03/22/2013 | 07:05am US/Eastern

LONDON, March 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Biotechnology companies are expected to face significant challenges in the near future due to rising costs related to the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

(NASDAQ: ARIA), ZIOPHARM Oncology Inc. (NASDAQ: ZIOP), NPS Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: NPSP), and Santarus Inc. (NASDAQ: SNTS) will be to bring new and potential blockbuster drugs to the market. Biotechnology companies will be looking to form collaboration with major pharmaceutical companies as well as academic institutions to develop potential blockbuster drugs. On Thursday, biotechnology stocks ended on a mixed note as the broad market tumbled on concerns over Cyprus's bailout.
