About DrugPatentWatch

DrugPatentWatch provides actionable business intelligence on small-molecule drugs

DrugPatentWatch serves leading companies ranging from biopharmaceutical R&D to healthcare delivery, and has been cited by CNN, NEJM, Nature Journals, and many other leading publications.

Use cases for the DrugPatentWatch platform include:

  • Branded pharmaceutical global business intelligence and forecasting
  • Generic drug and API manufacturer portfolio management
  • Wholesalers preventing overstock of off-patent drugs
  • Healthcare payer formulary management and budget management

Different plans are available, focusing on general business intelligence, expired patents, and forecasting.

Revisions and Annual Editions

DrugPatentWatch incorporates data directly from the FDA, Patent and Trademark Office, and other US and foreign government sources. Each is updated as frequently as possible — often daily — providing you with fresh information.

For those seeking information on now-expired patents, annual editions provide historic archives dating back to the Hatch-Waxman Act — arguably for as long as generic drugs have existed.

Database Coverage

DrugPatentWatch contains information on FDA-approved small molecule drugs. For information on biologics see DrugPatentWatch's sister site, BiologicPatentWatch.com

While DrugPatentWatch includes information on expired patents, archived copies of the FDA Orange Book in PDF format are also available in the Orange Book Archives.
