Talk about the global pharmaceutical innovation development trend
In the discussion session of "Global Pharmaceutical Innovation Development Trends", He Ruyi, the former chief scientist of the CFDA Drug Evaluation Center, said: "Although China has developed very well in innovative drugs in recent years, it is necessary to recognize the gap with the international advanced level. I personally feel that Easy to achieve breakthroughs One of the key points of new drug research and development is biological drugs, and the second is improved new drugs. This is our strength. In addition, some new technologies such as gene therapy will also have breakthroughs in the next few years and will catch up with the world's advanced Level."
How to pay for valuable innovations is the focus of RDPAC CEO Conway’s focus. “In terms of national medical insurance fund expenditures, compared with other advanced countries, the structure of innovative drugs still accounts for a small proportion, probably in innovative drugs. Such truly patentable products may be less than 10%, and developed countries are at least 50% to 60%. We can also see that the country is also undergoing industrial adjustments and policy guidance to increase valuable innovation input. Medical insurance funds are limited. How to explore diversified payment and commercial insurance in the future requires the joint efforts of the industry."
