Certain of our marketed products are under increased competitive pressures, including from biosimilar and other products in Europe, which compete or are expected to compete with Aranesp®, Neulasta® and NEUPOGEN®, as well as our marketed products in the United States, including ENBREL. For example, we have experienced and expect to continue to experience increased competition throughout Europe, including from a number of biosimilar erythropoietin products, which compete with Aranesp®. In addition, a number of G-CSF biosimilar products have received or are expected to receive marketing authorization from the European Commission, and have been or are expected to be launched and compete with Neulasta® and NEUPOGEN®. Further, in the United States, ENBREL will continue to face increased competition primarily due to the expected launch of new products, including competition from J&Js Simponi TM (golimumab), which was approved by the FDA in April 2009.
