More pro­gram cuts ahead as Sanofi CEO Paul Hud­son con­tin­ues to re­shape the com­pa­ny

One quar­ter in­to the new year, Sanofi CEO Paul Hud­son re­mains stead­fast on his mis­sion to re­shape the com­pa­ny — and that will mean some se­ri­ous pipeline prun­ing, par­tic­u­lar­ly in the gen­er­al med­i­cines unit.

In late 2019 and ear­ly 2020, Sanofi’s gen­er­al med­i­cines unit boast­ed more than 350 prod­uct fam­i­lies, ac­cord­ing to Olivi­er Charmeil, EVP of gen­er­al med­i­cines. By the end of this year, the com­pa­ny aims to re­duce that fig­ure to about 125, ei­ther by di­vest­ing or dis­con­tin­u­ing pro­grams. And by 2025, the goal is to sit at right around 100 prod­uct fam­i­lies.
