Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is an orphan disease affecting approximately 50,000 people in the United States. It is characterized by an irreversible loss of lung function, leading to high morbidity and mortality; most patients die within three to five years following diagnosis. Pirfenidone (Roche’s Esbriet) and nintedanib (Boehringer Ingelheim’s Ofev) are the only two drugs approved for treatment of adults with mild to moderate IPF. Other than these two disease-modifying therapies (DMTs), physicians also prescribe off-label medications (e.g., corticosteroids, anticoagulants) to treat IPF patients when the risk/benefit profile does not warrant treatment with pirfenidone or nintedanib, or when patients do not receive reimbursement or cannot afford the coinsurance for these two DMTs. Our Treatment Algorithms study provides national patient-level claims data to explore the use of key therapies in both newly diagnosed and recently treated patients, providing insight into the current treatment landscape for IPF.
Treatment Algorithms: Claims Data Analysis provides detailed analysis of brand usage across different lines of therapy using real-world data patient-level claims data so you can accurately assess your source of business and quantify areas of opportunity for increasing your brand share.
