Pfizer Answers Critics with New Rx

During a meeting with industry analysts, Pfizer said it intends to expand in emerging markets. It also said that it will establish a new business unit focusing on cancer drugs, and that it aims to significantly boost the number of drugs in late-stage trials by late next year. The company said it plans to seek 15–20 regulatory approvals between 2010 and 2012. Reuters (3/5)
