DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/md824k/pharmapoint) has announced the addition of GlobalData's new report "PharmaPoint: Rheumatoid Arthritis - Italy Drug Forecast and Market Analysis Event-Driven Update" to their offering.
The RA market is currently very dynamic, with the November 6, 2012 FDA approval of Pfizer's Xeljanz (tofacitinib) and novel oral therapies awaiting approval such as: Eli Lilly's anti-BAFF, tabalumab and JAK1,2 inhibitor, baricitinib, and Rigel/AZ's SYK inhibitor, fostamatinib. These compounds will challenge the current biologics in the attempt to dislodge the stronghold of the TNF inhibitors, if their safety and efficacy profiles are proven once they enter the market.
As in other regions, Italian physicians follow guidelines such as ACR, but also follow their own clinical experience. The process to diagnose a patient with RA in Italy usually begins with the PCP or GP regardless of which potential stage the patient is in, then progresses with the referral to a rheumatologist for further diagnosis and treatment. Also, most patients are between the ages of 35 and 55 and equally divided between male and females.
