A review of the biosimilar pipeline for products like Etanercept, Infliximab, Rituximab or Adalimumab reveals the breadth of hopeful treatments in late phase pipeline development. Via MedCity News from IMS.



Manufacturers face massive challenges in bringing a product to the market, with 95% of agents failing during development and only 20% making back their development investments. According to Dickson Data.



The pharma pipeline for cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and respiratory diseases is strong. As an example, there are close to 500 agents in the pipeline to treat cardiovascular diseases, according to IFPMA (International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers & Associations).
