About DrugPatentWatch

Pharmaceutical Industry Intelligence

DrugPatentWatch was founded in 2002, and originally focused on meeting the needs of investors seeking transparency around drug patent expiration dates. The scope of DrugPatentWatch has expanded significantly in the years since inception.

Use cases for the database include:

  • Branded pharmaceutical firms seeking competitive intelligence
  • Generic and API manufacturers seeking knowledge of which drugs to develop
  • Wholesalers seeking advance notice of patent expiry to avoid over-stocking off-patent drugs
  • Healthcare payers seeking to project and manage future budgets

Different plans are available to meet the needs of these diverse audiences.

Revisions and Annual Editions

DrugPatentWatch incorporates many data sources. Each is updated as frequently as possible, providing you with fresh information.

The core data are updated monthly, using feeds directly from the FDA and USPTO. Sales information is updated annually. The accessory data, such as tentative approvals, US patent details, internaional patent information, etc., are updated weekly. Clinical trial and Paragraph IV data are updated daily.

Annual editions — available in the Premium and Ultimate plans — provide historic archives of the state of drug patent expirations in each recorded year.

Database Coverage

DrugPatentWatch contains information on FDA-approved small molecule drugs.
