Scleroderma (Systemic Sclerosis) – Current Treatment – Detailed, Expanded Analysis: Treatment Algorithms: Claims Data Analysis (US)

Scleroderma (systemic sclerosis) (SSc) is a rare progressive autoimmune disorder characterized by skin fibrosis, systemic inflammation, and vasculopathy that can manifest as Raynaud’s phenomenon and painful digital ulcers. SSc-related pulmonary arterial hypertension, interstitial lung disease, and renal crisis in SSc patients underlie a high mortality rate. The treatment landscape for SSc is dominated by generics and off-label drugs to treat the wide array of SSc symptoms, with only Boehringer Ingelheim’s Ofev and Roche / Genentech’s Actemra as FDA-approved therapies. This report offers insights from real-world U.S. claims data into prescribing trends in SSc to help emerging players better understand current treatment practices in SSc and how to capitalize on the unmet needs in this underserved population.
