Executive Summary

Many pharmaceutical and biotech companies devote themselves to the discovery and development of novel drugs for unmet medical needs. However, with R&D costs and regulatory hurdles multiplying, and much of the low-hanging therapeutic fruit already picked, a growing number of firms are taking a different, pragmatic approach.
