When you look at the structure of our US business, you can actually trace the lifecycle of our remarkable drugs and vaccines from original concept all the way through to the patient.
Research and development teams invent and test the compounds, global manufacturing and supply teams produce and package the finalized products, and then our marketing and sales teams take the products to market.
You'll also see this lifecycle replicated in our commercial businesses, NA Pharmaceuticals, and Consumer Healthcare US. Our portfolio includes numerous over-the-counter brands including the leading stop-smoking products, Nicorette, Nicoderm CQ, and Commit lozenges. Millions are losing weight with alli, the first FDA-approved over-the-counter weight loss program. And, then there's a host of other medicine cabinet staples such as Aquafresh and Sensodyne, Polident, and Super PoliGrip, plus Tums, Abreva, and Breathe Right.
