2007 Top 10 Biopharmaceutical Companies Report
Warts and all, Amgen remains at the apex of the Top 10 Biopharma rankings. The first half of 2007 was none too kind to the top gun, but Amgen still has a comfortable lead over its competitors on this list.
Speaking of which, there are a pair of new entries at #3 and #4! After putting Novo Nordisk on the Top 20 Pharma list last year, I decided that it would be more suited to the Top Biopharma ranks, especially since it announced that it was closing down all small molecule R&D. And UCB Group made its way onto our list after last year's edition came out and members of the company called to explain (patiently) why UCB should truly be considered a Biopharma (a lot of companies misuse the term, in my opinion). Their argument made enough sense for me to add them to this year's ranks.
Also, Chiron dropped from the list after being bought by Novartis. Serono and MedImmune will follow suit in next year's edition.
