Facing the Challenges in Transplantation

Executive Summary

The transplantation market has changed considerably since Novartis (via its predecessor, Sandoz) launched the then-revolutionary selective immunosuppressant cyclosporin in 1983. Nowadays, clinicians and patients have many more treatment options--thanks largely to enhanced understanding of immunology--and thus the trend is strongly towards individualized therapy. In response to this shift, Novartis has given up pursuing radically new approaches to treatment and is concentrating on developing a product for every class of drug now used to treat graft recipients.
