Digital Landscape: Multiple Sclerosis

"Digital Landscape: Multiple Sclerosis", report analyzes digital activities undertaken by Pharma industry in support of disease-modifying therapies for Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

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).

Key Highlights
- US Patients: Overall, digital pharma support is strong for MS patients in the US; good quality branded and unbranded resources detected, particularly from Biogen, Teva and Sanofi Genzyme. Patients are well supported by social media, with branded Facebook pages from Teva, Novartis and EMD Serono the most successful. Less mobile app activity seen, with top offerings from branded treatment trackers, with Bayer’s new app achieving early success.
- US HCPs: There is little support for HCPs in the MS space beyond branded, with Genzyme, Biogen, and Teva offering the best branded resources. The pharma-sponsored unbranded and mobile app landscapes are sparse, and opportunities may exist to develop or sponsor content with trusted non-pharma organizations. HCP-directed social media activity restricted to posts from corporate accounts, with examples of HCP-specific accounts seen in other diseases.
- EUCAN Patients: MS patients in EUCAN are well supported by pharma overall, particularly those in Germany. Support is weakest in the UK and Canada. Best branded support seen from Sanofi Genzyme, Teva and Merck KGaA, with most brand activity related to patient support programs. Pharma provides strong unbranded support but no multi-country, local-language campaigns, with the majority of sites are supported by social media. Pharma-sponsored mobile app landscape is strong, particularly from Novartis, with common features including disease tracking and reminders.
- EUCAN HCPs: Limited HCP support provided by pharma in MS beyond brand sites. Merck KGaA and Sanofi Genzyme offer the best branded support, with a number of sites detected across EUCAN. 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: Biogen, Sanofi Genzyme, Teva, Merck KGaA / EMD Serono, Roche / Genentech, Novartis, Bayer, Mylan, Sandoz, Almirall, Celgene
