New Report Defines Challenges for New Entrants in Key Rheumatology Markets
Date:4/7/2009

MedPredict's Rheumatology Thought Leader Panel Creates a 'Fantasy Formulary' For 2015

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- MedPredict Market Research, a global provider of pharmaceutical competitive intelligence and market research, has published a new report providing critical strategic insight for companies with a stake in the market for rheumatology therapies, including rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, gout and psoriatic arthritis.

To develop this analysis, entitled "Thought Leader Insight & Analysis: Rheumatology," MedPredict conducted a thought exercise with four North American and four European rheumatologists. The purpose was to identify their "must have" branded and generic drugs for their real-world practices in the year 2015. This report outlines each panelist's "Fantasy Formulary," and the strengths, weaknesses and product news for each pharmacotherapy that is mentioned.

"It is essential that drug developers consider the entire rheumatology practice when establishing their strategies going forward," according to Dr. Jeffrey Berk, MedPredict's president and one of the report's authors. "One key insight from our research is that drugs which will be beneficial across multiple indications are going to have an easier time getting on formulary."

The report will answer the following questions:

  • What are these thought leaders' top ten choices for their rheumatology practice in 2015?
  • How do their choices differ by geography, and why?
  • How will the availability of biosimilars for substitution of first generation biologics impact the environment for new entrants?
  • What is the preferred anti-TNF drug, and why?
  • Where will new mechanistic approaches, such as Jak and Syk inhibitors, IL-17, anti-B-cell, and others fit in the rheumatologist's armamentarium?

Companies/Partnerships mentioned in this report include: Abbott, Alder, Amgen, Amgen/Wyeth, Biogen Idec, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Can-Fite, Centocor, Centocor/Schering-Plough, Chelsea, GlaxoSmithKline/Genmab, Human Genome Sciences, Incyte, J&J/Alza, Lilly, Medarex, Merck, Merck Serono/ZymoGenetics, Mitsubishi Tanabe, Neovacs, Nitec/SkyePharma, Novartis, Pozen/AstraZeneca, Rigel, Roche, Roche/Chugai, Roche/Genentech/Biogen Idec, Sanofi-Aventis, Savient, Takeda, UCB, Vertex, and Wyeth/Trubion.
