Introduction
Back to the Pharma Future
By Stan Bernard, MD, MBA

The Art of the Deal
Oiling the Engines of Invention

Trends
A Decade (and 1/2) of Deals
By Jim Hall
More than half the deals made by pharma are with companies based in the US, 28 percent in Europe, and 15 percent Japan.
Due Diligence
Avoiding the Train Wreck
By Gene Slowinski, PhD , Dan Watson
The "due diligence framework" is an efficient process. But efficient is not the same as quick and easy. There are no shortcuts. The framework minimizes resource commitments and disruptions to ongoing programs and helps each side learn what it needs to know. In six steps, it converts the typical due diligence root canal into a painless filling.
Success Story
Fruitful and Prosperous
By Sibyl Shalo
EVERYONE KNOWS THAT ROCHE WAS, AND ARGUABLY STILL is, the driver of Genentech's success. But not everyone knows that Roche owns a majority stake in the biotech behemoth, as it does in Japanese powerhouse Chugai. And that's by design. Roche's management has long held that the best way to derive good and lasting results from its smaller partners is to let them do what they do best and leave them alone while they do it. That philosophy has served them well, especially when revenues of some of their codeveloped and comarketed blockbuster products are considered. Just two, Genentech's Herceptin (trastuzumab) and Chugai's Epogin (epoetin beta), have earned billions.
