NEW YORK, Nov. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Gain exclusive insights on the perceived value and benefits of personalised medicine and on the key challenges and opportunities in relation to implementation from treating oncologists.

Personalised Medicines in Oncology: Assessing Key Drivers and Challenges at the Physician Level (US) is based on survey results from 50 US oncologists (33 medical oncologists and 17 haematologist-oncologists) and offers insights on what oncologists believe are the critical issues, challenges and opportunities within the personalised medicines space, and how oncologists intend to adopt personalised medicine in the future.

Quantitative Analysis

A great deal of anticipation and expectation surrounds personalised medicine. While there have been some notable successes, the promise of personalised medicine – right medicine, right patient, right time – has failed to materialise in many disease areas where a personalised approach could drive better patient outcomes. Concerns amongst key stakeholder groups remain, particularly in relation to development, access and implementation of personalised healthcare strategies.

This survey provides US physician insights into personalised medicine within the oncology setting. By understanding what oncologists in the US think about the key challenges, opportunities and concerns, companies operating in the oncology market and seeking to leverage personalised medicine for their products can gain a deep understanding of what's needed to drive long-term commercial success.
