When biopharmaceutical products launch in the European Union, even experienced manufacturers can struggle to overcome the demanding standards of European payers. The complex market authorisation requirements and subsequent access decisions across 28 countries can lead to challenging timelines and confusing rollouts. Unfortunately for manufacturers, the future of European commercial planning is likely to become more challenging, as nations look to raise evidence standards and increase the scrutiny of pricing. Looking ahead over the next ten years, CBPartners is tracking many policy and payer trends which will affect the playing field for future launches. Examining these key trends in detail can provide further understanding of how manufacturers can create an “Early Asset Success Plan” for new products.
As a class, manufacturers of PDxs (PD1s / PD-L1) are enjoying great success when it comes to marketing authorisation, with four of the five brands achieving multiple FDA and EMA approvals. CBPartners takes a closer look at the successes and failures in this highly competitive class of drugs.
