Executive Summary

The pharmaceutical/biotechnology industry is continuing to move away from the blockbuster
model approach and towards the treatment of orphan diseases and personalized medicine.

Continued growth in personalized medicine and companion diagnostics will move beyond
oncology and into areas such as virology, central nervous system, and cardiology.

While the number of new molecular entities (NMEs) continues to decline, the life sciences
industry has made great progress in treating complex conditions and providing greater ease
of use for patients (e.g., oral medicines for complex conditions such as hepatitis C and
multiple sclerosis).

The industry is seeing increasing speed and intensity of product competition in the areas of
generics and biosimilars, including the recent European launch of biosimilar monoclonal
antibodies (mAbs).

It is becoming the norm worldwide for payments and reimbursements to be tied to quality of
care.

Pharmaceutical companies continue to move beyond the pill. Big pharma companies are
looking to adopt alternative business models beyond prescription treatments to support the
entire continuum of care such as disease prevention and patient monitoring.
