Oxford GlycoSciences/Teva: identifying Israeli opportunities

The deal is important, since 10-15% of Gaucher disease patients live in Israel. While it goes against OGS' intended strategy of marketing Vevesca alone, the deviation will be beneficial in the long run. Israel will not be as strong a market for OGS' later compounds, and a large licensing payment at this stage will help it establish salesforces in the key pharma markets.

Peptor: investigating additional indications in diabetes

DiaPep277 has already shown strong trial results for type I diabetes, which is in some ways similar to LADA. This makes the new investigation seem worthwhile. Approval would provide a new treatment option for an often-misdiagnosed subcategory of diabetic patients. It would also greatly increase the market potential of the drug, by allowing access to a much larger patient population.

Personal health records will play an important role in the exchange of health information

Early successes in healthcare interoperability are paving the way for more health information exchanges in the near to mid future.

Pfizer & Wyeth: opening the door for Big Pharma M&A

In the wake of Pfizer's deal, Sanofi-Aventis has begun negotiations with banks in preparation for its own M&A activity while GlaxoSmithKline, still staying clear of mega-mergers, is making another round of job cuts.

Pfizer's acquisition of Wyeth brings scale but will fail to deliver sustainable sales growth

The Pfizer-Wyeth merger will create a prescription pharmaceutical company of unprecedented scale. The combined entity would have recorded total company sales in excess of $70 billion and prescription pharmaceutical sales of over $60 billion in 2008. However, the deal is not a solution to the companies' declining sales outlooks, and profit growth will only be achieved through further cost cutting.
