Business CommentaryPrimary Care unit revenues decreased 28% operationally in comparison with fourth-quarter 2011, primarily due to the losses of exclusivity of Lipitor in most major markets, as well as the resulting shift in the reporting of U.S. and Japan Lipitor revenues to the Established Products unit beginning January 1, 2012. This decline in revenues for Lipitor and for certain other Primary Care unit products that lost exclusivity in various markets in 2012 and 2011 reduced Primary Care unit revenues by approximately $1.8 billion, or 33%. The impact of this decline was slightly offset by the continued strong operational growth of Lyrica in developed markets as well as Celebrex and Viagra in the U.S.
