Roche had a decrease of 8% in its income in the first half of the year, up to 29,776 million Swiss francs (€31.24 billion). On the other hand, the pharmacy division grew 1%, to 22,681 million Swiss francs (€23.79 billion), while the diagnostic branch stood at 7.09 billion Swiss francs (€7.44 billion), 29% more compared to 2022.
