While there are some success stories in the industry, a number of players are having trouble dealing with the volatile nature of biotechnologies. Research and development costs are extremely high, and the success of a product can sometimes not be measured until late in development. According to Krishan Maggon, a Geneva-based pharmaceuticals consultant, the number of new biotech drugs approved in the U.S. has remained in the 20 to 25 range during the past four years, while in Europe the figure was a record-low 14 last year.
