This case study reviews the strategy and tactics utilized by Amylin and Eli Lilly for the type II diabetes product Byetta/exenatide to educate the market on a new mechanism of action that directly treated the core defect behind type II diabetes. By carefully building messages around scientific innovation and integrating safety, efficacy and benefit into them as well, Byetta was positioned for a successful launch.
