BeneChill Inc.

Lowering brain temperature protects cerebral tissue from ischemic damage, but any delay in inducing hypothermia compromises patient outcomes. BeneChill Inc. noninvasively delivers PFCs to the nose, and the resulting rapid heat exchange selectively cools the brain. The company will design a device for in-hospital use, as well as a version that can be used by first responders in the field.

Artificial Blood: Finding the Formula for Approval

Despite decades of effort and more than $1 billion dollars invested in commercial blood substitute R&D, no products are approved for use in the US. Can next-generation companies succeed where so many others have failed?


Millennium: Leaving Europe to Partners

When it comes to Europe, the biotech industry is increasingly saying "no." The latest refusenik: Millennium Pharmaceuticals Inc. That's because Schering-Plough Corp., beset by a host of management and competitive problems, had seen European sales of Millennium's eptifibatide (Integrilin) weaken and decline-and they had never been strong. Merck & Co. Inc.'s tirofiban (Aggrastat), a weak number three in the IIb/IIIa inhibitor US market, had nearly twice Integrilin's sales in Europe; Johnson & Johnson's abciximab (Reopro) had about ten times Integrilin's sales. Millennium re-acquired the European rights and then immediately sold them again, this time to GlaxoSmithKline PLC


Amersham's Push for High-Value Diagnostics

Amersham Health is applying Big Pharma marketing and R&D strategies to the traditionally stodgy, highly price-sensitive field of diagnostic imaging contrast agents. It has been far more aggressive than competitors in working to make innovation the basis of competition. But some analysts question whether the company can maintain near-to-mid-term growth as it awaits results of its risky, long-term effort in molecular imaging.
