Hood: State settles with Eli Lilly
Published: February 5,2010
JACKSON — Attorney General Jim Hood says Mississippi will receive $18.5 million in a settlement with drug manufacturer Eli Lilly and Co.
Hood, speaking yesterday at a news conference in Jackson, says the settlement represents a recovery for funds spent on the anti-psychotic drug Zyprexa by Medicaid and the state insurance plan.
Zyprexa has been Lilly’s top-selling drug for several years.
In January, Lilly reported Zyprexa had double-digit sales growth to $1.36 billion in the fourth quarter.
