Product description

The cost of R&D for a successful new medicine has been an important policy issue at least since the 1960s.This publication reviews research published over the last three decades and includes a new cost analysis, which validates earlier analyses. The study also explores four major factors responsible for higher R&D costs: out-of-pocket expenses, success/failure rates, R&D times and the cost of capital. The authors review the measures companies are taking now to improve efficiency and offer a glimpse at the promise and challenges presented by the new, gene-based sciences.
