    in Business

    Myrbetriq®'s Advertising Partnership with RunPee App

    Pharmaguy interviews Walt Johnston, Vice President of US Marketing and New Product Planning, and Emily Sitrin Mason, Consumer Marketing Director - Urology Franchise, at Astellas (see Bios). We discuss a new partnership with Astellas Pharma US and the RunPee mobile app as part of the company's marketing campaign for Myrbetriq® (mirabegron) featuring an animated bladder character. 

    The RunPee app is a movie-viewing app that tells you the best time to "run and pee" without missing the best scenes. While the ultimate goal is to encourage individuals to speak with a health care professional about overactive bladder (OAB), Astellas is encouraging those who experience symptoms of OAB to enjoy the movies this summer and download the app to determine the best time to use the restroom during movies if needed. 

    Questions/Topics of Discussion

    Give us a little background about this partnership. Why did Astellas decide to partner with RunPee?
    Describe how the app works
    Are branded Myrbetriq® ads served up within the app? Describe how that is done.
    What is the target audience for Myrbetriq® and how does the app help you reach this audience?
    What are are the KPIs for this campaign? Has it been successful so far? What data can you share with us?
    What have you learned from this partnership?

    Active Surveillance in Prostate Cancer with Dr. Laurence Klotz

    in Health

    We were honored to feature Dr. Laurence Klotz, an acknowledged authority on active surveillance for the management of low-risk prostate cancer. Dr. Klotz is Professor in the Department of Surgery, University of Toronto Division of Urology, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, Toronto, ON, Canada. 

    Dr. Klotz and panelists discussed evidence supporting value of active surveillance as a management strategy for men who are diagnosed with low- or very low-risk forms of prostate cancer. Dr. Klotz spoke particularly about factors that are key to the high-quality implementation of active surveillance, including accumulating evidence that true Gleason 6 disease is not associated with any significant risk for metastasis, importance of early identification of patients who do, in fact, have real risk for disease progression over time, are therefore not good candidates for active surveillance, and managing these patients, evolving strategies to minimize need for overly frequent (i.e., annual) biopsies, including potential role of multiparametric MRIs and new biomarkers, as also whether active surveillance is appropriate for a subset of men with Gleason 3 + 4 = 7 disease who have a very small volume Gleason pattern 4 disease.

    On the panel were Mike Scott, Thomas N. Krik, Tony Crispino and Walter Green Jr.
