Educating the Marketplace to Support Successful Oncology Product Launches

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The bio-pharmaceutical marketplace - and the Oncology therapeutic area in particular - continues to evolve as new medicines and technologies create valuable market opportunities. It's in this competitive and challenging environment that organizations with new Oncology products are scrutinizing their strategies and tactics to support market education.

Commercial executives in the Oncology therapeutic area make clinical and compound data disclosures earlier than other therapeutic areas, according to new research from Best Practices, LLC. For instance, 40 percent of commercial Oncology leaders said they communicate mechanism of action data at pre-clinical whereas only 29 percent of the total study participants said they communicate MOA at that time, according to the study.

The report, Shaping the Marketplace to Support Successful Oncology Product Launches: Tactics for Educating KOLs, Physicians, Patients and Payers, contains a plethora of benchmark metrics on the most effective physician, payer and patient education practices conducted from clinical development through launch. The 150-page report contains almost 500 metrics to help inform launch leaders in the Oncology area on the most effective type and timing of market education practices during the full development cycle.
