Deciding Patient Factors for HCPs in the Multiple Sclerosis Marketplace

By: Vivisum Partners, LLC
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. - Jan. 23, 2023 - PRLog -- Prescribing patterns come from a variety of factors for HCPs, but some are more important than others in the multiple sclerosis marketplace. According to newly published data by market research firm Vivisum Partners, LLC., while there may be treatments that have many points of overlap, certain distinguishing factors of brands in the MS marketplace bring to light aspects that assist HCPs in making prescribing decisions. Factors like number of failed disease modifying therapies (DMTs) and Age are "weeding out" competition in the multiple sclerosis marketplace.

For example, according to Multiple Sclerosis Competitive Landscape, neurologists view Mavenclad's patients as distinct from a treatment in the marketplace like Mayzent, whose more ideal patient has more severe symptoms and have failed 1 previous DMT. A more veteran treatment, such as Kesimpta, has a similar profile to Mayzent-apart from Age, which will be an important factor for marketing to HCPs to assist in narrowing down options available in the multiple sclerosis marketplace.

However, it is Ocrevus, not Mayzent that is seen as a main competitor in the multiple sclerosis marketplace. HCPs view Mayzent as a "Robin Hood,", -reflecting emotions of helpful creativity and non-conformity; "Mayzent is most competitive for patients who have moderate to severe disease, failed 1 DMT, and are younger" said Vivisum's multiple sclerosis strategist Ellen Hart.

Mavenclad differs from Mayzent patients in their disease severity and is viewed as "Nelson Mandela,", reflecting strong and inspirational leadership; Mavenclad's more ideal patient having Mild to Moderate symptoms as opposed to Mayzent's moderate to severe patients.
