Biotech medicines


Biotech medicines—proteins made by modifying the DNA of bacteria, yeast or mammal cells and infused into sick patients—are the fastest growing category of health spending. Sales reached $40 billion in 2006, when reports indicated there were more than 400 biotech products being synthesized to treat cancer, AIDS, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and a hundred other diseases.
