Disease Information & Advancements

As researchers learn more and our technology increases in sophistication, the ways in which we can approach treatments for diseases have improved. Discovery and analysis that used to take years has been reduced significantly. The investments and continuous testing that goes on in our industry enables us respond more quickly to public health threats and broadens the range of treatments we now have to offer patients.

Protect Innovation

Innovation Depends on Protecting the R&D ecosystem

America's biopharmaceutical companies are at the heart of a robust R&D ecosystem, and the United States develops more innovative medicines than any other country in the world. Fundamental knowledge comes from everywhere, and it is shared and expanded upon by scientists through peer-reviewed publications, scientific meetings and licensing of intellectual property (IP). However, biopharmaceutical research companies are uniquely positioned to take the necessary risks to build on and further advance basic science research into safe and effective treatments that can be made available to patients.

Don't Let Congress Jeopardize Medical Innovation

A new report from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) makes one thing clear. Patients face a future with less hope under Congress' current drug pricing plan. The report finds that even under conservative assumptions, at least 60 new treatments and cures would be sacrificed if this proposal becomes comes to pass.

Congress Shouldn't Decide Drug Pricing. Don't Give the Government Control of Your Medicines.

Americans want to make health care more affordable and predictable. Instead, some members of Congress have introduced a divisive drug-pricing proposals that would puts more barriers between patients and their medicines. It will also destroy an estimated one million American jobs, cede our leadership in life sciences, and stifle the development of new treatments.

Disease Information & Advancements

At the core of innovative research and development of lifesaving medicines is our single vision: a world without illness. And with a pipeline of promising new treatments, we're closer than ever to reaching our goal. Learn about what is happening with various diseases and advancements.
