“In the assessment of scientific innovativeness, of the 118 drugs considered to be scientifically novel, 51.5 WDEs (44%) were attributed to pharmaceutical companies, and 66.5 WDEs (56%) were attributed either to biotechnology companies (29.9 WDEs; 25%) or universities (36.6 WDEs; 31%) … Thus, biotechnology companies and universities provided more than half of the discovery contribution to scientifically innovative drugs.”
