The rise in prevalence of rheumatoid arthritis increases the demand of rheumatoid arthritis drugs in the market. Currently, there is no permanent cure of the disease. However, the approved drugs in the market mainly aim to decrease inflammation, reduce pain, prevent bone deformity and to improve overall patient function. This possesses the unmet medical need for the development of more targeted therapies in the management of rheumatoid arthritis.
Presently, the treatment is done by non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents (NSAID), Corticosteroids and Disease Modifying Anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDS). Although both NSAIDs and DMARD agents improve symptoms of active rheumatoid arthritis, only DMARD agents have been shown to alter the disease course and improve radiographic outcomes.
Based on drug class, DMARDS contributed to the largest share in US market, accounting for nearly four-fifths of the overall market. Among the disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs, Methotrexate is the most popular drugs in the US market. According to analysis, nearly 60% of all rheumatoid arthritis patients are currently on or have been on methotrexate as it is recommended as first line of treatment.
