Eli Lilly (Lilly), one of the leading players in the global pharmaceuticals industry was best known for its popular antidepressants, Prozac and Serafem. The company offered medicines for a wide variety of ailments. Top drugs included Gemzar (pancreatic cancer), Evista (osteoporosis), Humalog (insulin), Actos (Type 2 diabetes), and Zyprexa (schizophrenia and bipolar disorder).

In addition to neurological, oncological, and diabetes drugs, the company also made antibiotics, growth hormones, anti-ulcer agents, and cardiovascular therapies, as well as animal health products.

Lilly lost its lucrative patent protection for Prozac in August 2001. The company hoped launches of osteoporosis treatment Forteo, antidepressant Duloxetine, and erectile dysfunction treatment Cialis could replace the lost income. Lilly had some 40 other drugs in development, including treatments for sepsis, cancer, and diabetes.
