Research and Markets: PharmaPoint: Rheumatoid Arthritis - Germany Drug Forecast and Market Analysis: Event-Driven Update

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of GlobalData's new report "PharmaPoint: Rheumatoid Arthritis - Germany 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.

German physicians included in our survey typically follow guidelines such as ACR or DGRH (German Society for Rheumatology), but also follow their own clinical experience; they treat patients on a case-by-case basis. In Germany, about 29% of referrals of patients presenting in any stage come from PCPs or General Practitioners (GP) regardless of which potential stage the patient is in. Also, most people seeking treatment are within the 36-55 age range (younger than in the US and UK). Within this age group, males and females are represented fairly equally.
