The Maybach Financial Group ( will be researching the above-mentioned companies to determine their chances of a turnaround opportunity for investors.

Samaritan Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (AMEX: LIV) has a goal of being an entrepreneurial biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and marketing of innovative therapeutics including the development and commercialization of their HIV entry inhibitor drug SP-01A. They recently received the second upfront payment of $8.6M under their agreement earlier this year with a private Irish healthcare company.

In the future, the approach that companies pursue will depend in large measure upon their individual goals.

Samaritan's main focus is the central nervous system diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease; cancer; cardiovascular disease; and infectious diseases, such as AIDS and Hepatitis C.

Questcor Pharmaceuticals Inc. (AMEX: QSC) has a goal which is simply a quest for better health. The company has shifted its focus to developing drugs that treat central nervous system (CNS) disorders. Its primary product is H.P. Acthar Gel, a therapy for multiple sclerosis.

Pharmaceutical and life sciences companies are among the most analysed and evaluated organisations in business today. Over the course of this decade, scientists are predicting a dramatic change over the innovation and use of drugs.

Sinovac Biotech Ltd. (AMEX: SVA) is one of the leading emerging biotechnology companies in China. They specialize in the research, development, commercialization, and sales of human vaccines for infectious illnesses such as Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B, influenza and "SARS."

In the battle for supremacy with big shot companies such as Pfizer, the juniors involved within this particular sector have a lot of leverage as these big companies continue to invest and scan for new patents, licenses, and drugs.

It's a tough world out there for big pharmaceuticals, but it helps the junior world move forward.

Something to bear in mind is that only a small fraction of the public could name any company that develops vaccines to prevent an epidemic (4%), provides medicines or medical equipment in case of a major disaster (7%), or contributes to patient assistance programs (14%).

Despite a new loyal following for new age ideas and a "greener" life using organics and natural cures, the view on innovative drugs remains strong. If pharmaceutical companies could raise awareness of their philanthropic actions, they would undoubtedly make gains in countering negative feelings toward the sector.
