Date:2/2/2012

0;million in the fourth quarter of 2010.

"An increase in first-time funding may not bear fruit until several years down the road," added Lefteroff. "The products under development by startups might not reach the market for a decade or more. Of 15 high-priority drugs approved by the FDA during 2011, 13 had roots in venture capital."

Funding by Subsegment

Three of the seven Biotechnology subsegments exhibited growth in the fourth quarter of 2011 compared to the fourth quarter of 2010.  Dollars invested in the Biosensors, Biotech Human, and Biotech Animal subsegments rose 410 percent, 138 percent, and 75 percent, respectively.   The Human Biotechnology subsegment captured the largest share in the fourth quarter with $891 million going into 68 deals, an 11 percent increase in deals from Q4 of 2010.

Funding for two of the three Medical Device subsegments increased in Q4 2011.  Investments in the Medical Therapeutics and Medical/health subsegements increased 29 percent and 19 percent in dollars, respectively.   The Medical Therapeutics category accounted for 72 percent of the dollars and 66 percent of the deals in the fourth quarter with $360 million going into 48 deals.

Investments by Region

The top five metropolitan regions receiving Life Sciences venture capital funding during Q4 2011 were San Francisco Bay ($498 million), Boston ($384 million), San Diego Metro ($193 million), NY Metro ($98 million), and Orange County ($97 million).  Investments in Biotechnology deals accounted for 77 percent of the dollars invested in the top five regions in Q4 2011.  Dollars invested in all five of the top regions increased in the fourth quarter of 2011 when compared to the same quarter of 2010.
