IMS Health, a leading research and analytical firm serving the pharmaceutical and medical industries, projects an increase in worldwide biotech growth in 2011 of between 5 and 7 percent, with a similar outlook stretching out to 2015. Emerging markets such as China, India, and Brazil are expected to contribute significantly to this growth. Sales growth of 15 percent is forecast in emerging markets, many of which are benefitting from increased government spending on healthcare and broader private health coverage for workers.

Cell Therapeutics recently said that it will spend $10 million to buy rights to an anti-cancer drug owned by Chroma Therapeutics. Cell Therapeutics said that in trials, Chroma's drug had "demonstrated significant anti-tumor responses in blood related cancers and solid tumors."

Cell Therapeutics has its own potential blockbuster drug working its way through the regulatory process. Although the company's "pixantrone" drug for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma failed to gain FDA approval last year, CTIC is preparing to start a new clinical trial of the drug.
