(NYSE: MRK), AbbVie Inc. (NYSE: ABBV), Novartis AG (NYSE: NVS), and GlaxoSmithKline Plc (NYSE: GSK). Today's readers may access these reports free of charge - including full price targets, industry analysis and analyst ratings - via the links below. Johnson & Johnson Research Report Since the beginning of 2013, J&J has already surged 8.3 percent, primarily due to its omnipresence in almost every corner of the health care industry, from pharmaceuticals to medical supplies to personal care products and more. The company's diversity and solid cash flow allows it to withstand pressures. In February, a J&J pharmaceutical company, Janssen Pharmaceutical K.K., announced its submission of a regulatory application to Japanese health authorities seeking approval for simeprevir, administered with pegylated interferon and ribavirin for the treatment of genotype 1 chronic hepatitis C patients. The hepatitis C virus is rampant in Japan, affecting approximately 1.5 to two million people. Furthermore on the pharmaceuticals segment, J&J's prostate cancer drug Zytiga continues to beat expectations, recording over 300 percent sales growth in the previous year, to $961 million. By 2015 the product is expected to reach $1.8 billion.

Research Report Looking to expand its biologics portfolio, Merck, in agreement with Samsung Bioepis, plans to develop and commercialize multiple pre-specified and undisclosed biosimilar candidates. Through Merck's global commercial presence, combined with Samsung Bioepis' biologic development and manufacturing capabilities, both companies are well positioned to increase access to biosimilars to improve human health. Under the contract, Samsung Bioepis covers the preclinical and clinical development, process development and manufacturing, clinical trials, and registration; and Merck covers the commercialization.

Research Report Relatively new in the industry, AbbVie was formed in 2013, following emancipation from Abbott Laboratories. On March 1 the company was up 2.41 percent and closed at $37.81. Two years ago, the company was involved in the first well-documented case of an infant who is functionally cured of HIV infection. A drug manufactured by AbbVie was among the treatments prescribed to the Mississippi patient. When the company spun off in January, it also inherited the patents for the co-formulation, which it now markets as Kaletra. According to experts, the treatment is a promising lead for additional R&D toward curing other children. In 2016, patent protection of Kaletra is set to expire. For this year, AbbVie expects to initiate several Phase IIB and Phase III programs.

Ilaris is the only approved fully human monoclonal antibody targeting IL-1 beta, and is now being investigated in a number of rare inflammatory conditions. Novartis also is taking initiatives to eliminate rheumatic heart disease (RHD) in Zambia, Africa by treating children with streptococcal infections and silent RHD by providing monthly penicillin injections. In February, the company received multiple recognitions for having the most innovative pipeline.
