Adelphi Values PROVE Poster: award finalist at ISPOR EU

We are delighted that one of our posters at ISPOR EU has been peer reviewed and nominated as an award finalist. The poster titled ‘Europe-wide spread of carbapenem-resistant bacteria: Epidemiology and disease burden’ provides an overview of antibiotic resistance, a critical global health issue which is becoming increasingly prevalent across Europe and is associated with worse patient outcomes and a greater disease burden.

Scheduled for presentation on Tuesday 13th November (presentation code PHP20), with the author discussion at 12.30-13.30, the poster gives our team an exciting opportunity to share the results of their research findings.

In addition, we will be presenting a further eight scientific posters throughout the ISPOR conference, which cover a range of topics including digital health, Health Technology Assessments, treatment costs and outcomes, the spread of bacteria, biosimilar uptake, the health economics of new technologies, and a real-world review in small cell lung cancer.

Supporting World Earth Day by pledging to help reduce plastic pollution

The team at Adelphi Values | PROVE™ has been getting involved in environmentally-friendly initiatives in honour of World Earth Day which took place on Sunday 22nd April 2018.

Earth Day Network, the organisation behind World Earth Day, has chosen the theme ‘End Plastic Pollution’ for 2018.  Plastic pollution is one of the most important global problems that we face today, impacting the environment, our oceans, animal life, and our health and well-being through the resultant presence of plastic particles in our food.

As part of a global effort to reduce the use of plastics (primarily single-use plastics) and encourage increased recycling, our team implemented a range of initiatives including reducing our use of plastic cups and packaging, avoiding disposable plastic wherever possible, and other environmentally-friendly challenges.

Together we can all make a difference and help to protect our Earth!

 

Christmas 2017 Unicef charitable initiative – we ‘gave on your behalf’

Each Christmas, instead of sending cards in the post, we at Adelphi Group provide our colleagues, partners and associates with the opportunity to nominate a worthy cause for us to donate to on their behalf.

In 2017, we supported Unicef to help make a difference for children all over the world. We received nominations in their droves, and are now delighted to confirm that as a result, we have been able to provide:

  • 5 Water pumps for Schools and Communities
  • 16,000 sachets of rehydration salts to treat sick children
  • Vaccines to help protect 5,000 children against tetanus
  • Sets of warm winter clothing for 40 Syrian children

These donations were part of Adelphi Group’s ongoing charity program which focuses on both local and global health and wellness charities.  We are immensely proud to support these life-saving initiatives.

Revance achieve all endpoints for new treatment in glabellar lines

Adelphi Values applauds Revance Therapeutics in their demonstration of RT002 treatment success in their Pivotal SAKURA Phase 3 Trials for Glabellar Lines.  Please see the announcement for full reporting: http://investors.revance.com/releasedetail.cfm?ReleaseID=1050685

Revance’s RT002 demonstrated positive top-line results in both SAKURA 1 and SAKURA 2 in patient and clinician reported outcomes associated with wrinkle severity as well as superiority in terms of patient rated treatment satisfaction.  In this program, the Adelphi Values PCO team worked with Revance in advancing the primary and secondary outcomes tools in SAKURA 1 and SAKURA 2 as well as building the regulatory documentation and evidence base to support their use as primary and secondary endpoints.  According to Alan Shields, Vice-President of Adelphi Values, “this is a very excellent milestone for Revance and aesthetic medicine as RT002 reflects a novel approach and could offer patients a different and long-acting treatment option they don’t currently have available to them.”  He further indicated, “I’m very proud of the contributions that Ben Banderas, Catherine Foley, and the rest of our Adelphi Values team had in this program. Revance is a wonderful and dedicated group of people with whom to work and we send them our congratulations on achieving this excellent milestone.”

Presenting and exhibiting at ISPOR US

 

Adelphi Values will be presenting and exhibiting at the 22nd Annual International Meeting of ISPOR, the International Society of Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research, which takes place from 20th‑24th May 2017 in Boston, MA, USA.

Team members from Adelphi Values PROVE, Patient-Centered Outcomes and our sister company Adelphi Real World will be on hand at booths 612/614 to discuss the wide range of tailored Real World, Value and Outcomes solutions we offer to overcome the challenges of developing and commercialising healthcare products and services.

In addition, team members from both our UK and US offices will be presenting a workshop and a forum as well as a wide range of posters across a variety of therapy areas and topics including oncology, rare genetic diseases, ophthalmology and endocrinology.

The workshop is entitled ‘Conducting qualitative ‘exit’ interviews following clinical trials or observational studies: a valuable method for understanding the patient experience, informing measurement strategy, and aiding interpretation of patient-reported outcomes’.  This workshop will be co-presented by Rob Arbuckle, Managing Director, Patient-Centered Outcomes UK, on Wednesday 24th May at 8:45am in Sheraton-Back Bay CD – 2nd floor. Through the use of examples from a range of disease areas, this workshop will stimulate discussion regarding the value generated by ‘exit’ interview data and ways to overcome common challenges and limitations.

The forum presentation is entitled ‘How does measurement of multiple medication adherence differ between chronic diseases?’ and will be presented on Monday 22nd May at 6:15pm by the ISPOR Medication Adherence Special Interest Group, with Bryan Bennett, Director, Patient-Centered Outcomes UK, as one of the three speakers.  This interactive forum will look at the most common methods used to calculate adherence to multiple medications (AtMM), an assessment of the studies carried out, and the need to evaluate the differences between diseases in evaluating and deriving multiple adherence as well as determining the implications of using different measurements.  Participants will be encouraged to contribute their experience and will have the opportunity to discuss and suggest potential solutions to the issues.
