Serono: the future is bright with Rebif

The regulator's decision to break the orphan drug status of Biogen's Avonex and allow Rebif's US sale is a massive boost to Serono's growth prospects. The resulting extra revenues should allow Serono to increase its comparatively weak pipeline through in-licensing deals - and also by going on the acquisition trail.

Biogen: Amevive decision eases Avonex woes

Biogen's Amevive has moved a step closer to the market, as an FDA panel urged its approval for treating adult chronic psoriasis. If the drug is approved, it will be a welcome diversification for Biogen. Its only marketed product, MS drug Avonex, is under serious threat from the FDA's recent decision to approve Serono's Rebif in the US.

Roche: T-20 demand will outstrip supply

Roche's new HIV drug, T-20, should launch next year. However, it already seems that producing sufficient quantities of T-20 will be a challenge - particularly before the full-scale production facility for the drug comes online.

Roche/Genentech: Herceptin poised for an expanded role

Scientists have found that HER-2 is a key contributor to the development of pre-invasive breast cancer. Roche/Genentech's Herceptin, currently used to treat advanced breast cancer, can target HER-2. However, the detection of elevated HER-2 is not routine among most physicians. Despite this, Herceptin is well positioned to build its usage in early-stage and pre-cancerous populations.
