Ustekinumab is indicated for the management of moderate to severe plaque psoriasis (a skin disease in which red, scaly patches form on some areas of the body) in adults and children 6 years or older who are candidates for phototherapy or systemic therapy. It is in a class of medications called monoclonal antibodies. Ustekinumab is used alone or in combination with methotrexate (rasuvo, otrexup, trexall) to treat psoriatic arthritis in adults. Psoriatic arthritis is a condition that causes joint pain and swelling and scales on the skin. Moreover, it is also used to treat Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. However, Crohn's disease is a condition in which the body attacks the lining of the digestive tract, causing pain, diarrhea, weight loss, and fever. Ustekinumab works by stopping the action of certain cells in the body that cause the symptoms of psoriatic arthritis, plaque psoriasis, ulcerative colitis, and Crohn's disease. Common side effects include nausea, headache, tiredness runny, stuffed nose, or sneezing, and joint pain. Furthermore, other serious side effects include seizures, vision changes, difficulty in breathing, and others.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

COVID-19 is an infectious disease that originated in Hubei province of the Wuhan city in China in late December. The highly contagious disease, caused by a virus, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), is transmitted from human to human. Since the outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to almost 213 countries around the globe with the World Health Organization declaring it a public health emergency on March 11, 2020.

Pharmaceutical and biotech companies together with governments around the globe are working to address the COVID-19 outbreak, from supporting the development of vaccines to planning for medicine supply chain challenges. Currently, around 115 vaccine candidates and 155 molecules are in the R&D pipeline. Moreover, commonly used drugs such as hydroxychloroquine have witnessed a dramatic surge in demand for the management of COVID-19. Such high demand for these drugs has presented huge opportunities for manufacturers of COVID-19 management drugs, as many developed countries are facing shortage of these drugs. Thus, the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries are expected witness a significant growth in the future owing to the demand for vaccine and treatment drugs for COVID-19. This in turn is expected to have a significant impact on the ustekinumab market.
