New Strategic Drugs Database Launches

Current Drugs (, part of The Thomson Corp., announced the launch of the Strategic Drugs database (SDdb). The new database merges scientific and clinical information with marketplace and financial information by leveraging additional Thomson information sources, including Thomson Financial and Micromedex.

According to the company, SDdb allows business and marketing executives to analyze current and predicted sales of the leading prescription drugs using a suite of graphical analysis tools. In addition, these high-level financial analyses are combined with the ability to drill-down to the underlying fundamental scientific data that defines the sales prospects of drugs on the market today and in the research and development pipeline. At a time when the pharmaceutical companies are under pressure to bring innovative new products to market with increased efficiency, SDdb can help business and professional customers make better decisions and make them faster.

A premium-service version of the SDdb is also available that provides to customers a daily monitoring service, covering major scientific journals, news, and business sources. Information captured by SDdb editors is then assessed against a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) analysis of the drug and its nearest competitors. Customers are then alerted to any new information likely to impact this analysis.
