STUDY OVERVIEW

The first and only medicines approved by the FDA in May 2019 to treat cardiomyopathy of wild-type and hereditary transthyretin amyloid cardiomyopathy (ATTR-CM), VYNDAQEL (tafamidis meglumine) and VYNDAMAX (tafamidis) each received Orphan Drug designation.

While the therapies are some of the most expensive in medicine, Pfizer's new heart drugs shattered analysts’ sales forecasts to quickly carve out a spot in a therapeutic market that features rival therapies from Alnylam Pharmaceuticals and Ionis Pharmaceuticals.

This Best Practices, LLC analysis probes the field resources deployed at launch to help fuel a new cardiovascular blockbuster. The study examines the field sales and medical staff FTEs (full time equivalents) that Pfizer invested during the first year of the launch of Vyndamax and Vydaqel in the United States to cover medical and field sales operations for its new cardiology drugs.
