How patient insights were brought to life with graphic novel outputs
Our client was developing a novel therapy for the treatment of a rare disease in which patients suffer acute symptomatic attacks. Their new product promised greater freedom from these acute attacks and therefore from the associated burden. The challenge was to understand why many patients remain on older therapy types and how the pathway to more modern therapy options, with better efficacy and side effect profiles, could be mapped out for physicians and patients. Our client further requested that insights from the research were brought to life in the insights workshop meeting in a new and impactful way.
Fast and furious: What will the fast tracking of approvals for key drugs mean for China's pharma market?
China has long been a magnet for pharmaceutical multinationals looking to offset flattening growth in established markets
It offers rapid economic development, a population of around 1.4 billion with limited access to cutting-edge medicine, and changing lifestyles that have raised health expectations. Expanded access to state-funded healthcare, population aging and a growing burden of chronic disease are creating new opportunities for innovative drugs alongside low-cost generics.

Hyperlipidemia: Are the PCSK9 inhibitors bouncing back?
This article, published by Pharma Times May 2019, considers the current landscape for PCSK9 inhibitors and whether there is a brighter future on the horizon for this class of drugs.
The promise of a new era of cholesterol management, heralded by the launch of highly effective PCSK9 inhibitors, has been complicated by significant barriers to uptake of the next-generation products in multiple markets. These obstacles partly reflect initial premium pricing of the two available PCSK9 inhibitors, Praluent (alirocumab) and Repatha (evolocumab). Price differentials have been all the more marked given the established reliability of low-cost, genericised statins as a tool for lowering cholesterol. In that light, many physicians, thought leaders and payers opted to wait for persuasive outcomes data that would substantiate the ability of the PCSK9 inhibitors to offset higher costs with long-term gains in preventing mortality, hospitalisation or other serious cardiovascular events.
