The latest insights from HCPs mentioning the Top 50 Pharmaceutical Companies

The five pharmaceutical companies that were mentioned the most by healthcare professionals (HCPs) on Twitter during March 2022 were Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, AstraZeneca, GSK and Novartis.

 

CREATION.co identified a 20% increase in mentions of pharmaceutical companies this month compared to last month, rising to 18,993 posts from 15,207. This month, although COVID-19 mentions dropped by 5,473, conversations still largely revolved around vaccine efficacy, with HCPs sharing various pieces of information around vaccine data. In addition, HCPs highlighted new recommendations from the CDC in regard to Johnson & Johnson vaccine recipients.

The top shared links by HCPs discussed efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines and the authorisation of two COVID-19 vaccines for immunocompromised individuals:

  1. A research article by the Science Translational Medicine Journal about a study showing how Moderna’s vaccine elicits a different antibody-response & natural killer T cell response.
  2. A study from BioRxiv showing head-to-head comparisons of T cell, B cell, and antibody responses to diverse vaccines.
  3. An article by the FDA about the authorisation of second booster doses of two COVID-19 vaccines for older and immunocompromised individuals.

A graph showing HCP discussions on online

COVID-19 made up only 36% of the conversations from HCPs about Top 50 Pharmaceutical companies – the second month in a row since September 2020 that the percentage has been below 50%. This was mostly driven by the discussions about vaccine efficacy and adverse events data.

Novartis climbed into the top five in March 2022, with conversations about their newly FDA approved radioligand therapy for treatment of progressive PSMA prostate cancer.

CREATION.co continues to analyse online HCP conversation on a variety of topics including virtual congress, healthcare changes since the pandemic, product development and therapy area specific insights.
