Urticaria | Treatment Algorithms: Claims Data Analysis | Chronic Inducible Urticaria | US | 2022

Chronic inducible urticaria (CIndU) encompasses various chronic urticaria subtypes caused by specific triggers. CIndU seems to be more resistant than chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) to standard doses of antihistamines, although claims data analysis reveals positive uptake trends among the more-recent second-generation antihistamines Clarinex and Claritin. Vistaril and montelukast are also key drugs in the CIndU therapy market and are often used in combination therapy. Indeed, current treatment guidelines recommend the use of leukotriene receptor antagonists (e.g., montelukast) as add-on treatment. Although no biologics have been approved for CIndU, we observe off-label use of certain biologics (e.g., TNF inhibitors, Roche / Novartis’s Xolair, Sanofi / Regeneron’s Dupixent) for this indication, mainly as later-line therapy. Thus, there is a market for more-effective drugs targeting CIndU.

Questions answered

  • What patient shares do key therapies and brands garner by line of therapy in newly diagnosed CIndU patients? What are the quarterly trends in prescribing among recently and newly treated CIndU patients?
  • How have antihistamines, TNF inhibitors, Xolair, and Dupixent been integrated into the treatment algorithm, and what are their sources of business?
  • What percentage of CIndU 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 CIndU 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?
