Swedish rare diseases drugmaker Swedish Orphan Biovitrum (Sobi) said on Monday it had terminated discussions regarding a non-binding proposal in relation to a possible offer for the company.
 
The firm said in late April it had received a preliminary proposal for a bid on the company, and Reuters identified Pfizer as the bidder.
 
“The Board of Directors of Sobi has terminated discussions regarding this proposal,” Sobi said in a statement.
 
“Sobi will continue to focus on preparations for the upcoming planned launch of Elocta and Alprolix and on building value through its diverse and growing portfolio.”

It doesn’t leave behind hazardous waste materials, like nuclear does. And it doesn’t require large swathes of land to be flooded, like hydroelectricity. Seems too good to be true. So…what’s the catch?
