It has been a difficult year for pharmaceuticals firm Vectura (VEC). Since May, the company’s share price has plummeted by 25% after the US Food and Drug Administration temporarily blocked the launch of Hikma’s (HIK) generic asthma treatment VR315.

This had a negative read-across for Vectura as VR315 is based on its dry powder inhaler tech so investors will be keen for updates on a potential launch when the firm reports its interim results on 6 September.
