The market for Psoriasis (PSO) therapies is predicted to grow by nearly 66% by 2023, when it will be worth $3.7 billion, due to the continued uptake of the premium-price biologics and novel therapies expected to launch over the period. This growth will be driven by an increase treatment population and the continued uptake of biologics and advanced therapies.

RealWorld Dynamix™: Biologic/Otezla Switching in Psoriasis (US) will help you to understand the drivers of treatment switches in this volatile market. By analyzing only recent switches, real insights into prescribing behavior can be unearthed at the most dynamic end of the market. The resulting data set is a rich source of information and has multiple applications, including the quantitative definition of the winners and losers, by patient segment and recent therapy switches. This report will be an invaluable resource for addressing some of the key strategic issues and opportunities facing brands in the PSO space.

RealWorld Dynamix™: Biologic/Otezla Switching in Psoriasis (US) is based on a robust and deep patient chart analysis of ~1000 PSO patients who were switched from one biologic or Otezla to a different brand in the past three months. Each physician completes an in-depth medical history of their last five patients who met the study inclusion criteria. An excellent augmentation to claims data, this study also captures the clinician’s perspective on why the switch was made and the new brand chosen as well as future intentions should the response be suboptimal. In addition to patient demographics and treatment history, clinical assessments, diagnostic tests and laboratory values are included to provide insight into the clinical course of the disease.

This is the second wave of the report (fielded 2017, 2018).
