KOL Perspectives: IL-6 inhibitors in Rheumatoid Arthritis


This KOL Insight briefing focuses on perceptions of IL-6 inhibitors in rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

The briefing includes analysis of KOL opinion on the following topic areas-

- Current or anticipated future use of sarilumab in RA

- Current use of tocilizumab in RA

Key Highlights

- Majority of US but not EU patients have access to sarilumab, with KOLs primarily positioning sarilumab in MTX-IR patients or after anti-TNFs

- Most KOLs position tocilizumab after anti-TNFs, partly due to payer pressure, with first-line use possible in MTX-IR or ineligible patients

- In the next 12 months, most KOLs expect an increase in use of sarilumab, and a reduction in use of tocilizumab.
