    There are two different industries relating to medical treatment/research. The first is the drug manufacturers. Next are the bio-techs. drug manufacturers develop the prescription drugs people use every day. Bio-tech companies are involved in developing procedures/technology for the medical industry. For example a bio-tech company may work to develop and manufacture prosthetic limbs for amputees, or may manufacture heart valves. They might even be in the business of cloning or growing human tissues. Do some of your own research.

    Large drug manufacturers traded publicly on American exchanges include:

    Eli Lilly & Co. (LLY)

    Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (BMY)

    AstraZeneca plc (AZN)

    Abbott Laboratories (ABT)

    Your lack of knowledge in the healthcare industry scares me. You should definitely stay away until you can answer your own question.
