SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Jan. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- MedPredict Market Research, a global provider of pharmaceutical competitive intelligence and market research, has published two new reports providing critical strategic insight for companies developing therapies to treat hematologic malignancies. These reports are based on primary interviews conducted with hematology experts from North America immediately following the American Society of Hematology (ASH) annual meeting.
The first report, entitled "Thought Leader Insight & Analysis - AML/MDS," focuses on acute myelogenous leukemia and myelodysplastic syndrome. "This report highlights the most important data presented at ASH, and clarifies the ways these data will change clinical practice," according to Jeff Berk, MedPredict president. "A key emphasis of this report is transplant, and how pharmaceuticals and biologicals better prepare patients for transplant. Our thought leader panel discusses how to achieve complete responses, how they are thinking about combination therapy, and new ways for attacking quiescent malignant stem cells."
The second report, entitled "Thought Leader Insight & Analysis - Multiple Myeloma/Lymphoma," focuses on how the clinical data presented at ASH is likely to translate into changing treatment paradigms. "This report brings together the diverse perspectives of experts who grapple with a wide spectrum of issues related to these hematologic malignancies, including clinical pathology, community based patients, tertiary care treatment, and medical oncology from the strategic vantage point of clinical commercial development," said Berk.
Topics this report addresses include:
-- Reimbursement: oral vs. parenteral; induction vs. maintenance. -- Multiple myeloma/lymphoma treatment strategies, including: - transplant eligible/non-transplant eligible; - induction/maintenance; - doublets/triplets; - community/tertiary care; - +65 years old/younger; and - approval pathways.
