US pharmaceutical company Alexion has announced another jobs boost for Dublin after revealed plans to create 50 posts at a new Irish office.
The Connecticut-based drug manufacturer is also set to establish a global chain supply facility in Ireland, and is expected to supply its product Soliris to patients by the end of the year.
Soliris treats sufferers of two rare and severe blood disorders, paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria and atypical hemolytic-uremic syndrome.
