Market Analysis for Comanapracil – Launching a Cancer Drug
Case Scenario: Launching a Cancer Drug: Comanapracil
You are a pharmaceutical executive and you are preparing a presentation for a Board of Directors. You believe that your firm, Ropache, may have developed a promising new drug, Comanapracil, which seems to arrest the progress of breast cancer for 2 years with no significant side effects. Clinical trials suggest that the drug is 100% effective for 2 years. After 2 years, tumor growth resumes at the same rate. Therefore, Comanapracil can only be used for a 2-year course, after which it loses its effectiveness.
Create a brief draft slide presentation of your market analysis including speaker’s notes addressing the following:
– Explain the relationship between spending on healthcare per capital and the life expectancy in Germany, the United States, Ghana, and Brazil and whether there is a relationship between life expectancy and healthcare spending.
– Summarize the structure of each country’s healthcare system.
– Describe the results of your SWOT analysis for marketing the drug in each country.
Recommend to countries you determined to be most attractive for marketing Comanapracil and explain why they are attractive marketing the drug.
– Describe how you would explain to the IQWIG (Institute for Quality and Efficiency in Health Care) how much gain in health outcomes the drug will provide, whether other drugs provide similar effectiveness in treating breast cancer, and how people will benefit from the drug including why some will benefit more from the drug more than others.
