Each week, we like to take a moment to boil down the biggest news from the most influential companies in the pharmaceuticals industry, and tell our viewers what that news means for you. We call that segment our Big Pharma Roundup.

In this video, Motley Fool health-care analyst Brenton Flynn tells us what this means for the company and the drug from here.
