Here are the highlights of Tufts CSDD's Outlook 2015

R&D Trends: Oncology development activity will expand, driven by advances in science, medical need, and regulatory and market incentives. Across all therapeutic areas, developers will increasingly rely on risk-sharing and collaborative relationships, from discovery through development, to spur innovation and reduce costs.

Regulatory Environment: Public demand for new and innovative medicines to treat a wide range of diseases, for broad as well as narrow populations, will spur regulatory authorities to increase engagement with stakeholders and encourage sponsors to explore novel development pathways.

Biotechnology Sector Trends: The pace of biotech development and product approvals will build on recent activity—25 biological approvals in the U.S. in the first 10 months of 2014—as the sector gains a growing share of total pharmaceutical sales.

Prescription Drug Policy: The continued rise in prices charged for specialty pharmaceuticals will be tempered by competition in several key therapeutic classes, as well as the introduction of biosimilars.

R&D Management and Operations: Drug sponsors will implement new strategies to improve clinical study design feasibility, data transparency and disclosure, and collaborative effectiveness with CROs and investigative sites to achieve higher levels of study volunteer engagement and satisfaction.
