    Any truth to Abbott and AstraZeneca merging or Abbott aquiring AZ since Abbott is stronger in terms of pipeline and existing products?

    Amen! AZ may be the only pharma company with a worse management team than Abbott. The folks who originally worked for Zeneca before the merger with Astra are STILL wondering how a conservative, well-run company like theirs could ever have been dumb enough to agree to a union with Astra. And it's only gotten worse over the past decade.

    If there were any truth to this rumor, I see Abbott selling off PPD to AZ. After bagging Certriad without a fight, doesn't sound like Abbott is interested in longterm financial commitment to primary care.

    Why not merge of buy AZ? Then Abbott would have exclusive rights to Certriad! Oh, yea very attractive investment.

    I worked for AZ and I can promise you that you will want to run out of there like your butt is on fire!!! There are always jobs open at AZ because the turnover is ridiculous. They have good pay and benefits but the culture and micromanagement is oppressive. Good luck if this rumor is true.

    At former Solvay units in Europe they discussed the issue already some months ago. Marketing people analysed use of cardiometabolics sales force for marketing Brilique. In addition, influenca vaccine was an issue. Guess it was a kind of due diligence.....

    HUMIRA and the threat by Pfizers oral alternative drugs seems to be the issue. Astra has something comparable. In addition with synagis they are already collaborating and vaccines would also be a fit. Astra has an oncology sales force and Abbott a pipeline.
