  • Who were the most frequent meal recipients and top paid speakers for Kymriah in 2021?

Data Sources and Methodology:

  • MDDetails leverages company-reported financial transaction data disclosed through CMS Open Payments. This data set captures all transfers of value (e.g., speaking fees, consulting fees, travel, education, and meals) made on behalf of a drug or device manufacturer to a physician. Currently, over 5 years of longitudinal data is available – covering payments to more than 1,000,000 U.S. healthcare professionals.
  • Over 150 paid interactions across 120 physicians made on behalf of Kymriah were carefully examined to support our analysis. In addition, interaction data from 26 peer products (e.g. Adcetris, Aliqopa, Asparlas, Beleodaq, Besponsa, Blincyto, Brukinsa, Calquence, Folotyn, Gazyva, Iclusig, Imbruvica, Marqibo, Monjuvi, Oncaspar, Polivy, Ruxience, Rylaze, Tazverik, Tecartus, Truxima, Ukoniq, Venclexta, Xpovio, Yescarta, and Zynlonta ) was leveraged to provide benchmarking and market insights.
