2017 in review: FDA approvals of new molecular entities.

08:00 EDT 8th May 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "2017 in review: FDA approvals of new molecular entities."

An overview of drugs approved by the FDA in 2017 reflected a reversion to the mean after a low number of NME approvals in 2016. This reversal was largely driven by the largest number of biologics-based NMEs recorded to date, which offset an average number of small-molecule approvals. Oncology indications continued to dominate followed by novel treatments for infectious, immunologic and neurologic diseases. From a mechanistic standpoint, the industry has continued a trend of target diversification, reflecting advances in scientific understanding of disease processes. Finally, 2017 continued a period of relatively few mergers and acquisitions, which broke a more-than-a-decade-long decline in the number of organizations contributing to research and development.
