The 2010 American Heart Association Scientific Sessions in Chicago (November 13-17) were relatively quiet, with Bayer's Xarelto and Merck's anacetrapib proving to be the main attractions. However, Datamonitor expects that data presented on cardiorenal sydromes, critical limb ischemia, and cachexia in heart failure will also have an impact on the future of cardiovascular drug development.

Antibiotics: bad news for bacteria and pharma companies

Physicians frequently prescribe antibiotics for viral infections due to patient demands, even though they are unnecessary.

Adopting this strategy could cut rates of resistance, saving healthcare providers money while making R&D in the antibacterials field less attractive.

Pre-hospital thrombolysis should revitalize sales of thrombolytics, which have seen falling sales since 1998 because PCTA and stenting are more effective. However, the new procedure may be slow to reach the US, because of the high risk of litigation. And even where pre-hospital thrombolysis does take off, the major beneficiary will be Genentech's TNKase.
