The axial spondyloarthritis (AxSpA) market boasts biologics representing two distinct drug classes, the blockbuster tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) inhibitors (Amgen’s Enbrel, AbbVie’s Humira, Janssen’s Remicade and Simponi / Simponi Aria, and UCB’s Cimzia) and two IL-17 inhibitors (Novartis’s Cosentyx and Eli Lilly’s Taltz). The TNF-α inhibitors are the most widely prescribed biologics in AxSpA patients refractory to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). However, these agents face a competitive threat, both from the launch of cost-effective biosimilars and the growing IL-17 class, which has efficacy data that have met more-stringent clinical trial endpoints. Cimzia was approved by the FDA in 2019 for nonradiographic (nr)-AxSpA, marking the first FDA approval for that subpopulation, followed by Cosentyx and Taltz in June 2020. The impending entry of additional IL-17 inhibitors (UCB’s bimekizumab and Kyowa Hakko Kirin’s Lumicef) and the first oral targeted therapies—Jak inhibitors—for this indication (Pfizer’s Xeljanz and AbbVie's Rinvoq) will also shift market dynamics.

Questions answered:

  • How large is the treatable AxSpA population, and how will diagnosis / drug-treatment rates change over time?
  • What are interviewed experts’ insights on current treatment options for ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and nr-AxSpA? What clinical needs remain unfulfilled?
  • What pipeline products are the most promising, and what sales / uptake could they secure in AxSpA? What therapies of note are progressing in earlier phases?
  • What are the drivers and constraints in the AxSpA market, and how will the market evolve over the forecast period?
