Major pharma companies continue to improve their productivity by taking different approaches, such as focusing on selected therapy area and markets, mergers and acquisitions, divestment of non-core brands/segments and consolidation in animal health, vaccines and consumer health care business. The oncology segment has been one of the key areas of interest for large cap Pharma companies in 2014/2015.

The field of immuno-oncology is currently one of the most explosive fields in biotechnology. Bristol-Myers’s concentrated effort in Immuno-Oncology has gained market leadership with its Anti-PD-1 drug. Along with Bristol, there's Merck (MRK), Roche (RHHBY), and AstraZeneca (AZN) as well chasing the field. The global estimates of Immuno-oncology drug is expected at $40 billion in the next ten years. Anti-Infective remains a big attraction for large pharm. Merck acquisition of Cubist for $9 billion and Roche’ in-licensing deal for $1billion was the key highlight.

Biosimilar development from large ad Biotech companies are progressing well with many reaching to regulatory space and in lates stage of clinical trials. Biogen Idec streamlined its focus to develop drugs for specialty medicine (Multiple Sclerosis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease), Neurodegeneration (Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s, ALS, Neuro-immunology) and rare diseases (Hemophilia, Spinal Muscular Atrophy and Neuropathic Pain). Celgene (CELG) keeps capitalizing on its strength in hematology and operational excellence to build global standards of care in the segments of Oncology and Inflammation & Immunology (I&I).

Gilead, a prominent player in Hepatitis C therapy areas is looking to expand its expertise in liver disease for another high unmet need of Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH), while its oncolgy segment failed to make any major impact other than approved drug Zydelig. First - in-class mechanisms like anti-PD1, anti-PCSK9 and CDK inhibitors continue to get attraction by large cap pharma companies. Biotech and pharmaceutical companies pursue targeted and specialized therapies - more than 25% (45 new drugs approval vs. 44 in 2014) of drugs approved by FDA in 2015 are Personalized Medicines.
