US hospital sues CSL for price fixing

A SMALL, publicly owned hospital in the US state of Missouri has launched a class action lawsuit against Australia's biggest health-care company, CSL, and its main rival, Baxter International, claiming a conspiracy to fix the prices of life-saving blood plasma products.

Lawyers for Pemiscot Memorial Hospital, which services several counties in south-east Missouri, allege CSL and Baxter had illegal agreements to restrict supply and push up prices through co-ordinating their individual output.
