Rheumatoid Arthritis Therapeutics in Philippines

lower impact of their disease on work as well as family and social activities," she further elaborates.

The future of RA drugs in the Philippines is dependent on the availability of affordable and effective drugs to the patients. There is a steady demand for DMARDs and NSAIDs and their prescriptions are foreseen to increase, due to increased awareness and patient education, local production and distribution by companies.

Methotrexate (MTX), a DMARD (disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs) has been traditionally used to treat RA. It is also the most used form of treatment in rheumatoid arthritis, especially with generic forms available. Currently, combination therapies between DMARDs and NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) are commonly practiced.

DMARDs capture the majority of the RA therapeutics market owing to the availability of reimbursement for treatment with these drugs and their easy availability over the counter. DMARDs are expected to retain majority share in the forecast period as well.

According to Rajan, "Biologics are used in combination with DMARDs for moderate to severe RA patients. Some biologic drugs are currently reimbursed, if treated in government hospitals. Physicians opine that with more drugs brought into the hospital formularies, the usage of biologics would increase for treatment earlier in the disease."

Even though biologics are highly effective and recommended for treatment, they are likely to be the third line of treatment, due to their high cost. Physicians are willing to use biologics if they are listed in the hospital formulary and if they are affordable to their patients (current price range is seen to be out of reach of most patients). Physicians are of the opinion that more studies are required to make them feel confident in using biologics, but the cost of treatment is likely to restrain the high use of the drug class.
