Before the Bell Scans of Mylan, Forest Laboratories, Avanir Pharma, Akorn, and Medicines Co.

LONDON, March 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The U.S. Supreme Court last year upheld President Obama's Affordable Care Act (ACA). The ACA is the biggest overhaul of the healthcare industry in decades. While critics say that ACA will have a negative impact on the healthcare industry, supporters of the reform believe that the increase in the amount of insured individuals will ultimately benefit the industry. Apart from ACA, another major trend that is having an impact on drug makers such as Mylan Inc. (NASDAQ: MYL), Forest Laboratories Inc. (NYSE: FRX), Avanir Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: AVNR), Akorn Inc. (NASDAQ: AKRX) and The Medicines Company (NASDAQ: MDCO) is the expiration of patents on several blockbuster drugs. On Thursday, drug makers ended on a mixed note even as the broad market rallied.
