Surveyed Payers Are Most Receptive to Therapies Offering a Median Overall Survival Benefit over Available Therapies, According to a New Report from Decision Resources Group
BURLINGTON, Mass., June 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources Group (DRG) finds that, according to surveyed U.S. and European oncologists, improvement in efficacy endpoints are the most influential factors in prescribing decisions for previously treated EGFR wild-type/untested non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). DRG also finds that improved median overall survival and increased progression-free survival are the greatest unmet needs in this indication. Surveyed oncologists express enthusiasm for PD-1 monoclonal antibody inhibitors and anticipate that Bristol-Myers Squibb/Ono Pharmaceutical's nivolumab and Merck's pembrolizumab will demonstrate efficacy advantages over currently available therapies. Interviewed thought leaders also expressed enthusiasm for AstraZeneca's MEK inhibitor selumetinib in combination with docetaxel (generics) for the treatment of KRAS-mutant patients.
