For the Treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis, Market Share for TNF-alpha Inhibitors Will Decrease Through 2018
Date:5/18/2009

Actemra/RoActemra Will Emerge as the Preferred Biological Drug for TNF-Refractory Patients, According to a New Report from Decision Resources

WALTHAM, Mass., May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms for pharmaceutical and healthcare issues finds that, in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, the market share for TNF-alpha inhibitors will decrease to 63 percent through 2018 as a result of the increasing use of alternative agents to treat the disease. In 2008, TNF-alpha inhibitors such as Amgen/Wyeth/Takeda's Enbrel and Abbott/Eisai's Humira accounted for 80 percent of rheumatoid arthritis drug sales in the United States, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom and Japan.

The new Pharmacor report entitled Rheumatoid Arthritis finds that alternative biologics such as Roche/Chugai's Actemra/RoActemra will take market share away from the TNF-alpha inhibitors as interviewed rheumatologists indicate they switch to one of these agents for patients who respond inadequately to two TNF-alpha inhibitors. Actemra/RoActemra will likely emerge as the preferred agent for TNF-refractory patients and is forecasted to achieve sales of nearly $2 billion in 2018.

The report also finds that Centocor Ortho Biotech/Schering-Plough/Mitsubishi Tanabe/Janssen's Simponi has advantages in its drug delivery and efficacy and is expected to take significant market share away from Centocor Ortho Biotech/Schering-Plough/Mitsubishi Tanabe's Remicade. Simponi will also experience greater uptake than UCB/Otsuka's Cimzia, which has launched for the indication following its recent approval for rheumatoid arthritis by the Food and Drug Administration. Additionally, an emerging agent from Pfizer is expected to impact overall sales of biologics in the market.
