Hutchison: “”Roche right now gets around $6 billion a year in revenue from that drug. When it comes off patent and you get what they call biosimilars or generics enter the market, they lose about two-thirds of their annual revenue on that drug. So they may go from about $6 billion to $2 billion annually. So if we can extend their Herceptin patent runway for them for another twenty years, therein lies the incredible value.”
