GlobalData has released its new PharmaPoint Drug Evaluation report, Rituxan (Rheumatoid Arthritis) Forecast and Market Analysis. The RA market is currently very dynamic, with the November 6, 2012 FDA approval of Pfizers Xeljanz (tofacitinib) and novel oral therapies awaiting approval such as: Eli Lillys anti-BAFF, tabalumab and JAK1,2 inhibitor, baricitinib, and Rigel/AZs 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.
Rituxan was co-developed and marketed in the US (under the brand name Rituxan) by Biogen Idec and Genentech (now a part of Roche). It is marketed outside of the US by Roche under the brand name MabThera. Rituxan was initially approved for the treatment of lymphoma and it was the first mAb to be approved for the treatment of cancer. In 2006, Rituxan was approved in the US and 5EU for the treatment of moderate to severe active RA in patients who do not adequately respond to one or more TNF inhibitors.
