Pfizer, Inc. anticipate the FDA's decision on tofacitinib, a new arthritis drug

Pfizer, Inc. introduces a new rheumatic arthritis drug

The Food and Drug Administration is questioning the benefits and risks of a new rheumatoid arthritis drug created by Pfizer, Inc. Some possible risks of taking the drug, called tofacitinib, include an increase of lymphoma cancer cells, as well as infections. The purpose of the drug is to reduce swollen and tender joints. Pfizer could regain its renowned reputation since their release of Viagra over 10 years ago.

If the arthritis drug’s benefits are proven to trump its risks, and the drug approved, revenue is expected to reach $2 billion to $3 billion a year. The arthritis drug would be the first antirheumatic drug to be taken by mouth. Rheumatoid arthritis poses as one of the most lucrative diseases, earning drug companies $20 billion a year, as 1 percent of the American adult population suffers from the disease.

All patients are waiting for is the approval of FDA staff, to be determined in August. Pfizer plans for the arthritis drug to be made available if and as soon as they gain approval to do so.

“We continue to expect a positive panel outcome, after extensive discussions of the issues mentioned above,” said Michael Tong, analyst at Wells Fargo.

While Pfizer presented x-rays of the drug’s effects to prove that it worked, the FDA was not convinced that the drug was preventing or slowing the damage rheumatoid arthritis causes.

Since there are other treatments to rheumatoid arthritis that avoid the mentioned side effects, the FDA awaits reassurance that the arthritis drug slows down structural damage caused by the disease

Other treatments include injectable arthritis drugs called Humira, Enbrel, a product of Amgen Inc. and Johnson & Johnson’s Remicade. All of these are on the higher priced end, and all block a protein called tumor necrosis factor, which is related to inflammation.

Humira has earned Abbot Laboratories, Inc. $8 billion in sales annually, and the approval of tofacitinib would pose as a cheaper competitor to the arthritis drug industry.

  1. Wonderful article. Thanks too much for the breakdown you have presented here. I am still sort-of an illiterate on this topic. So this post was really helpful to me personally. My husband just launched his own ebook on this issue and I think some things learned from your post would enable me personally to give him the necessary support. Thanks!

  2. I have discovered that smart real estate agents everywhere you go are starting to warm up to FSBO Advertising. They are noticing that it’s more than simply placing a sign post in the front property. It’s really concerning building interactions with these dealers who sooner or later will become buyers. So, whenever you give your time and efforts to helping these vendors go it alone – the “Law of Reciprocity” kicks in. Interesting blog post.

  3. I’m writing to make you know of the fabulous encounter my wife’s child undergone going through the blog. She realized a good number of things, not to mention what it’s like to have an excellent giving spirit to make certain people just learn certain extremely tough subject areas. You undoubtedly surpassed readers’ desires. Many thanks for presenting the useful, trustworthy, revealing and as well as easy tips about this topic to Sandra.

  4. I enjoy your personal style of writing. I’m wondering in the event you might take a short look at my write-up and let me know what you think regarding my own style. I am not a natural English speaker so that’s why I’m asking.

  5. Normally I do not read article on blogs, but I would like to say that this write-up very forced me to try and do so! Your writing style has been surprised me. Thanks, very nice post.

  6. Youre so cool! I dont suppose Ive read anything such as this just before. So nice to seek out somebody with a few original ideas on this subject. realy we appreciate you starting this up. this site is something that is required on the net, a person with a little originality. valuable project for bringing something totally new towards the web!
