Vitiligo | Executive Insights | US | 2020

Vitiligo is a chronic skin depigmentation disorder characterized by the destruction of melanocytes. The etiology is multifactorial; both genetic and environmental factors are implicated in disease initiation. The burden on patients is high owing to the disease’s social stigma, which negatively impacts patients’ QOL. Although no therapies are approved for vitiligo, treatment providers commonly prescribe topical/oral steroids or other immunomodulators alone or in combination with narrow-band UVB. The vitiligo pipeline is dominated by investigational JAK inhibitors that are being developed in oral or topical formulations. If proven efficacious, these agents will enjoy huge commercial opportunities because of the immense unmet need in this space.
