A review of developments in cutting-edge technologies such as genomics, gene therapy and RNAi is provided. Drivers of biotech products targeted towards cancer, infectious diseases, cardiovascular diseases and orphan drugs is a particularly practical segment of this program. This course illustrates financial analysis by providing a Product Pipeline Table, a Pipeline Valuation, a Biotech Company Revenue Projection, and a Comparable Company Table. The following are among the issues discussed during this webinar: How can an analyst gain insight into the progress that a drug application is making (or failing to make) in the early phases of the drug approval process? How much weight should an analyst place on the recommendations of independent review panels when a drug is being reviewed for final FDA approval or rejection? What should an analyst look for when reviewing composition of matter patents? When reviewing therapeutic use patents? How import are forward and backward citations in determining the quality of a biotech company’s patents? What kind of market surveillance reporting is required under Phase 4 of the FDA approval process? What impact might a biotech’s dosing regimen have on the success of a new drug? What impact might a biotech’s conflicts with other drugs have on the success of a new drug? How telling is the quality of a biotech company’s board on the success of such biotech company’s drugs? When can a biotech company be sued even if its drugs have gone through the FDA’s approval process?
