• The differences in drug approvals between the USA (FDA) and the EU (EMA)

• Breaks-out results by therapeutic areas

• Compares the time taken to get drugs approved, and shows the significant difference in drug approval times between the EU and the US

• Shows the percentage of top pharma vs non top pharma in gaining drug approvals
