3 Things to Know about our 2019 U.S. Transparency Report

    For the third year in a row, the average net price of our medicines in the U.S. declined.
    Since our first U.S. Transparency Report in 2016, the compound net price of Janssen medicines declined 9.2% while the average net price of our medicines declined 1.2% in 2019.

    We provided intermediaries in the system with $24.5 billion in rebates, discounts, and fees — more than half the list price of our medicines.
    We offer discounts and rebates on our medicines so that payers will make them accessible and affordable. We believe they should share these savings directly with patients.

    Our investment in global research and development is 91% more than what we spent on global sales and marketing.
    In 2019, we invested $8.8 billion in global research and development. As a result, we had 2 new medicines and 9 new indications approved by the FDA, and this investment has built a pipeline of more than 80 medicine candidates.
We live in a moment of incredible hope, on the verge of extraordinary progress that could change our lives and the lives of our children and grandchildren. At Janssen, we are committed to bringing that promise to life.

Our approach to research today reflects our responsibility to take risks and push medicine beyond its current horizon, where tomorrow’s cures await. Sometimes, our quest for a cure is personal — like in the case of Gayle W., a Neuroscience Data Scientist at Janssen Research & Development, LLC, whose father recently passed away from Alzheimer’s disease.
