Smoking cessation is among the most dynamic pharmaceutical markets, and one that is expected to grow despite economic conditions. More than 5 million deaths are attributed to nicotine each year. This has encouraged public health entities to pursue smoking cessation, and has driven development of smoking cessation products, both prescription and over the counter. The arrival of Chantix/Champix and its unique marketing strategy and a robust pipeline bodes well for growth in this pharmaceutical segment.
