The Pharma Documentation Ring (P-D-R) held its 47th Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Bad Nauheim, near Frankfurt, Germany from the 4th – 7th October 2004. The P-D-R is an association whose members represent the scientific information departments of the leading international R&D-based pharmaceutical corporations. There was no change to the number of corporate members during the previous 12 months. The 20 member companies continue to account for approximately 60% of the total global turnover of ethical drugs (approximately $500 billion); by far the majority of top 20 global pharmaceutical companies are P-D-R members.
