Novartis acquires US pharma research firm Selexys Pharmaceuticals
Swiss-based pharmaceuticals giant Novartis said Monday it was acquiring Selexys Pharmaceuticals Corp., a US research lab in blood and inflammatory disorders, in a deal costing up to $665 million (627 million euros).
Selexys specialises in sickle cell disease, an inherited form of anaemia that is most common among people of African descent.
