The April 2006 issue of MedMarkets updates the market for drug-eluting stents. We also review the status of the biotech industry, considering a report from Ernst & Young (Beyond Borders: The Global Biotechnology Report) and other data on this ever-optimistic industry. (BTW, I found it particularly curious that the E&Y report referred to this year as the 30th anniversary of the biotech industry — having once worked for one of the first biotechnology companies, Collaborative Research, which was founded in 1961, later named Genome Therapeutics and now known as Oscient Pharmaceutials, I guess biotech just measures time differently.)Coverage in the April MedMarkets is outlined (and will be updated) on our archives page.
Lastly, thank you for those comments received on our all-too-brief, but apparently well received, “High Growth Medical Technologies” white paper. We are considering updating and expanding it in the near future.
