A breakthrough drug is usually one that is novel that is either treating a new indication or perhaps using a new mechanism to treat an exisiting indication. A me-too is generally a drug that is very similar to one that is already on the market and offers only (at best) incremental advantages to those pre-existing drugs. It uses the same mechanism and goes after existing indications. Not particularly novel.


What's exactly a breakthrough drug? Has it anything to do with me too drugs? I'm looking for it's exactly meaning but I'm not sucessful! I'm a law student and I wanna write about patents and me too drugs. Could you help me?
