Centocor/Janssen-Cilag's Ustekinumab Will Become the Gold Standard for Psoriasis By 2011

Competitive Advantages in Efficacy Will Drive Prescription Rates, According

to a New Report from Decision Resources

WALTHAM, Mass., Feb. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms focusing on pharmaceutical and healthcare issues, finds that, following its approval in early 2009, Centocor/Janssen-Cilag's ustekinumab will become the clinical gold standard for psoriasis by 2011. Ustekinumab will achieve gold standard status because of its competitive advantages in long-term efficacy over Centocor/Schering- Plough/Mitsubishi Tanabe's Remicade and due to its superior effect on plaque clearance when compared to Amgen/Wyeth/Takeda's Enbrel.

According to the new report entitled Psoriasis: Ustekinumab to Emerge as New Clinical Gold Standard by 2011, ustekinumab has competitive advantages in efficacy, the area of the highest importance to surveyed physicians, and a superior safety and delivery profile when compared to Remicade. Surveyed dermatologists report that a drug's effect on plaque clearance is the attribute that most influences their prescribing decisions in psoriasis and clinical data shows that ustekinumab has advantages over sales-leading Enbrel on this attribute.

"Clinical data and thought leader opinion indicate that ustekinumab and Abbott/Eisai's Humira outperform Enbrel on efficacy and delivery measures," said Irene Koulinska, analyst at Decision Resources. "But the major improvement in efficacy offered by ustekinumab will earn it future gold- standard status."
