Pharmaceutical Revenue PerformanceSecond-quarter pharmaceutical sales grew 2 percent to $10.6 billion, including a 3 percent negative impact due to foreign exchange. Adjusting pharmaceutical sales in the second quarter of 2011 to exclude sales of REMICADE (infliximab) and SIMPONI (golimumab) from the territories transferred to Johnson & Johnson through the settlement agreement, pharmaceutical sales would have increased 5 percent in the second quarter of 2012. 6 The revenue increases largely reflect strong sales growth for JANUVIA (sitagliptin), VICTRELIS (boceprevir), JANUMET (sitagliptin/metformin hydrochloride), SINGULAIR (montelukast sodium), ISENTRESS (raltegravir) and GARDASIL [Human Papillomavirus Quadrivalent (Types 6, 11, 16 and 18) Vaccine, Recombinant]. These increases were partially offset by expected declines in sales of COZAAR (losartan potassium) and HYZAAR (losartan potassium and hydrochlorothiazide) as well as European austerity measures. Sales from emerging markets accounted for approximately 18 percent of pharmaceutical sales in the second quarter. Growth in the emerging markets is being driven by diversified brands and core products like JANUVIA, JANUMET and ISENTRESS. China continues to be a key driver with 27 percent growth for the second quarter, including a 4 percent benefit from foreign exchange.
