Three New Jersey-based life sciences firms made the latest Fortune 500, but Pfizer Inc. remains top dog in the industry.
The annual list ranks the world’s largest companies by revenue and provides a good look at how the top Big Pharma firms stack up against each other.
Exxon Mobil leapfrogged Walmart for the top spot on the overall list after raking in $452.9 billion in 2011.
Within pharma, Pfizer remains the biggest firm, coming in at No. 40 after bringing in $67.9 billion in revenue last year. The company is based in New York, but has a large presence in the Garden State.
With the exception of Celgene, the local pharma firms all slid in this year's list. The largest drop was Pfizer, which had been No. 31 last year.
