Abbott’s Laboratories R&D Capabilities Questione

Abbott Laboratories shares fell by 1.3% to close at $43.80 following U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) rejection of its new drug Xinlay. Increased number of scientists and analysts question the efficiency of Abbott’s R&D // , after the rejection of its drug.
