DUBLIN--(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/ndhznv/drg_insight) has announced the addition of Decision Resources, Inc's new report "DRG Insight: Rheumatoid Arthritis (G7)" to their offering.)--Research and Markets (
DRG Insights takes the most relevant information and insights from across our portfolio for BioPharma and Med-Tech products and delivers the insight heavy perspective that you need to generate better ideas and deliver more successful campaigns and initiatives. The rheumatoid arthritis (RA) therapy market has matured to the point that TNF-a inhibitors are firmly established as first-line biological agents.
Biologics from other drug classes - the interleukin-6 inhibitor tocilizumab (Roche/Chugai's Actemra/RoActemra), the selective costimulation modulator abatacept (Bristol-Myers Squibb/Ono Pharmaceutical's Orencia), and the B-cell-targeted therapy rituximab (Biogen Idec/Roche/Chugai/Zenyaku Kogyo's Rituxan, Roche's MabThera) - underscore the dominance of the TNF-a inhibitors because these newer agents are reserved for patients who fail to achieve an adequate response to TNF-a inhibitor therapy.
For emerging agents, the remaining opportunity is limited and the barrier to entry is high in the absence of clear advantages and improvements over marketed therapies. The pending approval of oral kinase inhibitors with compelling efficacy have the potential, if they are priced less than the biologics, to shift the treatment algorithm to delay initiation of biological therapy.
