GSK Acquires PRV for ViiV’s Two-Drug HIV Therapy, Beating Gilead to Billion-Dollar Market
Thursday June 8th, 2017
Late last week, ViiV Healthcare filed applications with both the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the world’s first two-drug HIV maintenance therapy. The treatment will also be the first of its kind on the market thanks to a surprising priority review voucher (PRV) acquisition by ViiV’s majority owner, GlaxoSmithKline – capitalizing on the multi-billion-dollar HIV market four months earlier than competitors Gilead’s HIV treatment.
Instead of the usual 10-month application process, this PRV allows ViiV, and therefore GSK, to have it completed in six months. For more information on PRVs, check out…

Monday May 29th, 2017
As we come approach the midway mark of 2017, we can’t help but wonder how the passage of time is affecting the pharmaceutical industry. Regarding U.S. patents on certain drugs, some big-name pharma companies are looking at big-time losses in 2017. Companies like Takeda, Pfizer, Gilead, Eli Lilly, and Bristol-Myers Squibb are doing their best to hold onto these coveted drug patents, but odds are that they won’t have such great luck. According to a recently published content report from FiercePharma, a handful of popular drug patents in the U.S. are expiring.
To give you an idea…
Top 10 Pharma R&D Budgets
Monday May 22nd, 2017
Since drug pricing was a noted talking point of the 2016 presidential election, it might not come as a surprise that R&D budgets in the pharmaceutical industry have seen big cuts as a result. And while this comes across as a negative, reduced spending on pharma R&D – though resulting in staff cuts, restructured operations, and more – actually resulted in positive percentage terms in sales. Luckily for us, FierceBiotech has made this information easy to understand in a recently published content report.
R&D spending varied from company to company, but overall,…
