Psoriasis – Access & Reimbursement – Detailed, Expanded Analysis – Top 5 European Markets (EU)


The treatment landscape for psoriasis in the top 5 European markets (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK) is extremely dynamic. Humira (AbbVie), Enbrel (Amgen), Stelara (Janssen), and Otezla (Celgene) now face stiff competition from IL-17 inhibitors Cosentyx (Novartis), Taltz (Eli Lilly), and Kyntheum (Leo Pharma), as well as from the highly efficacious first-in-class IL-23 inhibitor Tremfya (Janssen). Competition is set to be intensified by additional IL-17 and IL-23 inhibitors waiting in the wings alongside the first TYK2 inhibitor, and, crucially, overall brand dominance is threatened by increasing biosimilar uptake. This research analyzes the complex reimbursement and market access environment for psoriasis treatment as key therapies jostle for prime positioning, and payers and prescribers strive to balance clinical superiority with cost effectiveness.


  • How do reimbursement terms for targeted psoriasis agents vary across the top European markets? How do payers regulate use of these premium-priced drugs?
  • How do prescribing patterns differ between and within the countries under study? What factors most influence uptake? How impactful is payer policy?
  • How has the increasing availability of biosimilars altered payer preferences and mandates? What is the actual impact of biosimilar availability on prescribing?
  • What key access and uptake challenges do emerging agents face in an increasingly crowded market? What lessons have been learnt? How can optimal product positioning be achieved?
