Thomson CompuMark Reduces Drug Approval Delays by Identifying Conflicting Trademarks in International Markets

NORTH QUINCY, Mass., Jan. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Thomson CompuMark, the global leader in trademark searching and brand protection solutions and part of Thomson Reuters, today announced the launch of Global Pharmaceutical Search, a new service providing targeted, global trademark intelligence in a single online report.

Avoiding potential confusion among pharmaceutical brands, which can sometimes lead to prescription errors, is a critically important public health concern. To address this, regulatory bodies in the United States and Europe have implemented rigorous processes for evaluating and approving pharmaceutical brand names. Searching globally for confusingly similar trademarks early in the process is important to minimize the chance of name rejection, which can be a costly misstep for pharmaceutical companies.

New Global Pharmaceutical Search addresses this critical need. It leverages Thomson CompuMark's industry-leading global trademark content—including common law and web content—to give brand owners comprehensive yet concise information on trademark availability from key pharmaceutical markets, all in a single report.

Search coverage includes Thomson CompuMark's proprietary, quality-checked trademark office records, web and domain name coverage, and U.S. and European regulatory and industry-specific sources, including pharmaceutical names in use. Brand owners can select the registers that match their product strategy, including the U.S., U.K., Spain, France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Benelux, and Canada.

Designed to save users valuable time, Global Pharmaceutical Search results are delivered online and also include access to the Analysis Tool on SERION®. This easy-to-use online analysis tool enables users to rapidly pinpoint potential conflicts, perform follow-up research on marks of interest with a single click, and create and share custom reports on their findings in seconds.

"In today's global pharmaceutical marketplace, brand owners need the most complete, global view of the trademark landscape to minimize business risk," said Anne Olson, vice president of Global Operations for Thomson CompuMark. "Our new Global Pharmaceutical Search provides that insight in a single, concise report that facilitates more informed decisions in less time. It's just another way we're using our global trademark expertise to help our customers launch the pharmaceuticals patients need – faster and more efficiently."

Olson noted that Thomson CompuMark also shares its global trademark expertise through industry-leading publications, including a recent Special Report on Pharmaceutical Trademark Trends. This report provides an overview of global pharmaceutical trademark trends, regulatory changes and clearance challenges, as well as best practices for selecting, researching and clearing new pharmaceutical brands. Visit the Thomson CompuMark website to request a copy of this Special Report.
