Remicade's challenging dosing reduces its impact as an ideal ulcerative colitis drug
By: Vivisum Partners, LLC
The two-decade old biologic gained recognition as the first advanced therapy for ulcerative colitis. Though Remicade's efficacy is not in question, gastroenterologists have more options to offer ulcerative colitis patients treatments with easier dosing schedules. With Humira offering a subcutaneous injectable and oral therapies, such as Zeposia, now available, patients and doctors view Remicade's traditional infusion therapy as inconvenient.
Vivisum analyzed gastroenterologists' perceptions of branded ulcerative colitis medications. The analysis contained in Ulcerative Colitis Rational Brand Perceptions shows that gastroenterologists rank Remicade poorly in three key clinical attributes: dosing, safety and tolerability. For all three attributes, surveyed healthcare providers (HCPs) include Remicade among the bottom two available treatments. Comparatively, Entyvio ranks among the two best treatments for safety and tolerability, as well as efficacy and manufacturer support.
The findings in Vivisum's research offers a quantitative assessment of gastroenterologists' perceptions of ulcerative colitis brands' clinical benefits. The data identify which ulcerative colitis brands HCPs perceive as the most ideal treatment. Additionally, the analysis includes a proprietary matrix of net perception scores that compares gastroenterologists' perceptions of each brand's clinical attributes. These perceptions are then mapped against brands that HCPs described as the least or most ideal ulcerative colitis drug.
