A Drug With Efficacy Superior to That of Remicade at Inducing Closure and Healing of Fistulas Would Earn a 30 Percent Patient Share in the Crohn's Disease Drug Market
Date:6/11/2008

Ustekinumab Will Earn a 5.4 Percent Patient Share by 2012, According to a

New Report from Decision Resources

WALTHAM, Mass., June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms focusing on pharmaceutical and healthcare issues, finds that a therapy that induces closure and healing of fistulas in a greater percentage of patients than Centocor/Schering-Plough/Mitsubishi Tanabe's Remicade (infliximab) does, would earn a 30 percent patient share in the treatment of Crohn's disease, according to surveyed gastroenterologists.

The new report entitled Crohn's Disease: Physicians Seek Drugs That Treat Fistulizing Disease More Effectively than Infliximab finds that surveyed gastroenterologists indicated that they would prescribe Centocor/Janssen-Cilag's ustekinumab to 30 percent of their patients with Crohn's disease. As a result, ustekinumab is forecasted to earn a 5.4 percent patient share of the U.S. Crohn's disease market in 2012.

The report also finds that UCB's Cimzia will earn Decision Resources' proprietary clinical gold standard ("clinical gold standard") status for the treatment of Crohn's disease by 2011 as interviewed gastroenterologists indicate that Cimzia's efficacy and delivery profiles are superior to those of the current clinical gold standard, Abbott/Eisai's Humira. Although surveyed gastroenterologists indicated that Cimzia has advantages in efficacy and delivery, the therapy may be associated with more minor side effects when compared to Humira.

"Interviewed gastroenterologists report that Cimzia's pegylated formulation may prolong the drug's effect, resulting in a slightly more effective maintenance therapy with a superior maintenance dosing schedule in comparison to Humira," said Kathryn Benton, analyst at Decision Resources. "As a result, we forecast Cimzia to replace Humira as the clinical gold standard because of its incremental advantage in delivery and maintenance of clinical remission."
