59 - Is Brogan data an acceptable data source to show how long your patients are staying on therapy?

  • Without getting into specific data from individual companies, the PAAB Guidelines for the Review of Market Share Claims (see www.paab.ca) clearly state that market share claims must accurately reflect the findings of the source and the appropriate wording must be used. So, if the source shows "retention" data that is collected from prescription refills, it would be considered. However, the data presentation must not imply any clinical significance or benefits and be reflective of current medical practice (PAAB Code s3.2).
