Successful Strategies and Innovative Practices for Bringing FDC Products to Market
Date:3/24/2011

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., March 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The pharmaceutical industry has turned to lifecycle planning as one of the strategies to offset lackluster pipelines and patent loss. Fixed dose combination (FDC) products not only offer an opportunity to extend patent life for branded products but also the chance to offer payers and patients a differentiated product with a therapeutic benefit.

"If you want either to expand an indication or go to a second generation launch, you've got to think about that right when your initial Phase III is done or shortly after you've launched the product that you're going to be including in that fixed dose," one R&D veteran noted in the report.

Some of the issues addressed in this research include:

- Years from decision to develop through launch

- Cost of FDC product development Approximate

- Difficulty areas for bringing FDC product to market

- Reasons for partnering with another company to develop FDC product

- Time lapsed f
