RALEIGH, N.C., Nov. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Campbell Alliance, an inVentiv Health company and the leading management consulting firm specializing in the pharmaceutical and biotech industry, today announced the assets chosen for the 2011 Top 10 Most Licensable Oncology Projects to Watch. Selected projects will be discussed in more detail at the upcoming Windhover Therapeutic Area Partnerships conference (http://www.tapartnerships.com) in Boston, November 30 through December 2.
Narrowed from a field of over 1,700 oncology assets using a strict set of judging criteria, the selected projects represent what are considered the most attractive licensable oncology opportunities the industry has to offer. Specifically, the selection team focused on what are considered "hot areas" in oncology: those with transformational, nascent therapies where the potential for differentiation is high. Conjugated antibody, cancer metabolism, and immuno-oncology technologies dominated the list this year.
"Our approach this year was to look at differentiated molecular pathways and technologies," said Jonathon Fendelman, Senior Practice Executive at Campbell Alliance. "While these targeted approaches tend to address smaller patient populations initially, a great deal of potential exists for add-on indications, which makes them attractive licensing opportunities. Further, strong differentiation raises the likelihood of reimbursement post-approval, which is key in an increasingly payer-driven market."
