AstraZeneca has urged the U.K. government to develop a new model for incentivizing investment in antibiotics, reports the Financial Times. In a letter to the Financial Times, the company said it has joined other "leading voices" in the life sciences sectory to implore Britain to go ahead with a new system rather than waiting for an international agreement. The company said a new payment model was needed that would reward companies' investments but without encouraging the over-use of antibiotics. Reference Link
