plc's acquisition of Almirall
S.A.'s respiratory assets should buy the pharma time while
its respiratory pipeline matures. The deal not only gives AstraZeneca a faster
route to market in the COPD combination therapy race - moving it into third
place behind GlaxoSmithKline
plc and Novartis
AG - but also gives AZ a greater range of choices for
combination therapies in two device formats in a disease space where patient
preference is important.
therapies lead the line in AstraZeneca's respiratory franchise, but the
long-term goal is to complement them with biologics for more severe disease -
and AZ has one of the broadest pipelines of respiratory biologics in the
industry, with two biologics in Phase III testing and a pair in Phase II.
