CREATION.co identified 12,293 HCP mentions of pharmaceutical companies online in September 2022, a slight increase from the previous month. GSK climbed back into the top 5 due to the prequalification of their Mosquirix Malaria vaccine by the World Health Organisation . Novo Nordisk was one of the bigger movers, climbing from 14th to 6th with discussions about the use of their semaglutide drug in weight loss patients.

Pfizer and Moderna remained at the top of the most mentioned pharmaceutical companies  in part due to the most shared post from Dr Eric Feigl-Ding.  Dr Feigl-Ding clarified that data regarding the safety and efficacy of the Pfizer booster and Moderna bivalent shot meant the vaccines were “safe & works”, while Eric Topol’s highly engaged post shared trial results for the bivalent vaccines.

 

 


The top shared links by HCPs discussed:

  1. An Article from Statnews about COVID-19 vaccine research.
  2. An Article from Reuters about positive results yielded from an Alzheimer’s study carried out by Eisai and Biogen.
  3. A Journal from Science Direct about randomised mRna COVID-19 vaccination trials in adults.

One of the key drivers of conversation in September 2022 came from HCP discussions about the side effects of the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccine published in a recent study, with surgeon Joseph Ladapo expressing negative sentiment towards the lack of patient-level trial data.

Additionally, HCPs shared trial results from the FIGARO study that trialled the use of finerenone in type 2 diabetes and chronic kidney disease, celebrating the results of the trial.
