BioTrends Prepares to Field ChartTrends(TM) Reports to Cover the Use of Biologic Agents in Psoriasis and Rheumatoid Arthritis
Date:3/16/2009

EXTON, Pa., March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- BioTrends Research Group, Inc. has been covering the biologics market for Psoriasis and RA through its TreatmentTrends(TM) series which are syndicated primary research reports based on self reported survey data collected from Dermatologists and Rheumatologists. The company is now expanding these offerings in the form of ChartTrends(TM) reports which aim to compare self-reported treatment patterns with actual patient level data.

The ChartTrends(TM) reports will each offer comprehensive insight into the management and use of biologics used in the treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and Psoriasis. Each report is derived from analysis of actual patient chart data and laboratory results collected from over 1,000 RA and Psoriasis patients currently being treated with biologics. The retrospective audit captures a wide range of patient demographic data, the range of dose variability, co-morbidities, concomitant medications, and laboratory values for the past year. Medication changes and actions taken during office visits are highlighted to understand the triggers for therapy initiation and adjustment. The final report also compares the self-reported practice patterns with actual patient records in order identify gaps in care.

These studies are being undertaken to understand the treatment algorithm for biologic initiation, how each of the biologic brands is typically used, what triggers brand switching, and what patient characteristics (age, co-morbidities, insurance type) influence treatment decisions. Additionally, the study will assess familiarity and interest in several late stage biologics in development (Roche's ACTEMRA, Centocor's SIMPONI, and UCB's CIMZIA in RA and Centocor's STELARA and Abbott's ABT-874 in Psoriasis). BioTrends, which has been offering ChartTrends(TM) reports since 2005, plans to publish the findings in June.
