Latest Pharmaceutical Launch Strategies Demonstrate Growing Importance of Thought Leader Engagement at Market Entry

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Oct. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- While some newly-developed bio-pharmaceutical products thrive upon launch, many more struggle in today's crowded, competitive marketplace.  

In order to differentiate the treatment benefits of their new products, companies must think strategically about clinical and scientific thought leaders, targeting and engaging those who often serve as the gatekeepers to a product's acceptance in the medical community.

In fact, according to "Success Factors and Failure Points in Cardiovascular Product Launches," more than 80% of participating bio-pharmaceutical companies in Cardiology have found that engaging thought leaders in the actual protocol designs for late-Phase clinical trials is a highly effective method for building product and treatment momentum.

In addition, participating companies rate Advisory Boards and Clinical Trial Involvement as the most effective strategies for cultivating a successful environment at launch, according to this primary research conducted by Best Practices, LLC.

The study, which examines the product manufacturers in the Cardiology therapeutic area, provides insights to a critical core set of functions and activities during product launch, such as engagement of thought leaders and education of key stakeholders.

Download a complimentary study summary at that includes best practices drawn from extensive primary research with 44 executives and managers from 38 leading pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device companies.

Other key insights include:

  • Thought leader engagement is a critical success factor across all therapeutic areas. However, key relationship tactics score quite differently across Cardiology, Diabetes and the multi-therapeutic area class.
  • Payers and patient advocacy are becoming more important constituents for educating the market. Importantly, Diabetes and Cardiology accord different relative importance to each of these constituents.

The full 182-page report presents launch leaders' perspectives on the current and future risk levels for an array of pitfall factors that can affect a new product launch.  In all, the study contains more than 750 benchmark metrics and 39 executive narratives from leaders in the industry.
