AbbVie's pursuit of Shire will take a new turn next week when the company sends its chief researcher to the UK.

Jim Sullivan, AbbVie's head of discovery,will be eager to dispel the belief that AbbVie is over-reliant on its blockbuster rheumatoid arthritis drug Humira, which brought in more than half the company's $18.8bn (£11bn) revenue last year but will lose patent protection by 2017.
