GSK appeals Delaware court ruling in Zantac litigation
11 June 2024 -

Biopharmaceutical company GSK plc (LSE/NYSE:GSK) confirmed on Tuesday that it is appealing a Delaware court decision allowing plaintiff expert testimony in the ongoing Zantac (ranitidine) litigation.

The company argues that the ruling contradicts how the Daubert standard is typically applied and could impact all Delaware businesses.

GSK, joined by Pfizer (NYSE:PFE), Sanofi (Euronext Paris:SAN) (Nasdaq:SNY) and Boehringer Ingelheim, has filed with the Delaware Supreme Court seeking to overturn the lower court's decision. GSK maintains that there is no consistent or reliable evidence that ranitidine increases the risk of any cancer.

A decision on whether to grant interlocutory review and hear the appeal is expected later this year.
