GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Said to Pay $120 Million to End Denture-Cream Suits


5/5/2011 7:00:31 AM

GlaxoSmithKline Plc (GSK) has paid at least $120 million to resolve claims that some of its Poligrip products have caused neurological disorders because the denture cream contains zinc, two people familiar with the accords said.

Glaxo, the U.K.’s biggest drugmaker, resolved more than 100 lawsuits over the past nine months alleging it failed to warn consumers about Poligrip’s zinc-related health risks, the people said. The accords averaged more than $1 million apiece said the people, who declined to be identified because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly.

“GSK has been dogged by litigation over a variety of its products and has been moving aggressively to resolve those cases,” Navid Malik, a London-based analyst with Matrix Corporate Capital LLP, said in a phone interview. “I see these settlements as part of that effort.”
