The Challenge

A pharmaceutical client marketing a product in oncology received a new indication and wanted to supplement its existing MSL team to
rapidly engage with the key physicians to discuss the new data in a peer-to-peer manner and engage in in-depth clinical discussions. The client had concerns that perceived efficacy and safety issues, if not addressed in an evidence based manner in scientific exchange, could impact
appropriate treatment and product usage. The client did not have the ability to add internal head-count so opted to contract with BESTMSLs.


The client outsourced a team of 4 scientifically credentialed MSLs, to engage with thought leaders in a peer to peer manner to ensure
appropriate understanding of the data supporting the new indication and address any efficacy and safety concerns.


All of the internal benchmarks for success for the contracted team were met. Awareness of the data supporting the new indication and appropriate product utilization for the new indication exceeded expectations. The MSL program was so successful that the client cut the contract short and internalized all of the MSLs after only 6 months..
