Breast cancer affects thousands of individuals in Brazil and Mexico, and is managed with premium-priced agents, chemotherapy, and hormone therapy. In Mexico, coverage of treatment varies across the different healthcare programs; in Brazil, Herceptin is covered, but the uniqueness of public funding for oncology drugs makes public coverage of other treatments limited. The future will bring an influx of new drugs and biosimilars, and while both countries are eager to adopt new technologies, they have limited budgets—in an increasingly competitive market, only drugs that meet the clinical and economic expectations of both countries will achieve success. This A&R analysis provides key insights for navigating the HER2-positive breast cancer market in Brazil and Mexico, while adapting brand agents’ value message to payers’ and physicians’ needs and expectations in each country.
Decision Resources Group’s Access and Reimbursement module for Breast Cancer in Brazil and Mexico explores the prescribing patterns for current HER2-targeted therapies, the potential impact of the anticipated arrival of novel therapies, and key national and regional market access factors that will shape the use of HER2-targeted therapies over the next two to three years. This content draws on insights from 100 surveyed physicians and from interviews with six payers in Brazil and Mexico, all of whom have influence at the regional or national level.
