IMS LifeCycle 2/12/ Introduction
IMS LifeCycle 2/12/2014 3
IMS LifeCycle 2/12/ R&D Focus - Introduction This IMS service provides in-depth profiles on over 26,000 drugs in R&D, from preclinical to marketed phases, including commercial and scientific activities. R&D Focus is part of IMS LifeCycle, which enables the reviews of a drug life cycle at three critical stages: R&D stages, launch activities and patent protection worldwide.
IMS LifeCycle 2/12/ R&D Focus Statistics Over 26,000 records including over 9,700 drugs in active R&D worldwide Searches on 36 fields including mode of administration, mechanism of action, indication, phases of development Covers over 5,600 Biotechnology products More than 3,000 companies/organisations Over 3,200 licensing opportunities Company coverage is global (focus on the USA and Europe): Europe: 30% The Americas: 51% Middle East: 3% Asia Pacific: 13% Australasia: 3% Up to 800 updates every month, and up to 100 new drugs added every month
IMS LifeCycle 2/12/ R&D Focus Data Content Compound details/Chemical structures Latest development information (Latest News) Company activities (developers, licensors, licensees relationships) Latest phase including Discovery and Technology stages and phase by country and indication Around 1,900 indications (i.e. Breast Cancer to Zollinger-Ellison syndrome) Over 750 pharmacological actions (i.e. ACE inhibitors or 5HT4 antagonist) Sales profiles for the top or fastest growing therapeutic classes, featuring previous years background financial info Basic patent information (initial priority details) Commercial/scientific summary, including regulatory progress, clinical trials, analysts predictions Development history
IMS LifeCycle 2/12/ R&D Focus An evolving service
IMS LifeCycle 2/12/ Sources of information Strength of the Editorial team Team of around 15 in-house editors and free-lancers Improved timeliness with strict guidelines and prioritisation process to include the information gathered in the service within certain timeframe. Creation of specialist roles within the editorial team:with editors concentrating on company information, pipeline project and analysts predictions information.
IMS LifeCycle 2/12/ Sources of Information Primary & Secondary Primary research via: Company interviews, with drug-specific questionnaires Company R&D days & Company investor conferences Scientific conferences (where specific ATCs are covered, I.e. neuroscience or oncology) Business/Partnering conferences (where partnering forums are held and cover all ATCs Attendance in the USA and Europe (where companies from all over the world are represented), and also in Japan and Australia. Secondary research: Analyst briefings Conferences posters, conferences abstracts, review journals Regulatory data from the various regulatory agencies such as the US FDA, EU EMEA and the Japanese NHI as well as Patents and other intellectual property sources Online services and internet services
IMS LifeCycle 2/12/ Example of a drug record
IMS LifeCycle 2/12/ New Product Focus Introduction This IMS service covers new product launches by country, allowing for the evaluation of successful launch strategies world-wide. New Product Focus is part of IMS LifeCycle, which enables the reviews of a drug life cycle at three critical stages: R&D stages, launch activities and patent protection worldwide.
IMS LifeCycle 2/12/ New Product Focus Statistics Compendium of back data from 1982 Coverage of over 70 major markets Over 280,000 launches with 178,000 distinct trade names, each of which representing a first launch in a country (first pack) Biotechnology, Generics and excipients NCEs (New Chemical Entities) - when and where a novel compound was first launched Over 1,000 new pharmaceutical products reported every month
IMS LifeCycle 2/12/ New Product Focus Data Content New Product Focus records the very first launch of a product in a particular country and identifies the indication and price at the time of this initial launch; featuring: Ingredient & Local trade name Marketing company Date & country of launch Therapeutic class code & Indication (when available) Composition (including form and dose) Presentation (pack information) Launch price data recorded in the local country currency but their level differ depending on the country, as follows: –Retail Selling Price (RSP), Retail Purchase Price (RPP), Manufacturers Selling Price (MSP), National Health Insurance (NHI); i.e. Japan, Average wholesale price (AWP); i.e. USA Historical data - records not updated - hence always showing original companies and initial pack info at launch
IMS LifeCycle 2/12/ New Product Focus Sources of information Data collection methods vary from market to market. In most industrialized countries, wholesaler to pharmacy transaction data is collected directly from wholesalers. In other countries and for all hospital data, a representative sample is obtained and then projected to produce national estimates. Regular validation studies are undertaken by IMS in conjunction with the pharmaceutical industry (EPHMRA). New Product Focus identifies new chemical entities or new active substances by referring to R&D Focus, patents and regulatory data
IMS LifeCycle 2/12/ New Product Focus Uses of a product launch information database Comprehensive world-wide analysis of product launches Monitor global product activity to track launches in all markets and sectors Valuable pricing information Benchmark product pricing strategy against market leaders, including pricing of generics Unique on the market Launch strategies Search for key comparator drug launches to identify successful launch strategies of a product extension, looking at indication, or specific dose forms
IMS LifeCycle 2/12/ Patent Focus Introduction This IMS service provides evaluated patent information for marketed drugs and those in phase III and above active R&D, allowing the user to plan effectively for patent expiry far into the future. Patent Focus is part of IMS LifeCycle, which enables the reviews of a drug life cycle at three critical stages: R&D stages, launch activities and patent protection worldwide
IMS LifeCycle 2/12/ Different patent types per compound Covering all angles Aim of originators is to cover the invention from all angles Product patent Claims the novel compound - generally most important Process patent Claims the process for preparing the compound e.g. gene expression technology to enhance the production of recombinant proteins Method of use patent Claims the method of treating/preventing a condition e.g. method for treating TNF-mediated inflammatory diseases, specifically arthritis Composition patent Claims the therapeutic compositions e.g. sustained release capsules
IMS LifeCycle 2/12/ Patent Focus Statistics Over 3,000 patent families with CAS (Chemical Abstracts Service) numbers Over 139,000 patent records worldwide - with numbers, filing and estimated expiry dates Covers 120 countries, including European Patent and applications Covers biotech products: 17,800 patents records where mode of action is biotechnology Covers patent extensions including Supplementary Protection Certificates (SPCs), Japanese and USA extensions (i.e. Paediatric exclusivities) 8,500 additions per year
IMS LifeCycle 2/12/ Patent Focus Data content Over 32 fields to search from including: Product Synonyms (trade names) Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) registry numbers Patent originator Therapy Class / Indication Patent numbers and filing dates by country Patent types (I.e. product, method of use, process, composition etc…) Estimated patent expiry dates and SPCs by country Commercial comments by country Final product chemical structures Please note: Patent Focus does not include Data Exclusivity data, featured in the Market Segmentation data.
IMS LifeCycle 2/12/ Patent Focus Sources of information Patent information emanates from official patent documentation relating to projects in development, either a patent application or a granted patent document Close relationship with CAS, the Chemical Abstract Services (American Chemical Society) to maintain up-to-date records within the service Close contact with patent attorneys at local country levels and work with official patent journals to reflect the latest amendments to the patent laws Secondary resources, such as the Orange Book, official country patent journals, online and internet services are also monitored to update information on patent legal status, lapsing, granting, extensions, SPCs, paediatric exclusivities, marketing exclusivities, orphan drug status
