Emerging Biologicals will Grow the HS Market by Increasing Awareness and Treatment Rates for HS

Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) is characterized as a disease with some of the highest unmet needs in immunology. There is a lack of therapies available on the market and currently Humira (adalimumab) is the only approved biologic available for HS patients, which was approved for HS in 2015 in the US.

Due to the high unmet needs in HS, four companies are developing therapies for HS that are in the late-stage pipeline. Promising therapies being developed for HS include Novartis’ Cosentyx, Xbiotech’s bermekimab, InflaRX’s IFX-1, and ChemoCentryx’s avacopan. All of these agents are targeted for moderate and severe patients and are expected to drive growth of the HS market, as current treatment options are limited. In addition, adalimumab biosimilars are expected to launch during the forecast period and are set to negatively impact the sales of Humira. This will allow for increased competition in the HS market by impacting Humira’s first to market status. Overall, the HS market will increase during the forecast period due to the entrance of these four pipeline agents and increased uptake of therapeutics, as increasing awareness will promote diagnosis of HS and drive increased treatment rates, growing the HS market.

In this webinar Vikesh Devila, Analyst at GlobalData, will present an analysis of the overall HS pipeline with an emphasis on addressing patient groups of high unmet need (i.e., moderate to severe HS patients), by drawing on insights from GlobalData’s recently published report, Hidradenitis Suppurativa: Opportunity Analysis and Forecasts to 2028. An analysis of the currently available Humira will be provided as well as evaluations of emerging biological immunomodulators. Some of the promising pipeline agents will be profiled in detail. Michael Breen, Associate Director at GlobalData, will moderate a Q&A session following the presentation.
