Ipsos Healthcare Launches Syndicated Multi-Stakeholder Biosimilar Impact Study in Oncology

Tuesday, May 26, 2015

New York, NY – Ipsos Healthcare has developed a syndicated Multi-Stakeholder Biosimilar Impact Study to illuminate the impact on cancer treatment of ‘biosimilars’ (subsequent versions of innovator biopharmaceuticals created by a different manufacturer following patent expiry). It follows the successful launch of Ipsos’ syndicated Biosimilar Impact Study in the autoimmune arena in 2014.

Developed in response to the ongoing launch of oncology biosimilars in US and European markets, the new syndicated study will support pharma and biotechs in their strategic decision-making. It will combine robust patient-level data from the market-leading Global Oncology Monitor with perceptual research among doctors and payers. Subscribers will gain an understanding of both physicians’ intent to prescribe the drugs across the relevant oncology indications, and payers’ perceptions of biosimilars.

Specifically, the study will enable forecasting of the uptake of biosimilars in each country, topological segmentation of patients based on eligibility, physicians’ awareness of different biosimilars/manufacturers and their likelihood to switch, payers’ perceptions of biosimilars and anticipated formulary/guideline placement, and more.

Commented Rita Caldeira, Research Director, EU Oncology Monitor,

“Given the ongoing introduction of biosimilars in oncology, it is critical to understand how these products will impact current treatment practices – both for manufacturers of branded biologic products and those developing biosimilar options. The study has already generated valuable insights in the autoimmune market.”

Added Mark Scazafave, Head of Americas & European Oncology Monitors,

“Payers will play an important role in the evolution of access to biosimilars. It is therefore essential to understand their perceptions as well as the potential leverage points that exist during the approval process, and how this differs by country.”
