Last week, Pieter Droppert wrote on Biotech Strategy Blog about what the impact of the European approval for abiraterone acetate (Zytiga®) may be on cabazitaxel (Jevtana®) sales.
Both are indicated in the post-docetaxel setting. Will physicians prescribe a convenient pill (abiraterone) as opposed to using another line of chemo (cabazitaxel)? You can read Pieter’s thoughts on Biotech Strategy Blog.
Meanwhile on Pharma Strategy Blog, Sally Church wrote an update on pharma social media. She reviewed the Zytiga healthcare professionals website and the many features that she liked.
In another post last week, Sally discussed some of the issues surrounding the drop in share price for Dendreon and possible reasons for poor sipuleucel-T (Provenge®) sales. She also discussed new research that shows the TMPRSS2:ERG gene may be a more useful marker than PSA in prostate cancer. You can read more on Pharma Strategy Blog.

Sally Church on Pharma Strategy Blog will be providing live coverage of the annual European Association of Urology (EAU) Congress that starts in Vienna this weekend.
If you can’t join Sally at the meeting for a slice of schwarzwälder kirschtorte, then you can experience the meeting virtually as Sally aggregates all the live tweets, and contributes her own.
There are a lot of new products in the prostate cancer market. With new treatment options such as Dendreon’s sipuleucel-T, sanofi-aventis’ cabizatexel and JNJ’s abiraterone expected in the not too distant future, the meeting is bound to be interesting. We can also expect the latest news about new product development in bladder and renal cancer.
The Cover it Live widget on Sally’s blog will be aggregating all the tweets that use the conference hashtag #EAU11, so if you are unable to be in Vienna, you can follow what’s happening by clicking here.
