The Productive Innovation Index (PII), now in its fifth year, provides a systematic, objective assessment of how well the top 30 companies perform in bringing new medicines to market successfully.
With the 2015 ranking, we see a number of companies who were outside the top 10 last year make it into the upper rungs. These companies have been star performers – Gilead, Biogen, Amgen and Celgene have all climbed rapidly. Big Pharma delivered a so-so set of results. While J&J, Novartis, Roche and Bayer can count themselves as the best players in the Big Pharma bracket, for the likes of BMS, GSK, Sanofi and Pfizer, it has been a year to forget.
