German prosecutors have launched an investigation into allegations that SmithKline Beecham, which merged with Glaxo Wellcome to form GSK in 2000, bribed doctors to use its products.

The investigation followed raids at a number of companies in Germany two years ago and allegedly involved bribes of up to DM60,000 ($26,000) being paid to more than 1,000 German doctors.

GSK was not immediately available for comment.
