MARKET OUTLOOK

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients refractory to one or more TNF-α inhibitors are generally prescribed a non-TNF-targeted therapy (e.g., Bristol-Myers Squibb’s Orencia, Roche’s Actemra / RoActemra, Roche’s Rituxan / MabThera). The recent launch of Pfizer’s Xeljanz in Europe and Eli Lilly / Incyte’s Olumiant in both the United States and Europe provides physicians additional treatment options with a convenient oral route of administration. The launch of an additional IL-6 inhibitor, Regeneron / Sanofi’s Kevzara, has further expanded the treatment armamentarium. Although the RA market offers multiple efficacious and relatively safe agents, patients refractory to TNF-α inhibitors have limited options, even with the recent entry of these newer agents; therefore, unmet need still exists for the TNFi-refractory RA subpopulation.

QUESTIONS ANSWERED

  • What are the treatment drivers and goals for TNFi-refractory RA?
  • What drug attributes are key influencers, which have limited impact, and which are hidden opportunities?
  • How do current therapies perform on key treatment drivers and goals for TNFi-refractory RA?
  • What are the prevailing areas of unmet need and opportunity in TNFi-refractory RA?
  • What trade-offs across different clinical attributes and price are acceptable to U.S. and European rheumatologists for a hypothetical new drug targeting TNFi-refractory RA?
