    [$$] Novartis Played Down Ties to Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen, Report Says

    Novartis AG made misleading statements playing down its 2017 relationship with President Donald Trump’s then-personal lawyer, according to a report released Friday by Democratic senators that shed new light on the company’s consulting contract with the lawyer, Michael Cohen. The report also reveals Mr. Cohen’s advocacy for another pharmaceutical company, one the report says has ties to an investment firm associated with Viktor Vekselberg, a wealthy Russian businessman now under U.S. sanctions. The $1.2 million consulting deal with Novartis came to light in May. Then the Switzerland-based drug company said it hired Mr. Cohen for insight into how “the Trump administration might approach U.S. health-care policy matters,” but that executives realized from their first meeting with him in March 2017 that he wouldn’t be helpful and stopped engaging with him.

    Novartis Account of Cohen Connection Assailed by U.S. Senators

    U.S. Senate Democrats are questioning the truthfulness of Novartis AG’s account of its relationship with Donald Trump’s lawyer, saying its ties were deeper than the Swiss drugmaker has acknowledged. An investigation by the lawmakers provided excerpts from emails and other documents to show that the business arrangement between Michael Cohen and the company extended longer than Novartis has previously said. While the pharma giant said it decided not to engage further with Cohen after an initial meeting with him in early 2017, Trump’s personal fixer and then-Chief Executive Officer Joe Jimenez had multiple discussions over the next six months, according to the report released Friday.

AT&T, Swiss drug company Novartis (nvs) private-equity firm Columbus Nova, an investment company with ties to sanctioned Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberga and Korea Aerospace Industries made payments totaling $4 million to Cohen, according to press reports and a memo released by Michael Avenatti, the lawyer representing Stephanie Clifford, a pornographic film actress known as "Stormy Daniels," who was paid $130,000 by the shell company to stay quiet about an alleged affair with Trump.

    Novartis disputes U.S. senators' report on Cohen contract

    Novartis (NOVN.S) on Friday disputed a report from Democratic U.S. senators that concluded the Swiss drugmaker misled the public about its $1.2 million (914,076.78 pounds)contract with a former attorney for President Donald Trump. "We disagree with the report's conclusion that we issued a misleading public statement regarding the extent of our engagement with (Michael) Cohen," Novartis said of the report compiled by staff of Sen. Ron Wyden, from Oregon, and other minority party lawmakers. Among other things, the document contends that former Novartis Chief Executive Joe Jimenez had "multiple additional communications" with Cohen including e-mails and phone calls.

    Removing the Hidden Obstacle Holding Back New Cancer Therapies

    Technologies like CRISPR that alter a patient’s DNA to treat disease are transforming medicine, but a little-known roadblock could slow the revolution. To insert new, potentially life-saving DNA inside the body’s cells, doctors typically rely on bespoke viruses manufactured in a few specialty labs that are frequently backlogged amid surging demand. “It’s not the sexy part of the process, but it’s really important to get right,’’ said Fred Ramsdell, vice president of research at the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy in San Francisco.

    Drugmakers Cancel Price Hikes After California Law Takes Effect

    A handful of the world’s biggest drugmakers are canceling or reducing planned price increases in the U.S., following a new California drug pricing transparency law and continued political pressure over pharmaceutical costs. The California law, which began to take effect earlier this year, requires drugmakers to give insurers, governments and drug purchasers advance notice of large price increases, as a way of publicly pressuring pharmaceutical companies to keep prices down. In the past three weeks, Novartis AG, Gilead Sciences Inc., Roche Holding AG and Novo Nordisk A/S sent notices to California health plans rescinding or reducing previously announced price hikes on at least 10 drugs.
