It also comes as emergig market coutries seek to develop their ow biotech sectors ad costruct their ow regulatory regimes, istead of cotiuig to look to regulators i the ad Europe to rule o the safety ad efficacy of drugs as proxies. Joe Damod, seior vice presidet for iteratioal affairs for BIO, says the policy priorities represet areas that the orgaizatio expects to follow-up o with more detailed documets to be made available to authorities seekig to establish regulatory, patet, reimbursemet ad other policies. What we wated to do was create a tool we could share with govermets ad say, If you are really iterested i creatig a positive eviromet for biotech R&D ad iovatio, et cetera, these are what we thik are some of the policies you should adopt, he says. Whe coutries embrace biotechology, as i the case of Idia, the absece of coheret ad cosistet policies ca udermie their efforts. Cosider Bayer s experiece with its fight i Idia over a compulsory licese for its kidey cacer drug Nexavar. The Idia patet appeals board rejected the compay s effort to reverse the Idia Cotroller Geeral of Patets decisio to issue a compulsory licese allowig Natco Pharma to make geeric versios of the drug. Natco will sell the drug for $176 a moth ad pay Bayer a 6 percet royalty. That compares to the $5,600 a moth Bayer charged for the drug. The appeals board said the patet agecy acted correctly because Bayer failed to offer the drug at reasoably affordable prices. Bayer cotiues to fight the decisio ad is hopig the High Court i Mumbai will reverse it. Damo admits the lack of a coheret policymakig process is a challege i may coutries. I Idia, he otes, health agecies take actios like this. At the same time, ecoomic developmet agecies ad people close to the prime miister are tryig to promote the biotech sector. That, he says, seds mixed messages as to whether Idia is serious about buildig its idustry there. That saves Idia a few millio dollars a year supposedly. O the other had, what you ve basically doe is sed a sigal to the idustry that it s a very dagerous place to do busiess ad iovate ad to develop products, says Damod. Is it really worth that tradeoff if you are lookig coheretly at your govermet s strategy? Oe area of focus for the trade group is itellectual property rights. Some coutries have weak itellectual property protectios for ew molecules. Others, says Damod, have weak patet laws, weak eforcemet of patet laws, or weak data protectio. He says i some cases coutries do this by desig because they wat to promote a geerics idustry or a potetial biosimilars idustry. Aother area of cocer is regulatory policy. Some emergig markets are i the process of buildig out ad developig their ow regulatory regimes istead of relyig o regulators i the Uited States or Europe to decide o the safety ad efficacy of a drug ad use them as proxies. They are seekig to develop their ow regulatory capacity, i part, sice as they grow their ow idustry they will face approvals of drugs that have ot sought approval elsewhere. There s also a icreasig desire to produce more biologics i these markets, particularly biosimilars, which requires the creatio of a regulatory pathway ad the developmet of expertise. The best time to ifluece regulatory process is whe it s beig developed, says Damod. Oce a coutry develops its system, it s very difficult to uravel. What you ve basically doe is sed a sigal to the idustry that it s a very dagerous place to do busiess ad iovate ad to develop products Is it really worth that tradeoff? Joe Damod, Seior vice presidet for iteratioal affairs, BIO Last, there is pricig ad reimbursemet for ew drugs. That s bee a log stadig issue i may developed coutries, particularly i Europe, where austerity measures are addig to fiacial pressures o healthcare systems. But it s also a issue i emergig markets, where authorities are wrestlig with how to reimbursemet ew medicies as well. Gle Giovaetti, Global Life Scieces Sector Leader for Erst & Youg, says that while all of these issues are importat, he would put market access at the top of his list. I that cotext, he says it s ot just a matter of what s the fast way to get your drug o the market, but also how you get paid for it. What s the coversatio about the reimbursemet of medicies ad what s the appropriate measure of value? say Giovaetti. I may markets we are at a tippig poit where it s importat to demostrate the value of a product to a payer. It s o what basis that coversatio will be had that is critical. April

4 Moth i Review (cotiued from page 1) tha a scalpel. The uwilligess to make difficult decisios ad reach compromise will harm iovatio, weake our ecoomic stregth, ad delay patiets access to ew medicies. The evolvig situatio i Washigto comes agaist a backdrop of weakeed fiacig activity for the life scieces sector i February, a moth i which activity fell dramatically from levels a year ago. Global veture fiacigs for life scieces compaies totaled $582 millio i February, a 47 percet declie from the same period a year ago ad the lowest mothly activity i two years. The cacer immuotherapies developer Jouce Therapeutics, which raised $47 millio i a series A roud, was the largest veture fiacig for the moth. O the public fiacig side, total global fiacig trasactios for life scieces compaies i February reached a aemic $865 millio, a 78 percet drop from the $3.9 billio for the same period a year ago. IPOs, PIPEs, followos, ad debt offerigs all slowed dramatically. I fact, the oly IPO completed i February occurred i Japa for the cardiovascular therapeutics compay MedRx, which raised $23.6 millio. I the Uited States, the success of the Zoetis IPO failed to produce coattails for other life scieces compaies. Persoalized geomics-based cacer diagostics maker Cacer Geetics postpoed its IPO ad the molecular diagostics compay AutoGeomics withdrew its IPO. Four compaies did add themselves to the IPO queue i February, givig some hope for a pick-up i activity. These icluded Tetraphase Pharmaceuticals, Ambit Bioscieces, Sophiris Bio, ad the cotract research orgaizatio Quitiles, which filed for a $600 millio IPO. Global M&A activity rose i February, thaks i part to Bioge Idec s acquisitio of the rights to the multiple sclerosis drug Tysabri from its parter Ela for $3.2 billio plus future royalties o the drug. Royalty Pharma is seekig to buy Ela s royalties for Tysabri for $6.6 billio. Ela s maagemet has ot respoded to the offer, but Royalty is takig its bid directly to the compay s shareholders. Reviewers at the Food ad Drug Admiistratio approved three iovative therapies i February, brigig the 2013 total to five. Amog the highest profile approvals this moth was Roche ad Immuoge s T-DM1. The therapy will be sold as Kadcyla for the treatmet of HER2-positive, metastatic breast cacer ad was reviewed uder the FDA s priority review program. Kadcyla is a atibodydrug cojugate that pairs Hercepti with a powerful chemotherapy aget. The combiatio delivers the therapy directly to the tumor cells, bypassig healthy cells. Other drugs approved i February icluded Celgee s Pomalyst for the treatmet of multiple myeloma; ad QuatRx Pharmaceuticals ad Shioogi s Ophea for the treatmet of vulvar ad vagial atrophy due to meopause. The idustry will cotiue to keep its eyes o Washigto as the impacts of sequestratio play out. The public has become weary of maufactured crises ad accustomed to dysfuctio i Washigto, but actio will eed to be take. We are payig a price as a atio for our iability to reach a cosesus. Lawmakers eed to uderstad what s at stake, both i terms of our ecoomic competitiveess ad the eeds of people sufferig with disease. Democrats Take Aim at Affordable Care Act Republicas fid ew allies agaist the medical device tax ad Medicare cost-cuttig board By MICHAEL FITZHUGH With the law ow safe from wholesale repeal, Democrats have bee icreasigly willig to speak out agaist aspects of the complex legislatio. Whe the Patiet Protectio ad Affordable Care Act was first siged ito law i 2010, the loudest voices opposig it were Republica. What Democratic oppositio there was to its provisios was muted as the debate fractured alog party lies. But followig Presidet Obama s November reelectio ad the Supreme Court s decisio to uphold the law, the ature of the debate is chagig. With the law ow safe from wholesale repeal, Democrats have bee icreasigly willig to raise their voices to speak out agaist aspects of the complex legislatio that they would like to get rid of. Chief amog their targets have bee the medical device tax, a tax o maufacturers ad importers of regulated medical devices, ad the Idepedet Paymet Advisory Board, a fiftee-member agecy created to achieve savigs i Medicare without affectig coverage or quality. Both have bee sore poits with idustry, which has log sought to remove them from the legislatio. I March, Democratic Seator Amy Klobuchar of Miesota, home to several large medical device compaies, led the charge with Utah Republica Orri Hatch to pass a amedmet to the Fiscal 2014 Seate Budget Resolutio expressig support for repeal of the medical device tax. Uderscorig the bipartisa support for device tax repeal efforts, eight Democratic seators co-sposored the amedmet, which passed with 79 votes. The tax is a burde o medical device busiesses, but, most importatly, it is a disicetive for jobs, said Klobuchar durig a address o the Seate floor before the March 21 vote. It stifles iovatio ad it makes it more difficult for the ext geeratio of lifesavig devices to make it to the market. I the House, some Democrats have also backed a effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act s Idepedet Paymet Advisory Board, which is charged with idetifyig ways to cut Medicare spedig as early as Jauary 15, 2014, if the per capita Medicare spedig rate is expected to exceed a ecoomic growth rate over a five-year period. The pharmaceutical idustry has bee cocered that madates to make spedig cuts would lead to price cotrols o drugs. Leavig some reimbursemet decisios i the hads of a isular, bureaucratic pael that uses a process that limits stakeholder participatio will have a egative impact o patiet access to care, ad could impede the doctorpatiet relatioship, say Jim Greewood, presidet ad CEO of BIO.

6 Tax (cotiued) Board s Democratic detractors is Rep. Bill Pascrell, D-New Jersey, home to may pharmaceutical compaies. He has fought to repeal the creatio of the board, which is scheduled to begi meetig April 30. I have cocers with IPAB, icludig how it will operate, ad that it gives up importat Cogressioal authority over pricig, says Pascrell. Abdicatig our resposibility is ot the right thig to do for our seiors. Although 20 Democrats had co-sposored the bill, Pascrell ad others recetly voted agaist legislatio that would have repealed the board because Republicas tied it to what some felt was a poiso pill, a provisio that would have also capped malpractice settlemets at $250,000. The fate of both the device tax ad Idepedet Paymet Advisory Board seems icreasigly tied to other issues as politicias o each side of the aisle itegrate legislatio iteded to repeal them with other provisios with broader impacts, such as cap o malpractice settlemets. Both items are upopular eough that support for repeal might succeed i a straight up vote i the House, says Tevi Troy, seior fellow at the Hudso Istitute. If it was a more complex vote that had must-pass legislatio attached such as a cotiuig resolutio, sequestratio fix, or debt ceilig hike the there might be more of a challege, he says. A Geeratio at Risk Savig sciece dollars demads attetio to detail, teamwork, creativity like sciece itself By SHERYL P. DENKER Sequestratio is addig to the squeeze o federal fudig of scietific research, but fast maeuverig by key seators may preserve some of the 1,000 ew grats that the Natioal Sciece Foudatio iitially projected would be lost due to the automated budget cuts. By providig a detailed 2013 NSF budget, Seator Barbara Mikulski, D-Marylad, workig together with Seator Richard Shelby, R-Alabama, was able to get fudig for the NSF out of the cotiuig resolutio bill ad ito a regular appropriatios budget bill, providig the programs greater fudig. Mikulski is chair of the committee that cotrols the budget for NSF ad other sciece agecies. Not oly will fewer ew grats be lost tha the NSF iitially projected, but there will also be less egative impact o the early-career scietists, graduate studets, ad postdocs that NSF has said are a priority. It is those studets ad ewly mited scietists that will be hit by dimiishig federal fuds for biomedical sciece research, says Carrie Wolietz, associate vice presidet for federal relatios at the Associatio of America Uiversities, a group of 62 leadig public ad private research uiversities i the ad Caada. Our big cocer is the impact o the ext geeratio of scietists, ot oly o the real umber of decreased grad studets ad post-docs but also o the difficult-to-quatify discouragemet factor, says Wolietz. Kowig that perhaps oly oe out of six grats will get fuded, it will be difficult for uiversities to attract talet. It takes decades to recover from that. I the short term faculty ad idustry might ot feel it but i the log term, especially for the M.D./ Ph.D. researchers, so critical to bech to bedside work, it will be a sigificat impact. It s hard to retai those studets without prospect of a future research career. Mikulski set fudig for NSF s research equal to the presidet s 2013 budget submissio, a 5.2 percet icrease over Her fudig of early $6 billio is $50 millio above a earlier Seate guidelie ad $100 millio above the House of Represetatives guidelie. She also added $20 millio to the presidet s request for NSF s educatio directorate, makig that budget $896 millio, ad she added $5 millio to Advaced Techological Educatio, which supports commuity ad 2-year colleges, requestig NSF to pull that moey from other educatio activities. Clearly she ad others are worried about the impact of decliig sciece dollars o the ext geeratio. Fracis Collis, director of the Natioal Istitutes of Health, is also cocered about the log-term impact of the fudig cuts o a ew geeratio of scietists. The curret geeratio foud out sciece is cool, but if they do t perceive a trajectory ad stable pathway, they may decide to do somethig else. The curret message is ucertai give the path we are o, he said durig a recet celebratio of sciece pael. To chage our trajectory, Kevi Wilso, director of public policy for the America Society for Cell Biology, says it s importat to chage the way the academic scietific commuity looks at thigs. The iroy is that whe budgets are tight, everyoe goes to their corer versus comig together, he says. While these parterships have improved i recet years, there is a iheret tesio i the priorities of diverse sciece groups whe talkig to legislators that makes achievig this ideal difficult. Academics wat research dollars ad traiig programs, so the NIH is frot ad ceter for them. Pharma wats FDA ad patet reform, NIH is ot their top priority. May smallto mid-size biotechs are focused o stayig i busiess. Some thik the scietific commuity could lear a few thigs from the military o how to creatively cotrol ad chage the message delivered to legislators ad the public. Orgaizatios such as Uited for Medical Research are tryig to do just that. The group works to esure that i the future NIH gets the iflatio-adjusted fudig it deserves ad is comprised of leadig research istitutios across the atio, patiet ad health advocates, ad private compaies such as Corig, Life Techologies, ad Thermo Fisher Scietific. Sice federal agecies dedicate various proportios of their total expeditures to R&D fudig, across the board sequester cuts have diverse impacts o the R&D i each agecy. At oe ed of the spectrum is the NIH, dedicatig a overwhelmig 97 percet of total expeditures to R&D, with 54 percet of that goig to basic research. Uited for Medical Research s recet aalysis of what the NIH does for the Uited States, i terms of the ecoomic retur o the taxpayer s ivestmet, shows that i 2012 the NIH supported early 402,000 jobs ad $57 billio i ecoomic output. A 5.1 percet across the board cut o NIH fudig, the group determied, traslates to a estimated loss of 20,500 jobs, $3 billio i ew ecoomic activity, ad $1.12 billio i NIH grat awards. Scietists ad researchers are traied ot to report egative data. But hopefully this time the data s bad eough for the atio ad its future to get some attetio. April

7 U.K. Moves Toward Value-Based Pricig of Medicies As deadlie looms, cocer grows over how policy will affect iovatio By MARIE DAGHLIAN As the U.K. Departmet of Health ad the Associatio of British Pharmaceutical Idustries meet to iro out a framework for a ew, value-based pricig scheme for prescriptio drugs, there is cocer that the approach may ot sufficietly fulfill the govermet s itetio of deliverig value to patiets ad the Natioal Health Service while simultaeously ecouragig iovatio. Though the govermet ad idustry both agree that a broader assessmet of the value of ew drugs is eeded, the idustry is cocered about the evetual impact the ew rules may have. We are ot coviced that value-based pricig will ecourage iovatio or reward the most effective medicies, says Associatio of British Pharmaceutical Idustries Chief Executive Stephe Whitehead. I fact, we are cocered that value-based pricig could i fact stifle iovatio because it will struggle to accurately reflect the iheret gradual ad icremetal ature of iovatio. The ew value-based pricig system is part of a overhaul of the Natioal Health Service, first aouced i 2010, with a fial bill passed i March 2012 as the govermet s Health & Social Care Bill. Although the ew pricig scheme will apply primarily to ew drugs itroduced i 2014 ad beyod, some older drugs, especially those curretly fuded by the Cacer Drugs Fud will also receive ew determiatios. While the govermet s stated goal is to stimulate iovatio ad the developmet of high-value treatmets i the coutry, improve patiet access to medicies, ad achieve better value for the Natioal Health Service, its secodary objective is to rei i the risig cost of healthcare. Value-based pricig is a method for determiig what the NHS will pay for a drug based o its perceived value to the Natioal Health Service rather tha o the actual cost of the product, market or historical price, says the UK BioIdustry Associatio, a idustry trade group. But with the ew system expected to replace the 50-year-old volutary Pharmaceutical Price Regulatio Scheme at the start of 2014, it is still uclear how value will be measured. The value attached to braded medicies uder the curret scheme is determied by the Natioal Istitute for Health ad Cliical Excellece use of the Quality Adjusted Life Year, or QALY, which has come uder repeated attack by the pharmaceutical idustry ad patiet groups as limitig access to ew drugs. I part, that s because NICE has set a aual cost limit of $30,437 ( 20,000) to $45,656 ( 30,000) per QALY. A Europea Commissio-fuded report issued i Jauary 2013, foud the QALY flawed as a way to assess the value of ew medicies. While NICE objected to the limited scope of the study, the idustry hailed it as a reaso to chage the status quo. This research shows why NICE so ofte delivers coclusios that are out of step with other bodies ad ca udermie cliical work i the U.K. ad most importatly dey U.K. patiets i eed access to ew ad prove treatmets, said Whitehead. Value-based pricig is a attractive otio at the superficial level, says Alistair Ket, director of patiet advocacy group Geetic Alliace UK ad chair of Rare Disease UK. The rhetoric is attractive movig to medicies that provide sigificat beefit for umet eed that ca also commad sigificatly higher prices. But delvig ito the details makes it more complicated. Ket says that it s ot yet clear what is meat by value ad who determies the price that is set. I order to establish value, he says, you have to talk to patiets ad care givers as ot everythig carries equal weight. He worries the Departmet of Health has a simplistic otio of value. Ket cites a example of a colleague with a rare coditio that requires ezyme replacemet therapy to icrease her lug fuctio by 4 percet. While this may seem small, it allows may hours durig the day whe she does t have to breathe through a oxyge mask, allowig her to coverse ad iteract i a ormal way with others. The quality of life improvemet is sigificat. His hope is that such wider social beefits curretly ot a compoet of QALYbased pricig will be cosidered i the ew value-based scheme. For example, if I am sick ad a medicie I take makes it possible for my wife who has bee carig for me to go back to work, this is ot factored ito the curret determiatio because it is outside the cotext of the healthcare system, says Ket. But perhaps the biggest cocer of patiet groups ad idustry is the short timelie before the ew system is madated to take effect, a cocer that is amplified because a umber of issues still remai uclear. These iclude how a U.K.-oly value-based pricig structure will: impact iovatio; iteract with wider NHS reforms ad a ew commissioig structure; ad iteract with the curret, predictable, price regulatio scheme system through the trasitio phase ad beyod. The UK BioIdustry Associatio ad others are cocered that the govermet is tryig to istitute too may chages at oce. The ew healthcare law calls for a sigificat reorgaizatio ad reductio of staff at the Natioal Health Service, which has a budget of about $180 billio ( 120 billio) a year. Ket says the umber of employees is to be cut to about 3,500 from 8,000 today. The Departmet of Health ad the Associatio of British Pharmaceutical Idustries is expected to uveil a valuebased pricig framework at the ed of March. Whether or ot the ew system will be better tha the oe curretly i place is beig kept uder wraps for ow. Patiet groups have bee meetig with both parties to let them kow what is importat to them. It is widely hoped that the ew system will take wider social beefits ito accout ad will more closely reflect a evidece-based approach that may provide reimbursemet for ew medicies cotiget o the collectio of data o outcomes that would be aalyzed at a later period ad used to egotiate their values.

18 February Statistics M&A: Bioge Buys Tysabri Rights for $3.3 Billio As Ela opts for cash ad royalties, Royalty Pharma makes $6.6 billio bid By MARIE DAGHLIAN Te days after Bioge Idec said it would pay Ela $3.3 billio plus cotiget royalty paymets ragig from 18 percet to 25 percet begiig i 2014 to gai full cotrol of their multiple sclerosis drug Tysabri, Royalty Pharma aouced it had made a usolicited offer to acquire Ela Pharmaceuticals for $6.6 billio. So far, Ela maagemet has subbed the deal, istead offerig to distribute $1 billio of the cash it will get from sellig Tysabri rights to Our motivatio was to diversify ad de-risk the compay to move forward; ad for the patiets to cotiue to beefit from the profoud efficacy of Tysabri. The risk of oe asset ad a sigle collaborator was ot ideal. Kelly Marti, CEO, Ela its shareholders. It has also said it will sped about $1 billio i acquisitios to stregthe its portfolio ad use the rest of the cash to pay dow debt. The deal betwee Bioge ad Ela, aouced February 6, will ed their previous equal sharig of global profits ad a chage of cotrol provisio that was part of their origial agreemet o Tysabri. Global sales of Tysabri reached $1.6 billio i 2012 ad have bee growig at a aual compouded rate of 37 percet over the past five years. Bioge hopes to develop it for other idicatios such as secodary progressive MS ad stroke. Due to the rare possibility of a fatal brai ifectio, Tysabri is curretly recommeded oly for patiets who have failed other therapies. Bioge ad Ela just recetly submitted applicatios to ad Europea regulators for permissio to market the drug as a first-lie therapy, sayig they had foud a way to idetify patiets at risk for the brai ifectio. I a coferece call followig the aoucemet of the deal, George Scagos, CEO of Bioge Idec, said the ratioale for takig full cotrol was to further stregthe Bioge s MS frachise, which also icludes the ijectable drug Avoex ad the ivestigatioal oral drug Tecfidera, curretly uder review by the Food ad Drug Admiistratio. He said he does t expect the deal to chage pipelie priorities. Do t take this cofidece i Tysabri as a lack of cofidece i ay other part of our portfolio, Scagos said. Bioge will use existig offshore cash reserves to pay for the deal, which is structured as a asset acquisitio that comes with sigificat tax advatages. These iclude the ability to amortize the purchase, which will save the compay about $40 millio to $50 millio aually. The sales-based cotiget royalty paymets are also tax-deductible. The deal will be immediately accretive to earigs, will provide operatioal syergies, ad will simplify strategic decisiomakig. For Ela, the deal provides tax efficiet capital ad log-term cash flow. The restructurig of this busiess collaboratio provides Ela with sigificat strategic flexibility, said Kelly Marti, CEO of Ela. Our motivatio was to diversify ad de-risk the compay to move forward; ad for the patiets to cotiue to beefit from the profoud efficacy of Tysabri. The risk of oe asset ad a sigle collaborator was ot ideal, he said. Because Tysabri accouted for most of Ela s reveue, it left the pharmaceutical with a lot of cash ad o pipelie. As ivestors waited to see what compay maagemet plaed to do with all the cash, Royalty Pharma met with Ela to propose a sale of the compay to the buyer of pharmaceutical reveue streams. Royalty Pharma derives its reveue by buyig a iterest i royalty streams, ad to date has purchased iterests i several high-profile drugs, such as Gilead Scieces HIV drugs Truvada, Emtriva, ad Atripla, ad Abbott s arthritis drug Humira, amog others. At a shareholder meetig two days after Royalty Pharma met with compay officials, Ela s maagemet outlied its pla to retur $1 billio to shareholders, refiace its existig debt, ad make several acquisitios to fill its pipelie. It did ot metio the acquisitio offer, so Royalty Pharma wet directly to shareholders, proposig to buy Ela for $11 a share, a premium of 6.3 percet to the closig share price of Ela stock o February 15, 2013, before the private offer to maagemet. The deal, says Royalty Pharma, offers Ela Shareholders a attractive fiacial alterative that will allow them to realize value for their Ela Stock i cash immediately ad elimiate the executio risk associated with idetifyig, acquirig, itegratig ad growig attractive assets i the cotext of a highly competitive strategic ladscape. The alterative choice, accordig to Royalty Pharma, is to remai a ivestor i a compay with virtually o assets except for cash ad the Tysabri royalty, with expected operatig expeses i the rage of $170 millio to $190 millio i the ext year, ad the risk iheret i ivestig i yet-to-be disclosed busiess assets. Ela s board respoded to the public takeover offer by callig it opportuistic ad highly coditioal. It oted that it had bee workig for more tha a year o several strategic trasactios that it felt could be more beeficial to shareholders. Returig capital through share repurchase, diversifyig busiess ad asset risk/reward through o-traditioal busiess structures while simultaeously capturig the log term high margi royalty icome from Tysabri will offer a compellig ivestmet thesis for our curret shareholders, Ela s board said i its respose. As of this writig, it still remais to be see how the deal will play out.
