The covid-19 pandemic – and the amount of public money that governments are spending on healthcare – has thrust the life sciences industry into the nternational spotlight, with debates over price controls and IP waivers making headlines around the world. While many of these concerns are global, the same is not always true of the solutions adopted by national regulators.The first edition of The Guide to Life Sciences – edited by Ingrid Vandenborre and Caroline Janssens – provides practical and timely guidance for both practitioners and enforcers trying to navigate this high-stakes environment. The Guide draws on the wisdom and expertise of distinguished practitioners globally to provide essential guidance on subjects as diverse as biosimilar competition and product denigration, as well as a forensic examination of the most signifi cant and far-reaching regulations and decisions from around the world.
