Item 1. BUSINESS
Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiaries have approximately 115,500 employees worldwide engaged in the research and development, manufacture and sale of a broad range of products in the health care field. Johnson & Johnson is a holding company, which has more than 250 operating companies conducting business in virtually all countries of the world. Johnson & Johnson's primary focus has been on products related to human health and well-being. Johnson & Johnson was incorporated in the State of New Jersey in 1887.
The Company's structure is based on the principle of decentralized management. The Executive Committee of Johnson & Johnson is the principal management group responsible for the operations and allocation of the resources of the Company. This Committee oversees and coordinates the activities of the Consumer, Pharmaceutical and Medical Devices and Diagnostics business segments. Each subsidiary within the business segments is, with some exceptions, managed by citizens of the country where it is located.
Segments of Business
Johnson & Johnson's operating companies are organized into three business segments: Consumer, Pharmaceutical and Medical Devices and Diagnostics. Additional information required by this item is incorporated herein by reference to the narrative and tabular (but not the graphic) descriptions of segments and operating results under the captions "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Results of Operations and Financial Condition" on pages 26 through 35 and Note 18 "Segments of Business and Geographic Areas" under "Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements" on page 55 of the Annual Report, filed as Exhibit 13 to this Report on Form 10-K.
The Consumer segment includes a broad range of products used in the baby care, skin care, oral care, wound care and women's health care fields, as well as nutritional and over-the-counter pharmaceutical products, and wellness and prevention platforms. The Baby Care franchise includes the JOHNSON'S ® Baby line of products. Major brands in the Skin Care franchise include the AVEENO ® ; CLEAN & CLEAR ® ; JOHNSON'S ® Adult; NEUTROGENA ® ; RoC ® ; LUBRIDERM ® ; Dabao; and Vendôme product lines. The Oral Care franchise includes the LISTERINE ® and REACH ® oral care lines of products. The Wound Care franchise includes BAND-AID ® brand adhesive bandages and PURELL ® instant hand sanitizer products. Major brands in the Women's Health franchise are the CAREFREE ® Pantiliners; STAYFREE ® sanitary protection products; and Vania Expansion products. The nutritional and over-the-counter lines include SPLENDA ® , No Calorie Sweetener; the broad family of TYLENOL ® acetaminophen products; SUDAFED ® cold, flu and allergy products; ZYRTEC ® allergy products; MOTRIN ® IB ibuprofen products; and PEPCID ® AC Acid Controller from Johnson & Johnson • Merck Consumer Pharmaceuticals Co. These products are marketed to the general public and sold both to retail outlets and distributors throughout the world.
The Pharmaceutical segment includes products in the following therapeutic areas: anti-infective, antipsychotic, cardiovascular, contraceptive, dermatology, gastrointestinal, hematology, immunology, neurology, oncology, pain management, urology and virology. These products are distributed directly to retailers, wholesalers and health care professionals for prescription use. Key products in the Pharmaceutical segment include: REMICADE ® (infliximab), a biologic approved for the treatment of a number of immune mediated inflammatory diseases; PROCRIT ® (Epoetin alfa, sold outside the U.S. as EPREX ® ), a biotechnology-derived product that stimulates red blood cell production; LEVAQUIN ® (levofloxacin) in the anti-infective field; RISPERDAL ® CONSTA ® (risperidone), a long-acting injectable for the treatment of schizophrenia; CONCERTA ® (methylphenidate HCl), a product for the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder; ACIPHEX ® /PARIET ® , a proton pump inhibitor co-marketed with Eisai Inc.; DURAGESIC ® /Fentanyl Transdermal (fentanyl transdermal system, sold outside the U.S. as DUROGESIC ® ), a treatment for chronic pain that offers a novel delivery system; VELCADE ® (bortezomib), a product for the treatment for multiple myeloma; PREZISTA ® (darunavir) for the treatment of HIV/AIDS patients; and INVEGA ® (paliperidone), a once-daily atypical antipsychotic.
Medical Devices and Diagnostics
The Medical Devices and Diagnostics segment includes a broad range of products distributed to wholesalers, hospitals and retailers, used principally in the professional fields by physicians, nurses, therapists, hospitals, diagnostic laboratories and clinics. These products include Cordis' circulatory disease management products; DePuy's orthopaedic joint reconstruction, spinal care and sports medicine products; Ethicon's surgical care, aesthetics and women's health products; Ethicon Endo-Surgery's minimally invasive surgical products; LifeScan's blood glucose monitoring and insulin delivery products; Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics' professional diagnostic products; and Vistakon's disposable contact lenses. Distribution to these health care professional markets is done both directly and through surgical supply and other dealers.
The international business of Johnson & Johnson is conducted by subsidiaries located in 59 countries outside the United States, which are selling products in virtually all countries throughout the world. The products made and sold in the international business include many of those described above under "- Segments of Business - Consumer," "- Pharmaceutical" and "- Medical Devices and Diagnostics." However, the principal markets, products and methods of distribution in the international business vary with the country and the culture. The products sold in international business include not only those developed in the United States, but also those developed by subsidiaries abroad.
Investments and activities in some countries outside the United States are subject to higher risks than comparable U.S. activities because the investment and commercial climate is influenced by restrictive economic policies and political uncertainties.
Raw materials essential to Johnson & Johnson's operating companies' businesses are generally readily available from multiple sources.
Patents and Trademarks
Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiaries have made a practice of obtaining patent protection on their products and processes where possible. They own or are licensed under a number of patents relating to their products and manufacturing processes, which in the aggregate are believed to be of material importance to Johnson & Johnson in the operation of its businesses. Sales of the Company's largest product, REMICADE ® (infliximab), accounted for approximately 7% of Johnson & Johnson's total revenues for fiscal 2009. Accordingly, the patents related to this product are believed to be material to Johnson & Johnson.
During 2007 through 2009, RISPERDAL ® (risperidone) oral and TOPAMAX ® (topiramate) lost basic patent protection and market exclusivity and became subject to generic competition in the United States and international markets. RISPERDAL ® oral sales declined by 57.7% and 37.8% in 2009 and 2008, respectively. TOPAMAX ® lost market exclusivity in March 2009 and sales declined by 57.9% as compared to 2008. The next significant patent scheduled to expire on December 20, 2010 is for LEVAQUIN ® (levofloxacin), which accounted for 2.5% of the Company's 2009 sales. A pediatric extension for LEVAQUIN ® was granted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA"), which extends market exclusivity in the United States through June 20, 2011.
Johnson & Johnson's operating companies have made a practice of selling their products under trademarks and of obtaining protection for these trademarks by all available means. These trademarks are protected by registration in the United States and other countries where such products are marketed. Johnson & Johnson considers these trademarks in the aggregate to be of material importance in the operation of its businesses.
Worldwide sales do not reflect any significant degree of seasonality; however, spending has been heavier in the fourth quarter of each year than in other quarters. This reflects increased spending decisions, principally for advertising and research and development activity.
In all of their product lines, Johnson & Johnson's operating companies compete with companies both large and small, and both local and global, located throughout the world. Competition exists in all product lines without regard to the number and size of the competing companies involved. Competition in research, involving the development and the improvement of new and existing products and processes, is particularly significant. The development of new and innovative products is important to Johnson & Johnson's success in all areas of its business. This also includes protecting the Company's portfolio of intellectual property. The competitive environment requires substantial investments in continuing research and in maintaining sales forces. In addition, the development and maintenance of customer demand for the Company's consumer products involves significant expenditures for advertising and promotion.
Research and Development
Research activities represent a significant part of Johnson & Johnson's subsidiaries' businesses. Major research facilities are located not only in the United States, but also in Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Israel, Japan, the Netherlands, Singapore and the United Kingdom. The costs of worldwide Company-sponsored research activities relating to the development of new products, improvement of existing products, technical support of products and compliance with governmental regulations for the protection of consumers and patients (excluding purchased in-process research and development charges for fiscal 2008 and 2007), amounted to $7.0 billion, $7.6 billion and $7.7 billion for fiscal years 2009, 2008 and 2007, respectively. These costs are charged directly to expense, or directly against income, in the year in which incurred.
Johnson & Johnson's operating companies are subject to a variety of U.S. and international environmental protection measures. Johnson & Johnson believes that its operations comply in all material respects with applicable environmental laws and regulations. Johnson & Johnson's compliance with these requirements did not during the past year, and is not expected to, have a material effect upon its capital expenditures, cash flows, earnings or competitive position.
Most of Johnson & Johnson's businesses are subject to varying degrees of governmental regulation in the countries in which operations are conducted, and the general trend is toward increasingly stringent regulation. In the United States, the drug, device, diagnostics and cosmetic industries have long been subject to regulation by various federal and state agencies, primarily as to product safety, efficacy, manufacturing, advertising, labeling and safety reporting. The exercise of broad regulatory powers by the FDA continues to result in increases in the amounts of testing and documentation required for FDA clearance of new drugs and devices and a corresponding increase in the expense of product introduction. Similar trends are also evident in major markets outside of the United States.
The costs of human health care have been and continue to be a subject of study, investigation and regulation by governmental agencies and legislative bodies around the world. In the United States, attention has been focused on drug prices and profits and programs that encourage doctors to write prescriptions for particular drugs or recommend, use or purchase particular medical devices. Payers have become a more potent force in the market place and increased attention is being paid to drug and medical device pricing, appropriate drug and medical device utilization and the quality and costs of health care.
The regulatory agencies under whose purview Johnson & Johnson's operating companies operate have administrative powers that may subject those companies to such actions as product withdrawals, recalls, seizure of products and other civil and criminal sanctions. In some cases, Johnson & Johnson's operating companies may deem it advisable to initiate product recalls.
In addition, business practices in the health care industry have come under increased scrutiny, particularly in the United States, by government agencies and state attorneys general, and resulting investigations and prosecutions carry the risk of significant civil and criminal penalties.

Item 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
The information set forth in Note 21 "Legal Proceedings" under "Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements" on pages 57 through 63 of the Annual Report is incorporated herein by reference and filed as Exhibit 13 to this Report on Form 10-K.
The Company or its subsidiaries are parties to a number of proceedings brought under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act, commonly known as Superfund, and comparable state laws, in which the primary relief sought is the cost of past and future remediation. While it is not feasible to predict or determine the outcome of these proceedings, in the opinion of the Company, such proceedings would not have a material adverse effect on the results of operations, cash flows or financial position of the Company.

|Item 9A.||CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES|
Disclosure Controls and Procedures. At the end of the period covered by this report, the Company evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of its disclosure controls and procedures. The Company's disclosure controls and procedures are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the Company's management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. William C. Weldon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and Dominic J. Caruso, Chief Financial Officer, reviewed and participated in this evaluation. Based on this evaluation, Messrs. Weldon and Caruso concluded that, as of the end of the period covered by this report, the Company's disclosure controls and procedures were effective.
Management's Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting. Under Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, management is required to assess the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting as of the end of each fiscal year and report, based on that assessment, whether the Company's internal control over financial reporting is effective.
Management of the Company is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. The Company's internal control over financial reporting is designed to provide reasonable assurance as to the reliability of the Company's financial reporting and the preparation of external financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.
Internal control over financial reporting, no matter how well designed, has inherent limitations. Therefore, internal control over financial reporting determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and may not prevent or detect all misstatements. Moreover, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
The Company's management has assessed the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting as of January 3, 2010. In making this assessment, the Company used the criteria established by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) in "Internal Control-Integrated Framework." These criteria are in the areas of control environment, risk assessment, control activities, information and communication, and monitoring. The Company's assessment included extensive documenting, evaluating and testing the design and operating effectiveness of its internal control over financial reporting.
Based on the Company's processes and assessment, as described above, management has concluded that, as of January 3, 2010, the Company's internal control over financial reporting was effective.
The effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting as of January 3, 2010 has been audited by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, an independent registered public accounting firm, as stated in their report, which appears in the "Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm" on page 64 of the Annual Report, which is incorporated herein by reference and filed as Exhibit 13 to this Report on Form 10-K.
Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting. During the fiscal quarter ended January 3, 2010, there were no changes in the Company's internal control over financial reporting identified in connection with the evaluation of such referred to above in this Item 9A that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company's internal control over financial reporting.
