Campaign overview - Humira - a whole in one for Abbott

Company: Abbott

Humira (adalimumab), a recombinant human monoclonal antibody, has indications in three therapeutic areas, rheumatology, dermatology and gastroenterology. For this reason it has been called “a pipeline in a product” with new indications added as new data becomes available.

The brand teams for each franchise researched the impact of the varying conditions for themselves in a whole range of innovative ways and developed an integrated campaign built on a USP that spanned all indications and encompassed values resonant with all external stakeholders. The results were both impressive and engaging.


Judges' comments

"'Living the patient experience' was innovative, impressive, well implemented and allowed the teams to build on excellent insights."

"An excellent 'experiential' campaign, very comprehensive positioning strategy and brand building activity."

Judges' comments

"This was a great campaign, fresh and innovative, with a 'positive' approach built on a key customer insight – the lack of comfort within the healthcare profession of positive messaging led them to take the bold step of building a customer value proposition around it. We saw good implementation and results that exceeded expectations as they successfully shifted attitudes amongst HCPs."
