The Rx Marketer's Reference Guide, 2nd Edition presents the sequential flow of required product development, launch, and post-launch information. It allows brand managers, the Product Development Team, the Life Cycle Management Team, and other participants to understand their roles and responsibilities and how they fit in the overall commercial aspects of drug development, launch and marketing.

How pharmaceutical products are developed, approved, reimbursed and marketed will be undergoing fundamental changes at least through 2020. The use of genomics, databases, advanced technologies, and biomarkers will speed candidate identification, decrease the size of potential patient populations, enable outcomes-based reimbursement, and, for select products, decrease clinical trial/development timelines.

Biomarker targeting and use of other advanced drug development tools will reduce the risk of clinical failure and will result in the combination of Phase I and II and/or Phase II and III clinical trials – shortening the development timeline. The shift in reimbursement towards only reimbursing those products that show a clinical benefit versus existing products means that not all products will get reimbursed and that products may not be launched in certain markets.
