Details: Early in 2007 Merck announced that a preliminary study of Nastech's PYY3-36 anti-obesity spray demonstrated no effect and was pulling out of a collaboration to develop the therapy. Then, in November, Nastech took another serious hit after Procter & Gamble pulled out of its efforts on an osteoporosis nasal spray treatment. The company has since announced plans to restructure, including plans to lay off some of its 197 workers.
