Treat-to-Target Approach Reduces Incidence of Disease Activity

Although healthcare companies in the systemic lupus erythematosus treatment market have made significant advances regarding drug development, certain side effects of these drugs are anticipated to negatively influence market growth. For instance, immunosuppressive drugs are estimated to reach a value of ~US$ 1.5 billion by 2027, and continue to dominate the systemic lupus erythematosus treatment market throughout the forecast period. However, enduring disease activity with recurring flare ups and accumulating toxicity due to glucocorticoids (GC) and immunosuppressive (IS) medications are some of the side effects associated with SLE drugs.

Since SLE is a heterogeneous disease of varying severity, healthcare companies in the systemic lupus erythematosus treatment landscape are beginning to understand that, developing 'one size fits all' immunosuppressive drugs increases the burden of symptoms in patients. This is why, healthcare companies in the systemic lupus erythematosus treatment market are adopting the 'treat-to-target' approach to develop drugs that effectively manage and minimize the incidence of disease activity. Healthcare providers are implementing patient-tailored therapeutic strategies with the introduction of improved biologic agents.

Biologics and Belimumab Stabilize Therapeutic Armamentarium for Stakeholders in Supply Chain

With the help of successful randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and approvals from health commissions, healthcare companies in the systemic lupus erythematosus treatment market are capitalizing on improved formulations of biologic agents. Other drugs such as biologics and B-cell modulators are projected to be the second-highest revenue generating source for manufacturers, with a value of ~US$ 785 million by 2027. Due to the increasing availability of belimumab, healthcare companies are gaining credibility, as this antibody is found to be efficacious in minimizing flare ups and disease activity. Thus, belimumab has helped stakeholders in the SLE supply chain to maintain a stable therapeutic armamentarium in the market.

Healthcare companies in the systemic lupus erythematosus treatment market are increasing their focus on novel biologic agents that target B cells, T cells, and cytokines, for improving the quality of life in patients. The market value share of the intravenous mode of delivery is estimated to grow from ~39% currently to ~44% by 2027 in the systemic lupus erythematosus treatment market. This is well justified, as healthcare providers are increasingly diagnosing patients with belimumab through intravenous formulations.

Supportive Treatments Help Companies Broaden Revenue Sources

Apart from advancements in drug delivery, healthcare providers in the systemic lupus erythematosus treatment market are offering supportive treatments, since SLE patients are prone to comorbidities. Thus, healthcare companies can supply hospitals and other healthcare providers with vaccinations to prevent common disease problems such as influenza and streptococcus pneumonia. There is also an increasing need for vaccination against the human papilloma virus (HPV) in adult SLE patients.

Maintaining a steady supply chain of calcium and vitamin D supplements can help healthcare companies in the systemic lupus erythematosus treatment market to broaden and increase their bracket for revenue sources. These supplements are highly recommended for patients who are prescribed glucocorticoids, to avoid the risks of GC-induced osteoporosis. Companies should increase research & development to improve bidirectional control of the risk factors associated with cardiovascular diseases (CVD). Doing this will help them understand the disease-related factors associated with the consumption of statins and antihypertensive drugs by CVD patients.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Analysts of the systemic lupus erythematosus treatment market estimate a promising growth for the market during the forecast period. Healthcare providers should prescribe low-dose aspirin in conjunction with antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL) to reduce cardiovascular events in patients.

However, in many cases, ineffective management of SLE leads to severe drug-induced toxicity and organ deterioration. Thus, healthcare providers are increasing awareness about long-term maintenance therapy with hydroxychloroquine, as this technique has improved the life expectancy of SLE sufferers.

Since belimumab is the only targeted therapy approved by health commissions for the treatment of SLE, healthcare companies should increase their focus on developing new molecular formulations of the antibody.
