Funny Business Tuesday, 22 May 2007 | 2:44 PM ET

    So, let's start with GlaxoSmithKline's Avandia. The stock is rebounding a little bit today after the pummeling it took yesterday. Once again, the New England Journal of Medicine study saw an "embargo break" by another media outlet. That means the news hit in the middle of the trading day yesterday, catching just about everyone by surprise. The embargo was supposed to have lifted at 5 p.m. ET yesterday, which would have given all of the stakeholders -- chiefly Glaxo -- the ability to issue their prepared press releases at the same time.
