Interestingly, the above quote by Benjamin Franklin epitomizes in many respects the significant daily challenges faced by biopharmaceutical companies – to lengthen and improve the quality of life, while always facing the mortality of patients against increasingly challenging diseases, and at the same time engaged in pursuing this noble endeavor in a prudent economic fashion. This white paper goes outside the traditional boundaries of biopharmaceutical commercial analytics to explore a topic noted in the second part of Benjamin Franklin’s quote – taxes. In particular, this white paper will explore the application of econometric analysis of biopharmaceutical transfer pricing, a direct result of differentials in cross-country corporate income tax rates. Given disparities in the US corporate income tax rate relative to other developed countries with major biopharmaceutical operations, this is a white paper that deserves your attention, and will guarantee not to “tax” you (pun intended).

If you’re part of a clinical study team racing a new product to commercialization, you likely live by these two simple rules: time is money, and the first one to market wins. But just because it’s simple doesn’t mean it’s easy. That ticking clock is background noise to the responsibilities of regulations, study protocols, supply chains, and patient recruitment — all the details that must be worked out before a study can even begin. The pressure is always there. The longer it takes for a study to start, the longer it takes to complete.
