2006 Pipeline Budget: $7.9 billion (€5.40B)

2007 Pipeline News: This year, J&J’s pipeline seemed to take a back seat to the controversy surrounding anemia drug safety. But analysts weren’t too busy speculating over the drugmaker’s anemia drug woes to take note of J&J’s anticipated slowdown in growth. J&J has several late-stage drugs that hold the key to the company’s future. These include telaprevir, two HIV drugs, golimumab (which it's developing with Schering-Plough) and rivaroxaban. Company officials anticipate 18 to 21 new drug filings or approvals over the next three years; five of those are expected by the end of 2007.
