Sun says that it is "excited" with Ilumya’ s initial launch uptake in the crowded US psoriasis segment, but is pushing ahead with "speedy execution" of plans for the product before the potential arrival of new rivals such as AbbVie’s same-class therapy risankizumab.
Sun Pharma acknowledged the intense competition that awaits its psoriasis asset, Ilumya (tildrakizumab) in the US, but maintained that the overall profile of the IL-23p19 inhibitor, which is expected to debut in Q2FY19, was “liked” by customers.
FDA approved Ilumya for moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, furthering the competitive dynamics in the crowded psoriasis market, and establishing the biologic as a major pillar of Sun's new branded specialty drug business.
