Biosimilars | Emerging Biosimilars | Immunology | Inflectra | Wave 1 | US | 2017

Biosimilars│Emerging Biosimilars│Inflectra │U.S. Wave 1 is the first installment of a three-wave, syndicated report series, tracking physician perception and uptake of Pfizer/Celltrion’s Inflectra (biosimilar infliximab [infliximab-dyyb]) in the United States. The series is based on data collected at one, six, and twelve months’ postcommercial launch of Inflectra, with U.S.-based rheumatologists, gastroenterologists, and dermatologists. Along with awareness, familiarity, and perception of biosimilars in general, and Inflectra specifically, the research also explores physicians’ trial, adoption, and usage of Inflectra, including anticipated future trends and impact of its uptake on other immune biologics. Promotional efforts by Johnson & Johnson/Janssen and Pfizer are explored, as well as prescriber and nonprescriber profiles, and benchmarking comparisons against other available biosimilars.
