We Are Here to End the Predatory Pricing
of Insulin Manufacturers

At BiologX, making life-saving insulin affordable is our mission. When we set out to make high-quality insulin affordable, we worked hard to eliminate inefficiencies throughout the production process. BiologX has devised unique processes for the production of recombinant human insulin (RHI) that enable us to make more insulin in a shorter period of time – all at affordable costs to patients worldwide. Our life-saving insulins will meet or exceed USP Reference Standards, the highest quality standards in the market. We expect to do this all while maintaining profits and growth.

Stories of Americans rationing insulin - and dying for it - have been making national headlines. The most famous case, perhaps, was 26-year-old Alec Smith, who died in 2017 less than a month after he aged out of his mother's health insurance plan. Despite working full-time making more than minimum wage, he could not afford to buy new insurance or pay the $1,000 a month for insulin without it.


Key Questions for Investors Answered

What Will be BiologX's Price Range for Regular Human Insulin?

We intend to sell our insulin for $25-$50 per vial in the USA. With these reduced prices, our goal is to operate a profitable company while helping save lives for those who would otherwise not be able to afford insulin.


What About Walmart Insulin & Other Seemingly Low Cost Insulin Options?

While you may hear stories or have experienced yourself $25 insulin at Walmart or some lower cost options offered by current insulin manufacturers in the market, there is one key issue that these options do not solve. That issue quite simply is access. Only a small fraction of diabetics are able to access these lower cost options and it has been well documented that the lower cost options are not widely available to the public. This is where Biologx comes in - we are here to provide nationwide distribution of affordable insulin; something that is currently not available in the US.


What Prevents Existing Insulin Manufacturers From Simply Matching BiologX Pricing?

This is a critical point for you to understand as we do not anticipate the current insulin manufacturers will be able to match our pricing at a nationwide scale. Based on the most recent annual reports of the leading insulin manufactures in the market today, they are showing net margins ranging from about 21% to 34%. Based on our analysis and projections, we anticipate our net margins to be significantly higher than this range. Quite simply, our competitors have massive overhead costs associated with their businesses and their production processes are not as efficient as ours. When we come into the market offering our insulin at $25 to $50 per vial, the competitors have no way to match that a sustainable and nationwide scale. Simply put, the math does not work for them and they would not be able to offer this same level of pricing.


Is BiologX Insulin of Similar Quality to Current Insulin on the Market?

We have completed a variety of studies where we have proved bisimilarity of our insulin to two leading insulin manufacturers in the market currently: Novo and Eli Lilly. This is a tremendous win for BiologX and shows that our insulin is as good or better than that of these two leading competitors.

For those familiar with these types of studies, please feel free to check out the results of our studies by clicking here.


Where Will BiologX Insulin Be Sold?

We intend to distribute nationally through all standard channels so that anywhere patients are currently getting their insulin, they will be able to access our insulin for an expected price of $25 to $50 per vial. We will also be selling our insulin online directly through our website so that anyone in the country can order our insulin directly to their house. We believe we will be the only manufacturer in the country offering insulin directly online and see this as a large competitive advantage we will have once we enter the market.


Join Us As We Aim to Take Down the Corrupt Pharmaceutical Industry

The major insulin manufacturers in the USA are making huge profits at the expense of patients.

BiologX is not just another corrupt pharmaceutical company, we are here to change the industry and focus on what's best for the end patients. We understand the pain points that diabetics are experiencing and we are here to solve the predatory pricing problem in the United States so that all patients have access to reasonably priced medecine.

Important Note on Stock Liquidity

Please note that BiologX intends to list its stock on an ATS (Alternative Trading System) at the completion of our Reg A+ offering.

An ATS is an after-market exchange where people that own securities can buy and sell them. Because all Reg A+ offerings are Public Offerings, listing Reg A+ securities after the Reg A+ completes on an ATS is a useful way for BiologX to provide liquidity to its investors. One big advantage of ATS exchanges is that shorting of stocks is not possible and naked shorting is also not possible. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us with any questions.

What Do Pharmaceutical Companies Really Spend Their Profits On?

For decades, pharmaceutical companies have claimed that the skyrocketing price of insulin and other drugs is the direct result of innovation.
 
Earlier this year, the US House of Representatives began an investigation to determine just how much of pharmaceutical profits are spent on research and development. Their Drug Pricing Investigation report, which was released in July, tells a much different story than the one Big Pharma has been trying to sell us for years.

Buybacks and Dividends

According to the report, eight of the top 14 pharmaceutical companies in the world spend more on buybacks and dividends for their investors than they do on research and development (R&D). 

One of those eight companies, Novo Nordisk, spent more than twice as much on buybacks and dividends than they did on R&D every year between 2016 and 2020.

Overall, the 14 companies examined spent an average of 10% more on buybacks and dividends than they did on R&D. The US-based companies, which includes Eli Lilly, were the worst offenders, spending an average of 24% more on buybacks and dividends than on R&D.

Executive Compensation

Executive compensation packages made up another huge portion of the spending habits of the 14 companies evaluated in the investigation.

Altogether, these compensation packages totaled over $3.2 billion, with an average annual increase of 14% between 2016 and 2020. Most of these companies increased their executive compensation while also raising the prices of drugs that millions of Americans rely on.

Of the three insulin producers evaluated in the report, Eli Lilly paid out the most in executive compensation packages over the five-year period, with the other two companies trailing not far behind.

  • Eli Lilly - $234,000,000
  • Novo Nordisk - $129,000,000
  • Sanofi - $63,000,000

In some cases, the investigation found that bonuses paid out to executives were the direct result of price increases on brand-name drugs. Had these increases not been made, the companies would not have reached the profit goals necessary for the executives to obtain their bonus targets.

Research and Development

While all companies did invest a significant amount into research and development, the investigation found that much of this investment was used to suppress generic and biosimilar competition. This is in stark contrast to the claim that most expenditures made by pharmaceutical companies are used to foster innovation.

Securing extra patents and pursuing lawsuits are just some of the ways these companies spend their R&D money in order to continue their monopoly over certain types of drugs. In fact, more money is spent on patenting older products than on innovative products currently in development. 

What Does This Tell Us?

The US House of Representatives Drug Pricing Investigation makes clear that insulin prices are not skyrocketing due to innovation. And, in fact, investing in new products accounts for a very small percentage of the overall expenditures made by these companies.

Most of the profits these companies see go straight into buybacks and dividends. The rest is used to suppress competition within the market and pay astronomical compensation packages to reward executives for needlessly driving up the prices of life-saving drugs.

The Insulin Price Crises: What Is Patent Evergreening?

Patents are important for innovation. They act as a safeguard for inventors to help assure they receive adequate compensation for their work before competition enters the market. This time period varies by product but can last up to 20 years.

But patents can also be used to repress innovation and create monopolies. 

One of the most striking examples of this can be found in the insulin market. Here, big companies engage in a process called patent evergreening that allows them to safeguard their insulins for well over the maximum time period covered by any one patent.

According to an I-MAK investigational report, patent evergreening is a leading cause of today’s insulin pricing crises.

“Today, drugmakers are filing dozens or even hundreds of patents, resulting in nearly double the length of protection, blocking competition and keeping cheaper versions of medicines off the market. This abusive practice, known as ‘evergreening’, or what drugmakers market as incremental innovation and improvements, sits at the heart of the drug price crisis in the United States.” 

By making tiny changes to their insulin products, these big companies can apply for new patents to extend the protection period for their product indefinitely. 

In the insulin world, Lantus is one of the biggest offenders of patent evergreening. The product has been on the market since 2000 but is currently protected for 37 years thanks to new patents.

Sanofi, the company that owns Lantus, has filed for over 70 patents on the drug since 2000. Of those, the US government has granted 49—ensuring that Sanofi will have the undisputed power to set the price of this life-saving drug until at least 2037.

Considering that the price of Lantus jumped an astonishing 114% between 2012 and 2018, we can’t even imagine what it will cost by the time the patents run out. Assuming they ever do.

Simple Breakdown: Why Is Insulin So Expensive?

The problems with the American healthcare system are complex and far-reaching. The same can be said about the issues that have driven up the cost of insulin to the point that 1 in 4 people living with diabetes are forced to ration the drug.

One of the best articles for explaining the high cost of insulin was published by Mayo Clinic Proceedings in 2019.

According to this article, there are six reasons insulin prices have risen by over 1000% in the last 20 years.

1. The customer base for insulin is a vulnerable population willing to pay any amount for this life-saving drug. This fact, combined with the complications that arise from other reasons listed here, most especially a lack of market competition, has led to greed that survives even as these vulnerable people die.

2. There is a virtual monopoly in the insulin market that has existed for decades. According to the article: Insulin pricing in the United States is the consequence of the exact opposite of a free market: extended monopoly on a lifesaving product in which prices can be increased at will, taking advantage of regulatory and legal restrictions on market entry and importation. Currently, there are only three companies authorized to sell insulin in the United States.

3. Patent abuse and evergreening. Every change, no matter how slight or inconsequential, that is made to an insulin formula results in patent extensions. Add to this the fact that analog insulins can be covered by multiple patents (Lantus currently has 70) and you end up with a drug that cannot be easily replicated and sold for less.

4. Barriers to biosimilar market entry. While this has improved in recent years thanks to congressional intervention and FDA support, getting biosimilar insulin to market has always been very difficult. The overuse of patents, frivolous lawsuits by large corporations, and difficulties obtaining coverage are the main reasons biosimilar drugs have historically not been pursued. 

5. PBMs and middlemen with considerable control over market prices. Pharmacy benefit managers are responsible for taking drugs and marketing them to wholesalers and pharmacies. These middlemen use their substantial power over the market and the conflicting interests of their many customers to drive up their cut of the profits. This results in huge increases in insulin prices over very short periods of time.

6. The lobbying power of pharmaceutical companies. The Big Three spend huge amounts of money on lobbying and advertising each year in order to thwart any attempts by the government to implement real solutions to the problems outlined above. Most recently, these companies have taken to creating “authorized generics” of their own products as a cheap PR move. Unfortunately, these more affordable products are intentionally not being widely distributed and make up a very small percentage of the insulin purchased each month.

August 10
What is “Authorized Generic” Insulin?

There is a new term floating around in the world of insulin production: authorized generic. If you read our article on biosimilars, then you already know there is no such thing as a generic when it comes to biologic pharmaceuticals like insulin. 

So that begs the question, what on earth is an authorized generic insulin?

The answer is definitely not what you would expect.

There are currently three insulins available in the United States that have been deemed authorized generics by the FDA, according to HealthLine

The first is insulin lispro, which is made by Eli Lilly as a lower priced version of Humalog. The problem? Insulin lispro IS Humalog. The two products are identical aside from the label and name.

The other two authorized generics are made by Novo Nordisk. Insulin aspart is the authorized generic of their top-seller, NovoLog. And insulin aspart mix is the generic of their 70/30 mix. Both products are identical to the insulins they were made to be the generic of.

So what is an authorized generic insulin? The exact same thing as the brand name but with a different label, different name, and (slightly) lower price tag.

This answer only creates a lot more questions. For one, if it is possible to make the same insulin using the same method and sell it for a lower price, why not just lower the price of the brand name insulin? And, more to the point, why would companies make a low-priced version of their top selling insulin?

The answer: because congress is demanding insulin prices be reduced. By responding to those demands by offering affordable insulin options, the big insulin companies can appease congress and avoid them taking more extreme measures such as passing price cap bills.

But, in truth, authorized generics are not an answer to anything. They are nothing more than a PR stunt.

The distribution and supply of these affordable insulins are controlled 100% by the companies that make them. And those companies have a vested interest in not letting their generics out-compete their identical, more expensive products. 

Analysis of prescription availability found that only 8% of Humalog prescriptions filled in 2019 were filled with generic insulin lispro and that the generic was not widely available or advertised in pharmacies across the country.

Meanwhile, the price of brand name insulins continues to rise and profits for the Big Three insulin makers continue to break records.

I am wondering how you plan to compete among the Brand name companies with the PBM's requiring rebate programs in order to be listed as preferred? This seems to be a large part of the profit game for the PBM's. Do you think there is enough cash market to manage an authorized generic to be on the market?

BiologX on November 12
We expect the demand for our low cost insulin will be substantial both through existing channels and a direct-to-patient online pharmacy (e.g. GoodRx et al) Historically lower priced generics capture between 50% - 80% of the branded market in approximately 3 years of introduction no matter what hindrances a PBM might attempt. Analysis shows that patients will seek out and demand safe, effective, high quality low cost medications.

STOCK SYMBOL on October 25
Can you please tell us what the stock symbol is, assuming that there is one?

wondering about why there is no answer on December 09
I noticed that this question was post over three months and has not been answer. I remember I invested in forex and I could see my investment and how it was growing and here I do not see it. I think it might be because I do not come here often and explore but the times I have, I have not seen anything like that just general information. I am weary of this because of scams and that stops me from investing more because I know people need insuling and my family members are diabetic. Not knowing how the company is performing out in the public since I invested stops me from investing more. When are they going to answer that question? I have tried to look it up couple of times and I only find biologix but not biologx on yahoo.
