Physicians Estimate That if Approved, Ceftobiprole Will Steal Nearly a Third of Zyvox's Patient Share in the Treatment of Nosocomial Pneumonia
Date:9/22/2008

Most Important Factors Driving Nosocomial Pneumonia Prescribing in

Hospitals Are Infectious Disease Consults and ATS/IDSA Guidelines

Arlington Medical Resources and Decision Resources Introduce the New

Hospital Anti-Infectives Insight Series

MALVERN, Penn. and WALTHAM, Mass., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Arlington Medical Resources (AMR) and Decision Resources find that over 80 percent of surveyed hospital physicians estimate that if approved, Basilea/Johnson & Johnson's ceftobiprole will steal, on average, nearly a third of Pfizer's Zyvox patient share in the treatment of nosocomial pneumonia. In addition, several product profiles that are analogous to ceftobiprole and other antibiotics were presented to physicians to see how they would compete within the nosocomial pneumonia drug market. The new report entitled Hospital Anti-Infectives Insight Series: Nosocomial Pneumonia found that the ceftobiprole analogue profile is well positioned to compete in this drug market.

"We presented several antibiotic product profiles to physicians we surveyed that are analogous to ceftobiprole, Forest's ceftaroline in combination with a beta-lactamase inhibitor and Theravance/Astellas's telavancin to assess the potential positioning of these agents in the future nosocomial pneumonia market," states John Lebbos, M.D., Vice President of Infectious Diseases at Decision Resources. "Physicians were highly receptive to these profiles -- in fact, 67 percent of physicians indicated that the ceftobiprole analogue profile is well positioned to compete in the large empiric, first-line therapy market for nosocomial pneumonia."

The report also finds that hospital prescribing patterns are mainly driven by an institution's infectious disease consults and by guidelines presented by the American Thoracic Society (ATS) and the Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA). A hospital's protocol and local guidelines play the next important role. Therefore, key stakeholders such as hospital infectious disease specialists and clinicians developing an institution's guidelines typically have broad influence on prescribing well beyond their own patients.

AMR and Decision Resources' new Hospital Anti-Infectives Insight Series analyzes hospital antibiotic prescribing patterns using AMR's comprehensive and highly detailed clinical data in conjunction with Decision Resources' disease area knowledge, primary research and extensive understanding of emerging therapies and forecasts. These reports examine the reasons behind physicians' product preferences, factors driving hospital antibiotic prescribing patterns and receptivity to emerging antibiotics.

-- Hospital Anti-Infective Insight Series: Nosocomial Pneumonia

-- Hospital Anti-infective Insight Series: Skin & Soft Tissue Infections

-- Hospital Anti-Infective Insight Series: U.S. Antibiotic Usage Patterns
