Research & Development

Deallus’ strategic support extends into the early stages of product identification and development where we help our clients optimise R&D structure in order to enhance candidate output and also to make the right decisions for early stage product development including target product profile, study design and patient capture, where a multitude of external factors, such as the competitive set, market access and patient dynamics have to be considered.

New Product Planning

Issue:

  • The client NPP team and newly formed Brand Team requested us to identify and pressure test various strategic options to support their phase II/III asset in light of potentially highly impactful competitor activity.

Solution:

  • Deallus performed a wide and deep analysis of the evolving competitive landscape to characterize competitors’ regulatory, commercial and clinical strategies. The process filled several data gaps and identified a few remaining variables in the market place. Deallus also designed and ran a bespoke simulation exercise with all the key functional leaders of the brand enabling the client to articulate both dominant strategies, and to detail specific tactics for each case.

R&D Optimization

Issue:

  • Our client, a top-10 biotechnology company, requested an evaluation of discovery platform and logistics technologies spanning the value chain of biomarker development in order to launch a programme in personalized medicine.

Solution:

  • Deallus conducted in-depth research into the technology, human-capital and operation of relevant companies which enabled an end-to-end analysis of the value chain in personalized medicine. On the basis of our work, the client formed a dedicated taskforce which, with the analysis and recommendations provided by Deallus, informed the company’s “go or no-go” decisions in biomarker and personalized medicine development.
