GLAXOSMITHKLINE (GSK) will pay $105m (£62.7m) to settle claims brought by 44 US states over its alleged violations of state trade practices.

The payment comes two years after GSK paid a $3bn US Federal fine for marketing some of its drugs without the correct approval from regulators. The company was facing ongoing litigation in the US over the issue at a state level.

GSK, the UK’s biggest drug maker, is currently embroiled in a Serious Fraud Office investigation into its commercial practices across several jurisdictions.
