Missouri will receive $693,000 as part of a nationwide settlement over the kidney transplant drug, Rapamune.

Neighboring Illinois will get more than $1.3 million.

The drug company Pfizer, whose subsidiary Wyeth makes Rapamune, has agreed to pay out a total of $35 million to 41 U.S. states and the District of Columbia as part of the settlement.

Pfizer employs about 500 people in research facilities around St. Louis, according to the St. Louis Business Journal. A shift at the very top of the corporation comes at a trying time for the drugmaking giant.
