Lundbeck says China unit visited by authorities in wider probe
COPENHAGEN Aug 8 (Reuters) - Danish pharmaceutical group Lundbeck said authorities in China visited the company's subsidiary in Beijing over the summer, as part of a wider sector probe.
"We have also been contacted by the authorities over the summer as part of this wider investigation," a Lundbeck spokesman told Reuters.
"They have contacted us and asked for different types of information regarding our marketing practices," he said, adding the company was fully co-operating and had no reason to believe it had done anything wrong.
China is widening its investigations into bribery and over-pricing, which have so far centred on Britain's GlaxoSmithKline Plc.
