The development and commercialization of immune-modulating biologics present unique challenges for global launches. This is especially true in emerging markets where experience with these agents may be limited.

An apparent hesitancy to move into emerging markets on the part of the project team can be perceived locally as mistrust. This sense of mistrust is compounded by cultural differences. This talk will outline the challenges faced by project teams in launching these unique molecules into new markets and will give practical advice on how to anticipate these potential rifts and guide teams to overcome the obstacles encountered.
