Analysts agree that the next few years are going to be tough ones for Eli Lilly. Several key drugs, including Cialis (tadalafil) and Effient (prasugrel), are facing generic competition, expected to cut into revenues for the next two to three years. With that in mind though, Lilly is hoping the launch and growth of new products will keep the company growing – at least slightly.
The healthcare industry has been in a state of turmoil this year, with a new administration creating uncertainty around the Affordable Care Act and taxes, and drug pricing remaining controversial. At the same time, natural disasters have created problems for the supply chain, and discord in Washington weighs on government policies like Medicare. This electric environment has also been the backdrop for a new age of gene therapy and artificial intelligence.
Allergan has been trying to bolster its R&D efforts. The company has created six therapeutic focus areas, including eye care, dermatology, central nervous system, gastroenterology, anti-infectives and women’s health. Women’s health in particular is an area that not many companies in the pharma world focus on, but conditions like uterine fibroids are a high unmet need for a significant portion of the population. Allergan has its own candidate in late-stage development for the condition.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
