The Impact of EU5 Payer Policy on Prescribing in Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and Multiple Myeloma | Physician & Payer Forum | EU5 | 2014

In Europe, multiple myeloma (MM) treatment is centered on the use of three major agents—Janssen’s Velcade (bortezomib), Celgene’s Revlimid (lenalidomide), and Celgene’s Thalidomide (thalidomide)—while the treatment for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) has Roche’s MabThera (rituximab) as a central player. All of these drugs have demonstrated clear improvements in clinical practice and have achieved significant commercial success within their indications. Multiple emerging agents spanning several different dug classes are in development for MM and NHL. Although many of these emerging therapies appear clinically promising, they face considerable competition from currently available therapies. The presence of several promising agents in development, coupled with dynamic markets, make the MM and NHL indications very exciting from a commercial, as well as a clinical point of view.
