The 5 Key Questions Addressed by this Report:
  • How many physicians were reached by Firazyr through reportable promotional activity in 2018 and how does this compare to its peer set in the Hereditary Angioedema market?
  • What promotional mix was leveraged (e.g., sales rep detailing, physician education, and paid speaking) and what was the median spend for each type of activity?
  • How does Shire's depth of coverage vary within key specialties (e.g., Allergy/Immunology, Internal Medicine, Pediatric Medicine, and Family Medicine) and how does this compare to its peers and the overall set of rep-accessible physicians?
  • How often are physicians receiving paid meals for Firazyr throughout the year (e.g., monthly, quarterly, annually)?
  • Who were the most frequent meal recipients and top paid speakers for Firazyr in 2018?
Data Sources and Methodology:
  • Author leverages company-reported financial transaction data disclosed through CMS Open Payments. This data set captures all transfers of value (e.g., speaking fees, consulting fees, travel, education, and meals) made on behalf of a drug or device manufacturer to a physician. Currently, over 5 years of longitudinal data is available - covering payments to more than 1,000,000 U.S. healthcare professionals.
  • Over 1,000 paid interactions across 700 physicians made on behalf of Firazyr were carefully examined to support our analysis. In addition, interaction data from 4 peer products (i.e. Cinryze, Haegarda, Ruconest, and Takhzyro) was leveraged to provide benchmarking and market insights.
