Battling Cancer


Innovations driving the war on cancer

Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide, and the number of new cases is expected to rise by about 70 percent over the next two decades.[1] In the U.S., more than half a million people die from cancer which claims one of every four deaths, making it the second leading cause of death after heart disease, according to Centers for Disease Control. As more cancer drugs are approved in the U.S. than anywhere else, it is no wonder that it also pays the highest bills for cancer drugs.[2] Having reached $100 billion in annual sales, the global market for cancer drugs could reach $147 billion by 2018.[3] Meanwhile, the cost per month for a new cancer drug has jumped 40 percent to nearly $6,000, over the past decade.[4] However you look at it, cancer drugs and innovations in the pipeline are creating significant opportunities in the pharmaceutical and biotech sectors.
