Market Assessment in Oncology Using APLD

At the annual PMSA conference 2015, Axtria’s Sudeep Saha and Celgene’s Jennifer Maurer will share an approach that demonstrates how to use patient-level data in a robust way to estimate market opportunity and product penetration in the field of Oncology.


The presentation will highlight some key aspects of the approach/analytics including:

  • Accurate identification of a defined market, by using a deep clinical knowledge of the disease area to determine indicators in available patient level data.
  • Identify specific treatment regimens based on longitudinal history of patient treatment, and also understand product usage by lines of therapy.
  • Align patient treatment activity to accounts, by linking patients to physicians and physicians to accounts
  • Generate estimates of penetration by product at an account level, by triangulating across different data sources to avoid potential for bias due to limited or unrepresentative samples.
  • Size account opportunity, through a scaling process that considers coverage at an account level.

A specific application of this approach was used for an oncology drug that is indicated for 3 different tumor types and a specific treatment regimen within each tumor type. The presenters will showcase how patient-level data from Rx and medical claims, can be used to develop an approach for estimating market opportunity and product penetration at an account level for Oncology products.
