(Before It's News)

US federal and state officials said that Shire Pharmaceuticals (LON:SHP, NASDAQ:SHPG) will pay $350m to settle allegations that it used “kickbacks and other unlawful methods” to induce doctors to use a product aimed at treating foot ulcers.

Shire had already announced in August last year that it would settle for the amount during publication of its second-quarter results.

Shire’s ADRs were down 4.4% to $169.50 on Wall Street on Wednesday.
