    AstraZeneca's CEO reaffirms 2021 targets

    AstraZeneca is fully on track to reach its earnings goal for next year, its chief executive told Reuters on Friday after the British drugmaker's quarterly earnings missed market expectations.

    MORNING BID EUROPE-Virus victim count rises -- and so do global stocks

    China's announcement of more than 5,000 new coronavirus cases and 121 new deaths indicate the epidemic hasn't peaked yet. A pan-European index is in fact opening at record highs, buoyed by … answers on a postcard. The thinking appears to be the virus impact will not last, it’s not spreading outside China as fast as feared and above all, central banks can step in -- slower growth will bring more stimulus, or at least lower interest rates for longer.

    INSIGHT-On eve of Brexit, Britain faces critical test to defend drug trial crown

    Britain's brightest and best drug researchers are packing their bags as clinical trials start to dwindle, leaving a nation renowned as a global leader in pharmaceutical development to face a future in the slow lane. This is a worst-case scenario outlined by some scientists and industry experts in the wake of Brexit, which they say could deprive the country of its role as Europe's leader in early-stage drug research, designing and hosting pan-EU trials. Pamela Kearns, professor of paediatric oncology at the University of Birmingham, worries that over time Britain will in particular lose out in the field of medicines that treat rare diseases and childhood cancers, where trials often need to collaborate and recruit across Europe to find enough patients.
