Each patient battling a disease or managing a chronic condition lives in the hope that tomorrow will bring a new medicine that delivers better health. America’s biopharmaceutical research companies share the same goal, constantly developing new medicines that can prevent diseases, improve patients’ health, and save lives.
Since 2000, more than 500 new medicines have been approved by the
FDA, helping patients live longer, healthier lives. Medications are
transforming many cancers into treatable conditions, reducing the impact
of cardiovascular disease, offering new options for patients with
hard-to-treat diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, and fighting
even the rarest conditions. Explore the medicines in development for a
wide range of diseases below.
