NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 10, 2011) - The biotech industry is generating significant investor interest this year as an influx of new and lucrative therapies work their way towards regulatory approval. Although younger, unprofitable firms are having difficulty securing funding, reports suggest biotech companies with promising pipelines should be able to secure necessary capital. The Bedford Report examines the outlook for companies in the biotechnology industry and provides equity research on Avanir Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVNR) and Cyclacel Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

According to a recent report from Ernst & Young, US biotech companies raised $25 billion last year -- a 15 percent jump over the previous year and the highest amount since 2007. Of concern is that more than 82 percent of that funding went to 20 percent of the companies. Younger, unprofitable companies in the US that depend on funding from venture capital firms, stock sales and partnerships saw available capital decline 21 percent in 2010.
