Biosimilars – A Game Changer in the Immunology Rheumatoid Arthritis Market

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune disease that affect joints, connective tissue, muscles, tendons and fibrous tissue. Around 1.9 million people in the United States suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. RA has a large impact on the quality of life, both physically and mentally. Rheumatoid arthritis patients find difficulty in maintaining daily functions and a poorly maintained disease could cause joint destruction and disability. Many affected patients also tend to suffer from depression. The introduction of biologics has revolutionized the treatment and care for rheumatoid arthritis.

[...]Another issue with sutureless heart valves would be the population they can reach. The regular tissue heart valve market is fairly mature and sutureless heart valves do not add any new types of patients. Transcatheter heart valve replacement products are successful because they were able to reach a population of inoperable patients due to their risk status deterring them from open heart surgery (Hayashida, K. & Lefevre, T. 2011). So, while sutureless heart valves may be a better product, the market may not expand or grow and therefore only cannibalizes the existing stented and stentless tissue heart valve markets.
