Biotechnology companies research, develop, and produce a wide variety of commercial products that often use the processes of living organisms as they manufacture products. Investopedia (2019) points out that the identification and sourcing of DNA have helped the biotech industry make significant accomplishments and breakthroughs. In recent years, computer technology companies have also accompanied the rise in biotechnology startups. The aim of most is to use biotechnology processes is to create breakthrough pharmaceuticals require data analytics, the science of evaluating raw data.

Regarding intellectual property, in the businesses of biotech and pharmaceuticals, pharmaceuticals generally hold exclusive patent rights to manufacture and distribute their drugs for five years whereas biotech can get patent protection for 12 years. The process to develop a new drug may take up to 15 years to complete. Pharmaceutical companies and biotech companies have worked together in many ways.

What are biotechnology and human health alliances?
Biotechnology health involves the use of living organisms, or parts of living organisms, to provide new methods of production and make new products. 
A few examples, such as:

  1. Genetically-modified (GM) foods such as corn, potatoes, tomatoes, rice, soybeans.
  2. Biotechnology-derived Health Products such as recombinant blood products, cytokines, monoclonal antibodies, interferons, and insulins.
  3. Tissue engineered products such as bone grafts, heart valves, xenografts, and collagen agents used in gene therapies molecular farming products.
  4. Diagnostic and preventative agents using drugs and medical devices derived from biotechnology such as diagnostic test kits for viral, bacterial and, rickettsia vaccines for diagnosis and imaging.
  5. Environmental products bioremediation, the use of bacteria to clean up environmental contaminants, such as oil spills
Why is biotechnology important in medicine?
Approved biotechnology medicines already treat or help prevent heart attacks, stroke, multiple sclerosis, leukemia, hepatitis, congestive heart failure, lymphoma, kidney cancer, cystic fibrosis, and other diseases. These medicines use many different approaches to treat disease as do drugs currently in the pipeline.

Medical biotechnology alone has become a $150 billion-a-year business. Recently, Top U.S.-based biotechnology firms in terms of market capitalization as of the end of 2018 were Amgen Inc., Gilead Sciences, Celgene Corp., and Biogen Inc. There also have been significant product introductions in biopharma drugs. Among the most frequently used biotechnology medical products recently introduced:
  • AbbVie's Humira is used to treat arthritis, psoriasis, and Crohn's disease, among other ailments.
  • Roche's Rituxan is used to slow the growth of tumors in several types of cancer.
  • Amgen/Pfizer's Enbrel is used to treat several autoimmune diseases.

What is biotechnology health?
Biotechnology - one such area of growth - is an umbrella term covering a broad spectrum of scientific applications used in many sectors, such as health and agriculture. It involves the use of living organisms, or parts of living organisms, to provide new methods of production and make new products.
