Date:9/3/2010

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The Medical Affairs function arguably plays the most critical role in a biopharmaceutical organization, with heavy responsibilities across areas such as clinical development, scientific publications, KOL development, and medical education. These areas must operate effectively for new products to succeed. Appropriate spending across these activities is one of the challenges facing the Medical Affairs function as it attempts to balance its different roles across the organization.

According to recent Best Practices, LLC research, 37 percent of Medical Affairs spending, on average, is allocated for medical/clinical research, with the top quartile of respondents spending more than 60 percent for the clinical function. Meanwhile, medical education takes up 18 percent of allocations, according to the study.
