A landmark South African legal complaint against British drug maker GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) over its AIDS drug pricing and policies in that country will proceed following an order late last week by South Africa's Competition Tribunal that will allow the complaint to go forward.

The order also states that the parties will come back in late April or the first week of May 2005 to present oral arguments on these issues.
