Stakeholder Perspectives: Innovation within the Biopharma Industry

NEW YORK, March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- New Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: Stakeholder Perspectives: Innovation within the Biopharma Industry

What does innovation mean within the biopharma industry? How much you spend on R&D? How many products you bring to market? How many New Molecular Entities (NME) you have in research?

Within the biopharma industry, R&D output is at odds with R&D investment. Between 1950 and 2010, the number of new molecules (including both biologics and small molecules) brought to market by the biopharma industry, per billion dollars of R&D expenditure, fell by a factor of 100 in inflation adjusted terms. Innovation, it seems, is getting increasingly expensive while the prospect of blockbuster income to pay for it is getting rarer. Something has to change.

So...what are the issues we need to consider?

- New molecular entity (NME) output is not an accurate reflection of the state of innovation: new ways of measuring innovation within the biopharma industry are needed. Current methods of measuring NME output from either the FDA or EMA provide only a snapshot of what regulatory agencies deem approvable. The industry needs to move beyond NME output as a measure of innovation, taking into account provider, purchaser and user metrics including pipeline activity, clinical success, regulatory approval, patient access, satisfaction of unmet need and overall value to society;

- Collaboration is critical to success: Industry must leverage the experience, skills and insights from a diverse range of stakeholders such as physicians, patients and payers – this is critical to the future of innovation. But collaboration needs to be smart. Biopharma companies must collaborate only when the expected outcome adds value to society, contributes to better patient outcomes and supports commercial goals;

- Companies need to be brave: constantly mining a 'comfort zone' of known approaches leads to complacency and limits innovation. While many believe that all of the 'low hanging fruit' have been taken there is another perspective: that there is plenty of fruit left on the tree and companies just need the bravery and vision to look for them.

This FirstView advisory report – the first in a major new series – provides everyone interested in the dynamics of biopharma innovation with a robust understanding of the issues, opinions and insights that are shaping the current environment, and the events that could lead to a change in the future. Every aspect of the report is informed by expert insight gathered from 60-minute interviews with 16 key opinion leaders (KOLs), payers and senior industry executives from leading companies from across Europe and the US.

Experts share their insights on...

- The impact of innovation within biotechnology over the last 15-20 years- A view of what a world without biologics would have looked like

Selected Quotes from the Report

'Innovation [within pharma] is a lot like a fine Swiss watch. There are multiple moving parts but if you take one part out, the watch stops. So every part in that watch is absolutely critical to the functioning of that watch in the same way that every key stakeholder group within the innovation ecosystem has a critical role. Whether it be a payer, a physician, a company, a policy maker, a scientist, etc. They all have a role to play and if they stop playing that role, the system falls over.' Former Head of Innovation, Eli Lilly.

'Collaboration is your key for survival for the future. You cannot always count on the old model of finding solutions inside your own company.' Global Head of External Innovation & Strategic Partnerships, Roche.

'If we had a shorter, faster, more efficient regulatory system, then the cost [and time taken] to complete clinical trials would go down. I think we need to re-think how it could be smarter, more efficient. At the moment, the regulatory system is set up to benefit big pharma, not smaller companies.' Scientific Advisor, Innogen Institute.

'My view is that biopharma companies need to be more receptive to new models of innovation, and that includes more collaborations, more discussions, sharing of data. I'm not a big believer of we [the biopharma industry] are better than everyone else and we know better, so I think that being open to the environment is really important.' Head of Innovation at Merck Serono.

'Do we have a secret sauce [when it comes to innovation]? I don't know. I think it's the willingness to take a little bit of risk in that space. I think understanding that as good as we have been in the past, it wasn't enough. We knew that that landscape was clearly changing and under some great leadership, we were able to move into a completely new system. Good people like to follow good leaders so that's certainly a part of it.' VP Strategy & Operations, Janssen R&D.

'My personal opinion is that the time of the very, very large pharma companies is maybe already over. They're not dynamic enough to react very quickly to changing and dynamic patient needs, so smaller conglomerates of people who throw their expertise into one bucket and do that quickly might win over large pharma companies.' Senior Manager, Boehringer Ingelheim.

About FirstView Reports

FirstWord's FirstView Stakeholder Perspectives: Innovation within the Biopharma Industry is the first of a new series of authoritative analyses that focus on the drivers and resistors of innovation within the biopharma industry.

Innovation is the life blood of the industry, yet the cost of developing and bringing new products to market is spiralling. The series will forensically examine and answer fundamental questions such as:

- As the market moves away from blockbusters to 'niche-busters', how can industry and regulators bring new products to market that are not only safe and effective, but also affordable?

- Is the current clinical trials system still fit for purpose, or does industry and the regulators need to develop innovative, more efficient ways of establishing the clinical utility of new medicines?

- Are the advances in personalised medicine already witnessed only the tip of the iceberg, or have we seen all there is to offer in the field of stratified medicine?

- Are biosimilars set to take the market by storm and deliver on the promise of high quality, affordable biologics for all, or will the sector crumble under the weight of its own expectations?

- 'Beyond the Pill.' Do you have a strategy? Do you need one? And how influential will payers be when it comes to the impact of 'beyond the pill' solutions on biopharma revenues?

The pharmaceutical industry is on the verge of significant change. Old biopharma business models are under significant stress, and things need to change. Make sure you understand the potential strategic implications of these upcoming changes with FirstWord's FirstView Reports!
