Thomson Reuters Helps Brazil’s Institute for Applied Economic Research Identify New Opportunities in the Generic Drug Landscape
PHILADELPHIA and LONDON, Jan. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — The IP & Science business of Thomson Reuters today announced an agreement with Brazil’s Institute for Applied Economic Research (IPEA). This partnership provides IPEA’s Direction of Sectorial Studies and Policies for Innovation, Regulation and Infrastructure (DISET) branch with access to the Newport suite of products, supplying them with generic pharmaceutical intelligence as well as with tools for business development and the sourcing of global active pharmaceutical ingredients.
IPEA, a federal public foundation linked to the Strategic Affairs Secretariat of the Brazilian Presidency, provides technical and institutional support to the government for the development of public policies and development programs in Brazil. Within IPEA, DISET performs studies and evaluates public policies on science and technology, innovation, economic regulation, and antitrust.
DISET will use Newport to find new opportunities to improve Brazil’s national pharmaceutical infrastructure – in research, development and manufacturing – as well as the quality of its active pharmaceutical ingredients. In addition to the extensive generic drug information available through the Newport suite of products, the group will have access to the Newport Generic Deals module, providing seamless integration of nearly 10,000 generic industry deals since 1999.
“We are enthusiastic about the Newport database,” said Professor Eduardo Fiuza, member of the Board of Sector Studies for DISET. “I have never seen so much information about and capabilities for the generic drug market assembled in one single database. It will certainly speed up our data search and contribute to our extensive inquiry on the Brazilian pharmaceutical market. I hope that coverage of Brazilian indicators increases even further in the future.”
“This is an exciting time in the evolution of Brazil’s pharmaceutical development, and we are pleased to partner with DISET to ensure it meets its goals,” said Jon Brett-Harris, executive vice president at Thomson Reuters. “Newport is an essential tool for uncovering new opportunities in the generic drug market, while the mergers and acquisitions data in our Deals module will help pave the way for further economic progress.”
The Thomson Reuters Newport suite incorporates unique strategic intelligence and powerful competitive analysis. It integrates intelligence on more than 40,000 launched products containing over 10,000 different active ingredients and over 25,000 corporate groups. Newport Premium is the most advanced product targeting, global business development and API sourcing system from Thomson Reuters, the industry authority on the global generics market.
