Crohn's Pipeline: Janssen Seeks New Niche For Stelara As Biologics Use Rises

This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

Doctors who treat Crohn's disease are prescribing biologics more frequently than in the past to quickly reduce inflammation, but they're searching for alternatives to tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors to cut the side effect risks, and that is where the Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Janssen Biotech Inc. may find its best niche for Stelara (ustekinumab).

New Crohn’s Indication Puts Janssen’s Stelara On Equal Ground With Anti-TNFs

J&J’s Janssen Biotech subsidiary won FDA approval for the IL-12/IL-23 inhibitor Stelara to treat Crohn’s disease, giving it a second-line position alongside anti-TNF therapies for patients in need of new options.

Bundled Contracts To Defend Against Biosimilars May Face Payer Skepticism

Lilly’s Olumiant Could Get Blood Clot Redemption With EUA For COVID

When the US FDA approved Olumiant (baricitinib) for RA, it insisted on a lower dose because of fears of blood clots. Now that an NIH trial has shown that the product plus Gilead’s Veklury (remdesivir) provided a statistically significant reduction in time to recovery versus remdesivir alone for hospitalized COVID patients, Olumaint may get an emergency use authorization from FDA to treat a condition that itself causes blood clots. That doesn't mean the black box is going away; it's just a reminder that there is as much magic and mystery to medicine sometimes as there is science.
