The U.K. Competition and Markets Authority is reviewing Roche Holding AG's (RO.EB) planned acquisition of Spark Therapeutics Inc. (ONCE), the regulator said Wednesday.

Swiss pharmaceuticals company Roche announced plans to acquire U.S.-based biotechnology company Sparks in February this year.

The authority is considering whether a merger would lead to a substantial lessening of competition within the United Kingdom and it seeks comments on the deal by Oct. 11, it said.
