The ulcerative colitis (UC) market landscape is constantly evolving. The TNF-α inhibitors have the longest tenure among all biologics for UC; however, the launch of Takeda’s Entyvio, a cell adhesion molecule (CAM) inhibitor, intensifies competition. The additional entries and expanded use of less-expensive biosimilar TNF-α inhibitors will also continue to shift market dynamics, as will the anticipated entry of the first-in-UC oral therapy (i.e., Pfizer’s Xeljanz), together with the launch of additional emerging agents with novel MOAs. All these factors will contribute to an increasingly complex market access landscape. EU5 payers and prescribers will need to carefully weigh the clinical efficacy, safety, and cost-effectiveness of each agent. As such, developers of emerging therapies looking to penetrate this market need to be wellprepared to navigate a more-complex road to access and reimbursement.
Access & Reimbursement provides in-depth insight regarding the impact of payer policy on physician prescribing behavior so you can build your market access strategy and optimize your brand positioning.
