July’s insights from HCPs mentioning the Top 50 Pharmaceutical Companies
The five pharmaceutical companies that were mentioned the most by HCPs on Twitter during July 2020 were Gilead, Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Johnson and Johnson (J&J), and GSK
Gilead maintained its position as the most mentioned pharmaceutical company for a 5th month due largely to its COVID-19 treatment candidate, remdesivir. Of all mentions of a Top 50 Pharma company by HCPs on Twitter, COVID-19 made up 43% of the conversation. Key drivers within this conversation included price discussions related to remdesivir as well as reactions to general trial results. At the beginning and middle of the month respectively, Pfizer and BioNTech as well as AstraZeneca and Oxford’s COVID-19 vaccine candidates received positive and promising results whilst at the end of the month, Roche’s tocilizumab was found to have no benefit for COVID-19 pneumonia.
I was glad to see @pfizer put up their phase 1 trial data today. Virus neutralizing antibody titers achieved after two doses are greater than convalescent antibody titers. Maybe the first objective good news we've seen out of Operation Warp Speed?https://t.co/uzp4bKkpAm

Very good news from the Oxford vaccine trial. Glad to see both antibody and T cell responses.
How glad? Well sign me up for the vaccine!
I’m hopeful for a vaccine before end of 2020 atleast for vulnerable populations. Kudos to @UniofOxford @AstraZeneca https://t.co/BRVuA9Cg88

In the rest of the conversation, seperate from COVID-19, successful trial results, including for Bayer’s finerenone and Boehringer’s empagliflozin, reaped positive engagement from HCPs. One HCP in the US not only congratulated Bayer for their results but also two of the trialists involved in the study. Another US HCP shared Boehringer’s trial results adding his highlights from the report.
More great news for people with diabetic kidney disease: finerenone successful at preventing main renal and CV outcomes in the #FIDELIO trial. Congratulations to @AgarwalRajivMD and @BakrisGeorge as well as @Bayer ! https://t.co/f0J7pqKZQ4 pic.twitter.com/NPfZrkfHqg
