Oncologics Drove FDA’s 2012 Novel Approval Count To 15-Year High

Executive Summary

With 45 new molecular entities and novel biologics cleared in 2012, FDA approvals have reached a level not seen since the mid-90s, the golden age of modern medicine.

Big pharma contributed just over a third of the 2012 class, with Pfizer regaining the lead with five novel approvals.
