The psoriasis market has become increasingly lucrative owing to the growing use of biologics in the moderate to severe population who cannot be adequately controlled with topical agents. The dominance of the TNF-alpha inhibitors and IL-12/23 Stelara (Janssen) is being challenged by the introduction of the highly effective IL-17 inhibitors. In particular, the uptake of Novartis’ Cosentyx has been remarkable in the first two years of its launch, but faces competition from the new IL-17 inhibitors, in particular Eli Lilly’s Taltz. In addition, Celgene’s oral PDE-4 inhibitor Otezla has been approved for over three years in the United States and is gaining steady uptake in early lines of therapy. Analysis of claims data and electronic health records provides an objective lens to see how physicians prescribe therapies and what the clinic profiles of treated patients are.
