The psoriasis therapy market is becoming increasingly lucrative owing to the growing number of approved biologics. Although TNF-alpha inhibitors continue to dominate the market, their premier position is being challenged by the IL-17 inhibitors secukinumab (Novartis’s Cosentyx), ixekizumab (Eli Lilly’s Taltz), and brodalumab (Bausch Health’s Siliq, Leo Pharma’s Kyntheum, Kyowa Hakko Kirin’s Lumicef) and by the IL-12/23 inhibitor ustekinumab (Janssen’s Stelara). With the approvals of the IL-23 inhibitors guselkumab (Janssen’s Tremfya), tildrakizumab (Merck & Co. / Almirall / Sun Pharma’s Ilumya / Ilumetri), and, more recently, risankizumab (AbbVie / Boehringer Ingleheim’s Skyrizi), another effective drug class has been introduced to this increasingly competitive market. The landscape for the established biologics will change even further with the increasing availability and use of biosimilars.

Questions answered:

  • How do interviewed KOLs view the efficacy and safety of the IL-17 inhibitors Cosentyx, Taltz, and Siliq / Kyntheum / Lumicef and the emerging IL-17 A/F dual inhibitor UCB’s bimekizumab, and where are / will these agents be positioned in the psoriasis treatment algorithm?
  • What will be the impact of the IL-23 inhibitors Tremfya, Ilumya, Skyrizi, and mirikizumab (emerging from Eli Lilly), and how will they fare in the competitive psoriasis market?
  • How is the oral agent apremilast (Amgen’s Otezla) used for psoriasis, and how will it be compared with the emerging oral TYK2 inhibitor BMS-986165?
  • How fast will the uptake of biosimilars occur in psoriasis, and which brands will suffer the most erosion in patient share and sales?
