Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/22/2013 -- BMI View: The strength of Israel's R&D capabilities has been witnessed this quarter with an FDA approval of local company Brainway's Deep TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) medical device and positive Phase II clinical trial results for Neurim Pharmaceuticals' insomnia treatment. As leading Israeli generic drugmakers face increasing competition in light of global generic uptake, we expect to see a greater focus towards innovative medicines development and expansion of the country's biotechnology sector.

This is also the case for all other countries in BMI's proprietary system, which ranks pharmaceutical markets according to attractiveness to multinational drugmakers. A minor re-weighting of one of the RRR components is being implemented to improve the tool, and the adjusted scores for all markets will be published in the Q313 updates of the Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare reports.
