Ex-Pfiz­er staffers slap back at ac­cu­sa­tions they stole trade se­crets for new Eli Lil­ly part­ner

Al­most two months af­ter Pfiz­er sued small biotech Re­gor Ther­a­peu­tics and its top ex­ecs over al­le­ga­tions they stole com­pa­ny se­crets, the co-founders re­spond­ed to the phar­ma’s al­le­ga­tions in dis­trict court last week. And in short, their stance: de­ny, de­ny, de­ny.

Min Zhong and Xi­ayang Qiu, for­mer ex­ec­u­tives at Pfiz­er who had both been at the com­pa­ny for at least 15 years, were ac­cused of steal­ing da­ta from the phar­ma gi­ant on two drugs: a spe­cif­ic GLP-1 ag­o­nist can­di­date and leukemia treat­ment Bo­sulif.
