PDL BioPharma Announces Internal CEO Investigation Found No Credible Evidence of Improper Personal Conduct or Breach of Fiduciary Duty
Date:8/20/2007

Patrick Gage, Ph.D. "We are pleased that Mark has agreed to remain in the near-term as we commence a search for his replacement. I look forward to working with him and the broader management team to ens
