The migraine prophylaxis market stands poised for disruption following the launch of three anti-CGRP monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) in the United States in 2018, with a fourth to launch in 2020. Amgen / Novartis’s Aimovig (erenumab) was the first to launch in May, giving it an approximately four-month head-start over Teva’s Ajovy and Eli Lilly’s Emgality. This U.S. launch-tracking series—DRG’s companion to our three-wave Aimovig series—will assess Ajovy and Emgality’s uptake and performance through Year one. Additionally, we will examine how Ajovy, Emgality, and Aimovig compare on a number of attributes and assess how physician adoption, opinion, and expectations shift as they gain more experience with each of these novel therapies.
Emerging Therapies is a three-wave series based on primary research data collected at one, six, and twelve months post-commercial launch with U.S. physicians. The research captures physicians’ awareness, perceptions, and usage of the launched product, as well as the impact on current therapies and anticipated future trends. Insight is also provided on promotional efforts, prescriber and nonprescriber profiles, and benchmarking against other launched agents.
