NEW YORK, Oct. 13, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kantar Health, a leading global healthcare consulting and market research firm, today announced the launch of CancerLandscape™, offering fast navigation of large datasets to better understand oncology drug opportunities and the competitive landscape. This new solution can assist users in evaluating business development and licensing opportunities, identifying novel targets for drug development, comparing company pipelines, and understanding the competitive landscapes in multiple tumor types.
"For the first time, we've aggregated multiple data sources to achieve unprecedented insight that will help identify the tumors that may be of greatest interest for investment or resource deployment," said Cory Lewis, Ph.D., Manager, Oncology Commercial Development, Kantar Health. "In the past, complex data searches such as these were very time-intensive due to manual execution. However, the CancerLandscape platform is easy to navigate, visually impactful and interactive, and it's the one place where clients can quickly view the entire cancer landscape within one data source."
CancerLandscape, an innovative, web-based solution that lets users review more than 2,000 cancer drugs covering more than 175 tumor types, tracks every oncology medicine in development by company, mechanism of action, tumor type, geography and stage of clinical development.
"CancerLandscape combines the breadth of Big Data with the depth of our large team of Ph.D.-level oncology experts who have the clinical and commercial expertise to provide actionable insights," Lewis said. "Our oncology expertise that people have come to trust has been put into the development of CancerLandscape to provide our clients with the information they need to make the best decisions in one place where they can view the entire cancer landscape."
