() has announced the addition of the report to their offering.

In-depth analysis of key brands and pipeline candidates for inflammatory bowel disease, including a review of new clinical data and a comparative evaluation of clinical and commercial drug attributes to determine competitiveness in the marketplace.

Datamonitor foresees rising competition in the Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis markets over the next five years. Several pipeline and marketed drugs are competing to garner patient share from dominant brand Remicade (infliximab; Janssen Biotech/Merck & Co./Mitsubishi Tanabe). High unmet need for an efficacious maintenance therapy appears to be a key driver for these products.


- Enhance understanding of how marketed and pipeline candidates compare to one another in terms of clinical and commercial attributes.

- Access Datamonitor's independent appraisal of key brands and pipeline therapies for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

- Review important clinical milestones of key late-stage pipeline candidates, with extensive commentary on new clinical trial data.

- Determine to what extent future therapies satisfy the main clinical unmet needs in ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease treatment.


- Prior to Humira's approval for ulcerative colitis in Europe in April 2012, Remicade was the only biologic for this indication in all seven major markets. Its lead is also under challenge from pipeline biologics such as Simponi (golimumab; Janssen Biotech/Merck & Co.) and vedolizumab (Takeda), highlighting rising competition within the market.

- New trial data suggest that pipeline drugs vedolizumab, vercirnon (GSK1605786; GlaxoSmithKline), and Stelara (ustekinumab; Janssen Biotech) aim to fulfill the pressing need for an efficacious maintenance of remission therapy. These agents pose a threat to established anti-TNFs Remicade, Humira and Cimzia (certolizumab; UCB).

- With impressive efficacy and US label expansion in July 2011, Cosmo's Lialda shows much clinical potential in UC, but tofacitinib's novelty and backing from Pfizer means it takes the lead in terms of commercial potential. In Crohn's disease, vercirnon's oral, once-daily dosing and positive initial clinical data boost its stance in that market.
