Research Report on Gilead Sciences, Inc. and Bristol-Myers Squibb Company - New Innovations Facilitate Recovery

MACAU--(Marketwire - Jul 20, 2011) - Today, announced its research report highlighting Gilead Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: GILD) and Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (NYSE: BMY). Full content and research is available at

This sector demonstrates renewed investor interest as new and lucrative therapies come to market. The FDA approved the first new drug in 50 years to treat the auto-immune disorder lupus in March 2011, and we expect approval of new treatments for the Hepatitis C virus around mid-year. The 2010 health care reform act authorized by the FDA, will establish a regulatory pathway for approving "biosimilar" drugs, which in turn will increase production and shorten FDA approval times. Pharmaceuticals should remain one of the widest-margin industries, with prospects enhanced by demographic growth in the elderly and new drugs stemming from discoveries in genomics and biotechnology.
