Case Study: Vertex Pharmaceuticals

The launch of INCIVEK® (telaprevir), Vertex Pharmaceuticals' first commercialized brand for Hepatitis C, has surpassed all expectations and is on course to become one of the most successful launches in pharma history. Pre-launch, Ignite Health focused on disease awareness, patient support/relationship management, customer engagement analysis and development of social media.  In on-going brand-building, Ignite Health conceived and executed campaign development for unbranded disease education, product promotion and corporate promotion. Despite having similar efficacy/safety data and despite being significantly outspent, INCIVEK® has captured more than 85% of the scripts when compared to Merck's VictrelisTM.
