EU antitrust regulators have raided the offices of some pharmaceutical companies, including AstraZeneca, suspected of colluding to block the market entry of cheaper generic drugs, Euractiv.com reports.
The European Commission, which acts as the competition watchdog of the 27-nation European Union, said on Friday (3 December) the raids - the latest in a series targeting improper activities in the sector - took place on 30 November in several EU countries.
