Ulcerative Colitis – Current Treatment – Detailed, Expanded Analysis: Pediatric (US)

Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a chronic intermittent relapsing disorder of the large intestine and rectum. Treatment typically begins with conventional agents (e.g., 5-aminosalicylic acids [5-ASAs]) that are often effective for those patients with mild to moderate disease. Treatment then progresses to more-potent drugs, such as immunosuppressants and/or biologics, as needed. Among the biologics, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha inhibitors (Janssen’s Remicade and AbbVie’s Humira) and a cell adhesion molecule (CAM) inhibitor (Takeda’s Entyvio) are the mainstays of treatment, followed by an IL-12/23 inhibitor (Janssen’s Stelara). However, oral targeted therapies, such as Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitors (Pfizer’s Xeljanz / Xeljanz XR and AbbVie’s Rinvoq) and a sphingosine 1-phosphate receptor (S1P-R) modulator (BMS’s Zeposia), are increasing the market competition among later-line targeted therapies. The impending entry of adalimumab biosimilars in the United States will further impact market dynamics.
