French drugmaker Sanofi SA said it took "very seriously" allegations published in a Chinese newspaper on Thursday that its staff bribed more than 500 doctors in China in 2007 to raise sales. An anonymous whistleblower, identified only through a false name "Pei Gen", told the 21st Century Business Herald newspaper that Sanofi staff paid bribes totaling around 1.7 million yuan ($277,800) to 503 doctors at 79 hospitals in Shanghai, Beijing, Hangzhou and Guangzhou in late 2007.
