A former employee of Swiss pharmaceutical giant Novartis AG’s Japanese unit has been found not guilty of exaggerating advertising claims for the blood pressure-lowering drug Diovan.
Besides clearing 66-year-old Nobuo Shirahashi on Thursday of violating a pharmaceutical affairs law that bans fraudulent and exaggerated advertising, the Tokyo District Court also found the Tokyo-based sales arm Novartis Pharma K.K. not guilty.
