Psoriatic Arthritis | Emerging Therapies | Xeljanz (tofacitinib) | US | Wave 1 | 2018

Market Outlook

Xeljanz is the first-in-class JAK inhibitor approved for psoriatic arthritis (PsA); it is also the only other oral targeted therapy, besides Celgene’s PDE-4 inhibitor, Otezla, approved for this indication. In recent years, multiple new therapies have been approved for the treatment of PsA. However, Xeljanz’s unique MOA, oral administration, and strong efficacy warrant the attention of both rheumatologists and dermatologists.

The PsA Emerging Therapy series includes three waves that will track the awareness, trial, and usage of Xeljanz since its approval in December 2017 for the treatment of PsA. In addition, the series will examine physician-anticipated future trends in PsA treatment and in particular Xeljanz uptake, as well as assess Pfizer’s promotional efforts.
