Trinity Partners Unveils Findings of Its Inaugural Drug Index

Trinity Partners announced today the findings of its first annual ‘Trinity Drug Index,’ a comprehensive research-based report which assessed 22 novel drugs approved by the FDA in 2013. The Index rates drug performance as measured by a retrospective look at commercial success relative to therapeutic value and R&D complexity, assigning each drug a score in those three areas as well as an overall composite score.

Top findings of this year’s Trinity Drug Index include:

  • Sovaldi, which treats Hepatitis C, received the highest ranking with an overall score of 4.4 out of 5
  • Most of the top performers were specialty drugs
  • Drugs for primary care markets such as COPD and diabetes tend to show weaker differentiation and limited commercial performance, exacerbated by significant R&D expense
  • Commercial underperformance given significant therapeutic value is rare, and could be due to a rapidly changing competitive environment
  • Well-executed business strategy may boost commercial performance of drugs that are not vastly superior therapeutically
  • Moving forward, it will be more critical than ever to demonstrate a product’s value vis-à-vis existing competition
