Schizophrenia is a psychiatric disease that usually requires long-term treatment. The primary goals of treatment are to reduce the frequency and severity of psychotic episodes, maintain the reduction in these symptoms over the long term, and improve patients’ functional capacity. Schizophrenia is a highly drug-treated condition that uses an array of medications, including atypical and typical antipsychotics, resulting in a complex treatment algorithm. Although this drug market is saturated with generic therapies, the need for longer-acting agents and more-effective drugs gives branded agents (e.g., Janssen's Invega Trinza, Intra-Cellular Therapies’ Caplyta, Alkermes’s Lybalvi, AbbVie’s Vraylar) the opportunity to be incorporated into the treatment algorithm. Our Treatment Algorithms study provides national patient-level claims data to explore the use of key therapies in both newly diagnosed and recently treated patients, providing insight into the current treatment landscape for schizophrenia.
- What patient shares do key therapies and brands garner by line of therapy in newly diagnosed schizophrenia patients? What are the quarterly trends in prescribing among recently treated and newly diagnosed patients?
- How have oral (e.g., Caplyta, Rexulti, Vraylar) and long-acting injectables (e.g., Abilify Maintena, Aristada, Invega Sustenna, Invega Trinza) been integrated into the treatment algorithm, and what are their sources of business?
- What percentage of schizophrenia patients receive drug therapy within one year of diagnosis, and how quickly? What percentage of patients progress to later lines of therapy within one year of diagnosis?
- What percentage of schizophrenia patients are treated with monotherapy versus combination therapy? What are the most commonly used combinations?
- What are the product-level compliance and persistency rates among drug-treated patients?
