New York City, New York -- (June 13, 2013)

The U.S. biotechnology sector has been facing significant competition from generic drug makers following the expiration of patents on several blockbuster drugs. The “patent cliff” is expected to lead to a significant loss in revenue for drug manufacturers and biotechnology companies. In 2013 alone, patents on drugs with annual sales worth nearly $30 billion are set to expire. The key for biotechnology companies will be to boost their product pipelines, going forward. Biotech companies are also likely to collaborate with major pharma companies and institutions to boost their product pipelines. On Wednesday, June 12, 2013, shares in biotechnology companies ended mostly lower, tracking losses in the broader market. The major movers in the sector included ACADIA Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: ACAD), Dendreon Corporation (NASDAQ: DNDN), Medivation Inc. (NASDAQ: MDVN), Cell Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: CTIC), and Sarepta Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: SRPT).
