Glaxo Smith Kline has sued Abbott Laboratories for increasing its AIDS drug Norvir, five-fold. Norvir, approved by the FDA in 1996, is known as a protease inhibitor. Abbott is also being sued by 2 AIDS patients as well as the SEIU Health and Welfare Fund. This suit has been classified as a class action. According to Glaxo, the quintuple increase in drug price undercut Glaxo’s Lexiva, another AIDS drug.
