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.

BioSante is a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on developing products for female sexual health and oncology. Earlier this month shares of the company got a boost after it announced that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will review an application for a testosterone gel it developed and then licensed to a unit of Teva Pharmaceutical Industries. BioSante will receive milestone payments and royalties upon commercialization.

Exelixis also saw its share price surge this month after reports from Bloomberg surfaced claiming that the Exelixis hired Goldman Sachs to handle potential takeover bids following the company's positive results in a study of its experimental prostate cancer treatment, cabozantinib.
