Decision Resources, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms for pharmaceutical and healthcare issues, today announced the launch of its new Biosimilars Advisory Service. The service keeps biopharma clients up-to-date on developments in the rapidly evolving biosimilars space, covering every angle of the biosimilars industry ranging from regulatory, legislative and corporate activities to payer and physician perspectives, and includes:

  --  Quarterly webinars detailing major developments   --  Event-driven analyst calls addressing key market changes   --  Customized event briefings to address the company-specific impact of       market activity   --  Therapeutic area-specific primary research on payer and physician       attitudes toward biosimilar adoption, reimbursement and market drivers   --  Ten-year, annualized therapeutic area-specific market forecasts for       biosimilars, plus brand and biosimilar forecasts for more than 20       brands in the U.S., Japan and EU5 (Germany, France, Italy, Spain, UK)  

The primary research and forecasting modules included with the Biosimilars Advisory Service cover three therapeutic areas:

  --  Oncology: granulocyte colony-stimulating factors (G-CSFs) and       monoclonal antibodies (mAbs)   --  Immunology and Infectious Disease: tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-a)       inhibitors and pegylated interferon-alphas (IFNs)   --  Endocrinology and Nephrology: insulins, human growth hormones and       erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs)  

There is a webinar scheduled for May 5, 2010 that will kick off the Biosimilar Advisory Service. The webinar entitled Understanding the Biosimilars Landscape: How Will Legislative and Regulatory Changes Affect Corporate Strategies? will discuss how U.S. health care reform and recent changes in pricing and reimbursement strategies in Europe will affect the biosimilars market.

"The biosimilars market is constantly evolving, and Decision Resources' Biosimilars Advisory Service will provide our biopharma clients not only with the knowledge to stay on top of current developments and trends, but also the insight and analysis to maximize opportunities that will ultimately defend and grow their business," said Michael Malecki, Ph.D., product director with Decision Resources. "The comprehensive coverage we provide--from primary research on payer and physician attitudes in the U.S. and EU on biosimilars to market forecasts to the event-driven updates and analysis clients will receive throughout the year--make it a vital service for successful business planning in the biosimilars arena."
