Canadian drugs sales level off while R&D budgets fall

This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

Pharmaceutical sales grew just 1.7% in 2011 from Can$12.9 billion to Can$13.1 billion according to Canada's Patented Medicine Prices Review Board (PMPRB), which has the legal mandate of ensuring that medicines prices in Canada are not excessive. Indeed the increase in the total spend on medicines can be attributed to the introduction of new medicines rather than changes in prices.
