LONDON, April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The healthcare sector is undergoing a major transformation after the Supreme Court last year upheld President Obama's Affordable Care Act (ACA). While supporters of ACA say that the reform will benefit the healthcare industry in the long-term,critics say that reform will hurt research and development as it will result in higher costs for the industry. For biotechnology companies such as Amgen Inc. (NASDAQ: AMGN),Affymax Inc. (NASDAQ: AFFY),Vertex Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: VRTX),Questcor Pharmaceuticals Inc.

Biotechnology stocks ended mostly higher in Thursday's trading session tracking gains in the broad market.
