After Allergan Merger Halt, Vaccines a Focus for Pfizer

New U.S. Treasury regulation has dissuaded Pfizer from its planned merger with Ireland-based Allergan. The two companies agreed on Tuesday to terminate the deal. The tax inversion move would have benefited Pfizer’s profitability and reintroduced the company to the dermatologics market. Pfizer will now consider business divestitures in order to boost its profits. Pfizer previously spun-off its animal health business in 2013, which now operates as the veterinary pharmaceuticals and diagnostics com...

Are Prices for Veterinary Services Really Rising? A Recent VPI-Purdue Study and its Significance to the Veterinary Diagnostics Market

Are Prices for Veterinary Services Really Rising? A Recent VPI-Purdue Study and its Significance to the Veterinary Diagnostics Market

A recent insurer-sponsored study sought to define real pricing trends for services in the U.S. veterinarian industry. It found surprisingly that during the recession and afterwards (2009-2014) prices overall for canine veterinary services actually fell according to the generated index.

Kalorama Information outlines this prevailing not...

The global BVD test market has grown in the past decade largely through European BVD disease control and eradication efforts; the United States has yet to implement a BVD control program nationwide with only regional voluntary programs active. The current state of BVD control activities is i...

Veterinary Diagnostics Market Quietly Outshines Medical Counterpart for Another Year

Veterinary Diagnostics Market Quietly Outshines Medical Counterpart for Another Year

The past year visited the U.S. IVD market with rigid cuts in lab test reimbursements and a regulatory roll-out of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that did little to instill industry confidence. Cost drivers in medical spending were able to only in part offset such market disturbances, and generate national IVD market growth of around 3%. Quietly outperforming its larger sister market, the U.S. veterinary diagnostics market grew by about 5% in 2013.

The fundaments of the veterinary diagnostics ma...
