Collaborations and Acquisitions – Imperative Strategy for Market Players

Major companies in the rheumatoid arthritis treatment market are actively engaging in acquisitions and expansions in order to enhance their product portfolios and outreach to a large number of customers. Globally, leading companies are acquiring other companies who are facing a large number of product recalls in the market.

  • In April 2021, Novartis signed an initial agreement with Roche to reserve capacity and implement technology transfer for the production of active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) for Roche’s Actemra/RoActemra® (tocilizumab), a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, which is also being tested in various clinical trials investigating the safety and efficacy in COVID-19-associated pneumonia.
  • In October 2020, Johnson & Johnson announced the successful acquisition of Momenta Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Momenta”), a company that discovered and developed novel therapies for immune-mediated diseases.

COVID-19 Crisis Impact

Due to the unprecedented pandemic scenario, the healthcare sector has been the central point across regions. As import activities were halted, this adversely affected the finances of a majority of healthcare companies. Every industry, including healthcare, is suffering from supply chain disruptions.

The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 outbreak a public health emergency of international significance on January 30, 2020. Around 210 countries have been affected by COVID-19. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis who contract COVID-19 infection, according to the Lancet Rheumatology 2020, are at a high risk of experiencing serious symptoms and complications.

Some DMARDs commonly used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, such as hydroxychloroquine drugs, are being investigated as potential therapy for COVID-19. Moreover, other generally used therapies such as biologics targeting interleukin (IL)-6 (sarilumab, tocilizumab) and IL-1 (anakinra) are being assessed in patients with COVID-19. Thus, COVID-19 infection uplifted growth opportunities for manufacturers of rheumatoid arthritis drugs. For instance,

  • Tocilizumab, a drug originally used for rheumatoid arthritis, is seeing increased use in treating severe COVID-19 patients.
  • A drug developed for rheumatoid arthritis by global pharma company Roche is licensed exclusively to Indian pharma company Cipla.
