Drug development Research

Innovation—it is what everyone likes to talk about, but what does it really mean for millions of patients battling disease? Simply put, medical innovation can help patients live longer, healthier and more productive lives.

Innovative medicines developed by America’s biopharmaceutical research companies have helped increase childhood cancer survival rates from 58 percent in 1970 to 83 percent today and have contributed to declining death rates for patients battling diseases such as HIV/AIDS (85 percent decline since 1995), heart disease (30 percent decline between 2001 and 2011) and cancer (20 percent decline between 1999 and 2006).

As one of the most research-intensive and science-driven industries in the U.S., the biopharmaceutical industry is committed to the research and development (R&D) of new treatments and cures for patients, including those who have serious unmet medical needs. With more than 5, 000 innovative drugs in development worldwide in the scientific and medical innovation ecosystem, continue to forge an important pathway forward in defeating disease. But in order for us to push the innovation boundaries into unchartered territories, there needs to be a regulatory and public policy environment that fosters medical advancements and promotes U.S.-based biopharmaceutical jobs.
