MattsonJack Launches CancerNFluence®

Peer-Nominated Physicians Influencing the Treatment of Cancer

ST. LOUIS, MO--(Marketwire - September 9, 2008) - The Mattson Jack Group, Inc. (MattsonJack), a recognized leader in business analytics for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries, extends its leadership in oncology and physician influence identification with the introduction of CancerNFluence®, the most comprehensive database of peer-nominated physicians who influence treatment decisions in cancer.

Drawing on MattsonJack's 10 years' experience in physician influence identification and mapping, CancerNFluence® profiles physicians in the U.S. and Western Europe in the high-profile cancer markets of breast, non-small cell lung, head and neck, colorectal, and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Its user-friendly web interface provides automated reporting capabilities and 24/7 accessibility to information that will help users with a variety of efforts, including:

--  Speaker or Ad Board recruitment
--  Medical Science Liaison group alignment
--  Clinical investigator recruitment
--  New product planning
--  Marketing research recruitment
--  Sales force targeting

CancerNFluence® goes beyond traditional KOL identification by giving users the comprehensive scope of a physician's influence, identifying the top physicians in oncology at the national / international and regional / local geographic levels. The scope of a physician's influence is further defined within and across multiple tumor types.

"Physicians' therapeutic decisions rely heavily on the opinions of peers they respect and follow," said Gary Bartolacci, Senior Director at MattsonJack. "CancerNFluence® not only identifies these nationally and internationally influential physicians but also the physicians who wield significant influence at the local and regional levels, where the larger volume of cancer patients are treated."
