Formulary guidance and transparency from P&T to point of care


Reality Check on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

Market access for Duchenne muscular dystrophy treatments reveals differences in payer coverage across each major channel, as well as specific trends in the drug landscape.  

To help make sense of this new research, MMIT's team of experts has analyzed the data for you and summarized the key findings:

  • Payer Insights: Under the pharmacy benefit, about 49% of the lives under commercial formularies are covered with utilization management restrictions
  • Class Trends: More recently, in August 2020, the agency gave accelerated approval to NS Pharma, Inc.’s Viltepso (viltolarsen) for people amenable to exon 53 skipping therapy
  • Key Findings: There are multiple products in Phase III or later of clinical trials. Treatments in the development pipeline include therapeutic approaches that restore or replace dystrophin and those that treat Duchenne symptoms, such as those that protect muscles by reducing fibrosis and inflammation

What can pharma do to curb this trend and overcome these challenges?
