Supplementary notes

Note : The denominator in this ratio comprises sales of patented, non-patented brand and generic drug products. Starting with the estimate for 2005, this value is derived from data contained in IQVIA’s MIDAS™ database. In previous years, IMS data were used to calculate sales of generic drug products only, while sales of non-patented brand products were estimated from data submitted by patentees. This approach was abandoned because of anomalies related to year-to-year changes in the set of companies reporting to the PMPRB. Ratios reported for years before 2005 likely overstate the patented share, but by only a small amount. This small bias in no way invalidates the strong upward trend evinced by the results for the years 1990 through 2003. Ratios since 2009 have also been revised slightly as a result of data updates from IQVIA - none of these adjustments resulted in a change greater than 0.4%.
