The report, authored by the economic and public policy firm TClower & Associates, shows that California is home to over 12,000 life science establishments, including academic institutions and both small and large businesses. Organizations in California received nearly $3.6 billion in funding from the National Institutes of Health during 2016, the largest value in grants of all 50 states. According to the report, Los Angeles County is home to more than 2,400 individual establishments in the life science industry, including 103 biopharmaceutical companies, 436 medical device and diagnostic companies and 787 research and lab support institutions. The industry employs nearly 70,000 people, generates $40.3 billion in county economic output and increases labor income by $11.9 billion. Its local establishments were awarded over $890 million in NIH research awards in the 2016 fiscal year. "The Los Angeles life science industry is in a growth phase, with particular strength in biopharmaceuticals and life science wholesale trade," said Dina Lozofsky, executive director of Biocom's Los Angeles office. "We are under-recognized as a cluster, perhaps because our 2,400 industry establishments are spread out throughout the county instead of having a natural hub, but Los Angeles county brings in more NIH dollars to California than any other county in the state, and we have distinct strength in manufacturing in life sciences, hearkening to Los Angeles' historical strength in manufacturing." With 1,200 unique life science establishments, San Diego County's life science industry provides nearly 50,000 jobs and supports 133,000 jobs in the county, for a total countywide impact of more than 183,000 jobs. It generates $33.6 billion in economic output and adds $19.4 billion to the local gross product. Life science establishments brought over $832 million in NIH grants to San Diego during the 2016 fiscal year. Importantly to the region, San Diego boasts a location quotient of 1.98. Location quotients, determined by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, compare regional industry employment levels to the U.S. overall; and a figure greater than 1.2 indicates a competitive advantage. San Diego's level exceeds that, and has increased from 1.81 in 2011. Long recognized as a life science powerhouse, the nine counties that comprise Northern California's life science industry generate almost $114 billion in economic output, employ 96,000 people and support more than 302,000 jobs. It all adds up to a region-wide impact of nearly 400,000 jobs and contributes $68.6 billion per year to the state gross product. Northern California's 2,472 life science institutions are spread out among many counties with 500 establishments in Alameda County, 291 in San Francisco County, 367 in San Mateo County and 704 in Santa Clara County. "The life science industry, with its often near-philanthropic commitment to improving human health and the environment, is distinctly important to our economy and quality of life in California," Panetta said. "It's our vision at Biocom to empower all people in California — and across the county, frankly — to understand the important role of the life sciences in our state and to help the industry continue to prosper. As a unifying force for our state, Biocom is uniquely qualified to provide the tools to help each of California's life science hubs expand, leveraging their individual strengths and areas of focus."

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC--(Marketwired - April 27, 2017) - The majority (82%) of surveyed drug manufacturers reported conducting -- or planning to conduct -- observational studies last year, which has become more common, according to a study by business intelligence research company Cutting Edge Information. The data published in Post-marketing Study Excellence: Design Phase 4 Trials to Demonstrate Real-World Outcomes show that from 2014 to 2016, the frequency of surveyed firms conducting observational studies remained relative flat -- only a slight decrease from 84% to 82%. Compared to interventional trials, Phase 4 observational studies require less human and spending resources. Observational studies are those in which investigators are not required to influence or impact study participants. Instead, investigators look for the natural relationships between factors impacting the study population and specific outcomes. Observational trials allow pharmaceutical companies to gather valuable, descriptive real-world data. Companies use these post-marketing studies to gather information related to product usage patterns, cost-effectiveness and long-term effectiveness. "Because these trials don't have the complex elements related to traditional clinical trials or interventional studies, post-marketing teams can focus less time on investigator training," said Natalie DeMasi, research team leader at Cutting Edge Information. "Life science firms find observational studies particularly accessible compared to more involved experimental studies because the training timeline is shorter." Observational studies can look to both prospective and retrospective data to inform findings. Even prospective studies, which follow patients through a predetermined period of time, can call on retrospective data. In fact, the majority (60%) of surveyed life science companies used or included retrospective data in their Phase 4 observational studies. Despite their advantages, observational trials have drawbacks. Real-world data collected in observational studies have higher external validity but will probably not yield data with the internal validity that interventional studies have. Additionally, observational studies can be more complicated in terms of protocols and statistical analyses. Life science teams must weigh all these different considerations carefully when planning their post-marketing studies. Post-marketing Study Excellence: Design Phase 4 Trials to Demonstrate Real-World Outcomes, available at https://cuttingedgeinfo.com/product/phase-4-clinical-trials/, provides strategic insights and key performance metrics on post-marketing research ownership, spending and staffing levels, as well as trend analysis. Data are broken down for interventional and observational studies and the report outlines the effectiveness of study outcomes due to early planning.

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC--(Marketwired - May 17, 2017) - Life science firms allowing regional teams to design their own medical education strategies increase the risk of misaligned company strategies, according to a recently published study by business intelligence firm, Cutting Edge Information. The data in Medical Education: Innovating CME to Improve Patient Outcomes revealed that the majority (57%) of surveyed Top 10 company teams operate a decentralized approach. In a decentralized approach, medical education strategies are developed at the global and/or corporate level and regional teams have responsibility of implementing the strategies. Compared to other company types, only 33% of Top 50 company teams are decentralized, while zero percent of small company teams favor the decentralized approach. The overall message from a pharmaceutical company can be muddled if its medical education strategy is misaligned with other external-facing groups' strategies, such as medical publications and medical science liaisons (MSLs). On the other hand, allowing regional teams to set their own strategies ensures that medical education tactics fit well with local policies. For this reason, one surveyed Top 50 company executive reports putting external medical affairs groups into one team, ultimately promoting cohesion and strategic alignment. "No two medical education teams are identical," said Natalie DeMasi, research team leader at Cutting Edge Information. "As far as decision making goes, most teams surveyed have global teams set medical education strategy, but regional teams are allowed to modify these strategies to meet local needs." Alternatively, many Top 50 (43%) and most small company teams (83%) surveyed have partially centralized structures, according to the study. In this setup, the global/corporate team develops medical education strategy and hands it down to the regional teams. Regional teams then tweak these strategies to meet local needs and regulations. All (100%) surveyed Top 10 and Top 50 medical education teams allow regional teams to modify global strategies. Medical Education: Innovating CME to Improve Patient Outcomes, available at https://www.cuttingedgeinfo.com/product/medical-education/, includes detailed metrics, best practices and insights into four main areas of medical education: This report examines medical education investments and staffing resources, as well as activities, trends, and event planning approaches. It highlights new, exciting ways that teams are elevating the value of medical education.

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC--(Marketwired - May 23, 2017) - Market access teams across Top 10, Top 50 and small pharmaceutical companies are more likely to employ higher numbers of full-time equivalents (FTEs) to support government accounts compared to pharmacy accounts, according to a recently released study by business intelligence provider, Cutting Edge Information. Recent research published in Global Market Access Strategies: Building Payer Relationships Through Comprehensive Value Stories found that among surveyed companies with government account managers, the number of total staff ranges from 0.5 to 19 FTEs. By comparison, the study found that the few surveyed teams with pharmacy account managers employ between 1 and 2 FTEs. "Life science firms may require higher numbers of government account managers to address payers' market access needs thoroughly – both at national and regional levels," said Eric Bolesh, senior director of product development at Cutting Edge Information. "Typically, government account managers are employed to navigate complex administrative systems at the local level." Employing a higher number of government account managers is ideal for Top 10 and Top 50 pharmaceutical firms because they are more likely to interact with payers in countries that have fragmented market access structures. With the exception of one Top 10 company's group, which employs 19 government account managers, the study found that remaining surveyed teams at Top 10 and Top 50 organizations employ anywhere between 0.5 and 5 FTEs. Smaller medical and device company teams with government account managers in place each report employing a single FTE. Global Market Access Strategies: Building Payer Relationships Through Comprehensive Value Stories, available at https://www.cuttingedgeinfo.com/product/global-market-access-strategies/, explores emerging trends impacting market access teams and the best practices they implement to obtain better pricing and reimbursement around the world. The study contains detailed market access performance metrics, including ideal time frames for involving market access teams in supporting new product launches.

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwired - November 14, 2016) - Noble Life Science Partners, a division of Noble Financial Capital Markets (Noble) announced today that Nathan Cali, formerly Noble's specialty pharmaceuticals senior analyst, has moved to its investment banking department. The move was timed to coincide with Noble's Investor Conference -- NobleCon13 to be held at the Boca Raton Resort & Club, January 30-31, 2017. Life science companies represent a significant portion of the presenting company roster at the conference. The sector is so important to Noble that it moved the date of the 2017 NobleCon back by two weeks in order to avoid a conflict with the JP Morgan Healthcare Conference set for early January in San Francisco. Mr Cali joined Noble in 2008 after gaining experience at Andrx Pharmaceuticals and Franklin Templeton. "As a senior analyst at Noble, Nathan has exhibited a "nose" for finding compelling investment ideas and themes for investors," said Noble's CEO Nico P. Pronk. A good example is a company that was recently acquired -- Cynapsus Therapeutics, Inc. for $624 million USD. In 2013, when the company's market capitalization was only $13.9 million, Noble was the first to initiate equity research coverage. Since that time, Cali has published 30 Cynapsus research reports and the company has attended two NobleCon Conferences. Noble has also supported the company's growth in investor awareness through three rounds of financing totaling in excess of $100 million USD, and through numerous non-deal road shows targeting fundamental science-driven institutional investors. Cynapsus is not the only company that has shown substantial growth. For example, Cali initiated coverage of TherapeuticsMD in 2013 when its market capitalization was $200 million, today it hovers around $1.0 billion; Axogen has grown from $28 million since initiation of research coverage in 2012 to over $280 million today. Cali also was early in identifying opportunities in the Hepatitis C space; Pharmasset's market cap was $173 million when he initiated -- the company was purchased a few years later by Gilead for $11 billion, and; Inhibitex was acquired by Bristol Myers Squibb for $2.5 billion and had a market capitalization in 2009 of $13 million when Noble initiated coverage. Cali was also instrumental in the creation (co-founder) of Variant Pharmaceuticals; a private early-stage life sciences company that will be entering into Phase 1 studies on the path to the commercialization of products designed to treat rare progressive forms of kidney disease. Noble believes that Mr. Cali's strong analytical healthcare background will provide great value to corporations in need of financing and strategic advice, and will further enhance our investment banking capabilities in the Noble Life Science Partners division. About Noble Financial Capital Markets Noble Financial Capital Markets established in 1984, is an equity-research driven, full-service, investment & merchant banking boutique focused on the healthcare, media & entertainment, technology and natural resources sectors. The company has offices in Boca Raton (HQ), New York and Boston. In addition to the annual multi-sector NobleCon, each year Noble hosts numerous "non-deal" corporate road shows and sector-specific conferences such as the Media, Finance & Investor Conference offered in partnership with the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB).

Disruptive Software Startup Guides Researchers in Selecting Life Science Products for Experimentation with Objective, Peer-Reviewed Rating System -- an Industry-First PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 1, 2016) - Bioz, Inc., developers of the world's first search engine for life science experimentation, today announced the release of its latest Bioz Stars technology. Bioz Stars is a fully objective product rating system that accelerates scientific discovery. "Researchers have been asking for an easier eCommerce purchasing process for laboratory products that would provide simple, evidence-supported comparison between competing brands and products," stated Frost & Sullivan Senior Life Science Industry Analyst Christi Bird. "The Bioz Stars platform fills that void, serving as an ideal starting place for laboratories to research products." Bioz' proprietary, multi-parameter algorithmic rating system is based on over a billion data points that have been extracted from tens of millions of peer-reviewed scientific articles using advanced Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning (ML) technologies. The algorithm's parameters are weighted and normalized. The new Bioz Stars technology further enhances the industry's first and only unbiased rating system that is already in use by scientists around the world to help them quickly identify the best reagents, instruments, equipment and consumables for their experiments. The Bioz platform incorporates Bioz Star ratings to help guide researchers towards making the best, most well informed and transparent decisions possible, ensuring that their future experiments are better, quicker and more cost-effective. "The volume of reagents, consumables, equipment and instruments available for purchase is daunting," said Dr. Shai Saroussi, postdoctoral researcher at the Carnegie Institution at Stanford University. "With so many product options on the market from countless vendors, choosing the product that will work best in an experiment is painstaking. Once I started using the Bioz search engine, my research was transformed. Moreover, the integrated Bioz Stars product ratings are unbiased and based on millions of previously published peer-reviewed life science articles, allowing me to quickly and efficiently identify the best products for my experiments, helping me to conduct better, faster and more cost-effective research." Life science researchers in academia and biopharma spend $80 billion annually to purchase millions of products for their experiments -- from reagents to consumables to instruments and equipment. Many products, antibodies being a key example, have extremely high failure rates, leading to research delays and stalled drug discovery. Prior to Bioz Stars, there was not an easy way for researchers to either anticipate poorly performing and incompatible products, or to compare and select the best products to use in their specific assays and experiments. The new Bioz Stars technology release, available to users today, incorporates both new and enhanced rating parameters, including, but not limited to, the following: "The new features incorporated into our game-changing Bioz Stars rating system allow for unprecedented insights for life science researchers around the world who are planning their experiments," said Dr. Karin Lachmi, co-founder and chief scientific officer of Bioz. "At Bioz, we are continually looking for ways to improve the quality of scientific experimentation and ultimately speed up drug discovery and finding cures for diseases. Technology such as this, that helps scientists compare products for experimentation, was sorely lacking during my time as a researcher at Stanford University. We strive to have the Bioz Stars ratings technology align itself as closely as possible with how researchers actually think when deciding which products to use in their experiments." The Bioz platform and Bioz Stars are available free to researchers and scientists. Visit www.bioz.com, and start using Bioz today to find the best products for your experiments.
