Abstract
For the sake of providing evidences that contribute to policy making or strategy planning in AMED (a Japanese version of the NIH) and pharmaceutical companies, this study tried to analyze a current state of the pharmaceutical industry based on new indicators and forecast the future thorough a series of papers. In this article, this study tried to give an overview of the funding trends for the drug development o this study analyzed 18,845 contracts between licensors and partners whose headquarters are located in the U.S. As a result, Major companies, SMEs are dealing not only with other SMEs but also dealing actively with government agencies and foundations in U.S. Government involvement is one of the most important aspects, because it provides innovation system structure to link each entity. The foundation also plays the important role as a funding partner in U.S. Focusing the role of SMEs in U.S., there are some transactions that SMEs buy the candidates of major companies on the discovery phase. On the other hands, investment from venture capital firms in Japan is one tenth of that in US. In AMED, introductory service of venture capital, commercialization, and government procurement will become useful systems.
