"Digital Landscape: Breast Cancer", analyzes digital activities undertaken by pharma in support of therapies for Breast Cancer.

  • The report includes digital activities directed towards patients and/or HCPs
  • The geographic scope of the report is the United States, EUCAN(Canada and the 5EU countries: UK, Germany, France, Italy & Spain).
  • The main focus of the report is hormonal and targeted therapies, and certain branded chemotherapy drugs.

Key Highlights

  • US Patients: Strong digital support for US breast cancer patients in the US, particularly from Pfizer, Novartis and AstraZeneca. Most recent branded activity seen from Lilly and Novartis in the CDK4/6 inhibitor space. Most unbranded and social media activity focuses on supporting patients with metastatic breast cancer. Few breast cancer-specific mobile apps detected in the US.
  • US HCPs: There is little support for HCPs in the breast cancer space beyond branded. AstraZeneca, Genentech, Novartis and Pfizer offer examples of strong branded resources. The pharma-sponsored unbranded and mobile app landscapes are sparse. Opportunities may exist to develop or sponsor content with trusted non-pharma organizations. HCP-directed social media activity restricted to posts from corporate accounts.
  • EUCAN Patients: Good support for EUCAN breast cancer patients from pharma, particularly those in France. Support is weakest in the UK and Spain. Strong unbranded support but no multi-country, local-language campaigns seen. Majority of unbranded sites supported by social media. Good examples of pharma-sponsored mobile apps. Features include disease tracking and reminders, as well as emotional support.
  • EUCAN HCPs: Limited pharma-sponsored support for EUCAN HCPs in breast cancer, with most activity seen in Germany. The unbranded and mobile app landscapes are undeveloped, and like the US, partnerships with non-pharma organizations may offer more effective opportunities to engage with and support HCPs.

Companies Mentioned: Pfizer, Novartis, AstraZeneca, Roche / Genentech, Eli Lilly, Eisai, Puma Technology, Celgene, R-Pharma, MidatechPharma, Kwoya Kirin, TerSera Therapeutics, Amgen.
