Leading Pharmaceutical Innovation: Trends and Drivers for Growth in the Pharmaceutical Industry

Pharmaceutical giants have doubled their investments in drug development in the past decade only to see new drug approvals remain constant. This book investigates and highlights a set of proactive strategies aimed at generating sustainable competitive advantage based on value-generating business practices. We focus on three sources of pharmaceutical innovation: new management methods in the drug development pipeline, new technologies as enablers for cutting-edge R&D, and new forms of cooperation and internationalization, such as open innovation in the early phases of R&D. Our findings are illustrated by cases from Europe, the US, and Asia.

Competition Law and Patents: A Follow-on Innovation Perspective in the Biopharmaceutical Industry

In June 2005 the European Commission announced that it had fined AstraZeneca €60 million for misusing the patent system to delay entry of competitors thereby abusing its dominant position in contravention of Art. 82 EC. In October 2005 a complaint by six phone manufacturers was reported against Qualcomm, a chip manufacturer that owns patents over technology used in 3G handsets, alleging that Qualcomm refused to license essential patents on fair terms, and charged excessive royalties for its essential patents thereby acting anti-competitively. In December 2005 the Commission published a Discussion Paper on the Application of Art. 82 to Exclusionary Abuses. In February 2007 the Commission opened an investigation into Boehringer’s best selling drug last year, Spiriva, in relation to possible misuses of the patent system to exclude competition from the market.

Food Chemicals Codex

The Food Chemicals Codex is the accepted standard for defining the quality and purity of food chemicals. It is frequently referenced by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and many international food regulatory authorities. This Second Supplement to the Fourth Edition provides revisions and updates, reports on changes in tests and assays, and includes an errata section to both the First Supplement as well as to the Fourth Edition.

This supplement also includes eight new and 34 revised monographs, two new and two revised general analytical test methods, and one new test solution. As in the First Supplement, each monograph will be presented in its entirety with a boxed explanatory section preceding it. The corrected or new sections of general analytical tests are also presented in their entirety. A more specific table of contents and the use of page headers, along with other planned design changes, will make this text even easier to use.

The supplement will be of interest to producers and users of food chemicals, including processed-food manufacturers, food technologists, quality control chemists, research investigators, teachers, students, and others involved in the technical aspects of food safety.


Patent Failure: How Judges, Bureaucrats, and Lawyers Put Innovators at Risk

In the last several years, business leaders, policymakers, and inventors have complained to the media and to Congress that today's patent system stifles innovation instead of fostering it. But like the infamous patent on the peanut butter and jelly sandwich, much of the cited evidence about the patent system is pure anecdote--making realistic policy formation difficult. Is the patent system fundamentally broken, or can it be fixed with a few modest reforms? Moving beyond rhetoric, Patent Failure provides the first authoritative and comprehensive look at the economic performance of patents in forty years. James Bessen and Michael Meurer ask whether patents work well as property rights, and, if not, what institutional and legal reforms are necessary to make the patent system more effective.

Patent Failure presents a wide range of empirical evidence from history, law, and economics. The book's findings are stark and conclusive. While patents do provide incentives to invest in research, development, and commercialization, for most businesses today, patents fail to provide predictable property rights. Instead, they produce costly disputes and excessive litigation that outweigh positive incentives. Only in some sectors, such as the pharmaceutical industry, do patents act as advertised, with their benefits outweighing the related costs.

By showing how the patent system has fallen short in providing predictable legal boundaries, Patent Failure serves as a call for change in institutions and laws. There are no simple solutions, but Bessen and Meurer's reform proposals need to be heard. The health and competitiveness of the nation's economy depend on it.

Practical Guide to Clinical Data Management

Clinical data management (CDM) has changed from being an essentially clerical task in the late 1970s and early 1980s to a highly computerized, highly specialized field today. Clinical data managers have had to adapt their data management systems and processes accordingly. Practical Guide to Clinical Data Management steers readers through the role of data management in clinical trials and includes more advanced topics such as CDM systems, SOPs, and quality assurance. It helps readers establish GCP, manage laboratory data, ensure that DMB systems are in compliance with federal regulations, and deal with the kinds of clinical data that can cause difficulties in database applications.
