Abbott Laboratories is one of the oldest and most successful pharmaceutical companies in the United States. While about 30 percent of annual revenues come from the sale of pharmaceuticals--including Abbott's flagship drug, the antibiotic Biaxin--the company has a higher profile in the area of nutritionals, where its products include leading infant formula brands Similac and Isomil and a leading adult nutritional brand, Ensure. Abbott is also a top manufacturer of medical diagnostic equipment, with an emphasis on blood analyzers and the detection and monitoring of infections and diseases. The firm's hospital products unit produces electronic and injectable drug-delivery systems, intravenous solutions and supplies, anesthetics, and products used in critical care settings. Abbott's annual research and development budget exceeds $1 billion, with areas of emphasis including AIDS/antivirals, anti-infectives, diabetes, neuroscience, oncology, pediatric pharmaceuticals, urology, and vascular medicine.
