Patient numbers and prescriptions in the US for Sun’s psoriasis therapy Ilumya are steadily on the rise, and the Indian firm said that the arrival of AbbVie’s rival Skyrizi hasn’t adversely impacted its formulary position.
Central to AbbVie’s plans to endure biosimilar erosion to Humira, Skyrizi gets US approval in psoriasis, with approval of upadacitinib expected in RA this year.
Around 800 physicians have prescribed Sun’s Ilumya, giving it some early traction in the competitive US psoriasis market. The Indian firm is striving to push harder and will also take a call on pursuing additional indications for the product.
