Digital Landscape: Ankylosing Spondylitis


"Digital Landscape: Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS)", analyzes digital activities undertaken by pharma industry in support of therapies for active Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS)
  • The report includes digital activities directed towards patients and/or HCPs.

  • The geographic scope of the report is the United States, EUCAN (Canada and the 5EU countries - UK, Germany, France, Italy & Spain).

Key Highlights
  • US Patients: AbbVie and Novartis provide the strongest online support to AS patients in the US. Novartis was the most active in 2017 with a new Cosentyx campaign and unbranded activity on social media, while Janssen launched a counter-biosimilar campaign for Remicade. No AS-specific mobile apps detected for patients from pharma. Opportunity exists for a well-integrated unbranded campaign to support patients, linked to social media and a mobile app.

  • US HCPs: Feature-rich HCP brand sites exist for all biologics. Amgen, Novartis, and Janssen added new AS content to existing sites in 2017, while AbbVie rolled out new Humira initiatives for HCPs. Unbranded and mobile app landscapes are sparse. Opportunities may exist to develop or sponsor content with trusted non-pharma organizations. Social media activity restricted to corporate accounts.

  • EUCAN Patients: AbbVie provides the strongest branded and unbranded support to EUCAN patients followed by Novartis. Most recent social media activity detected by Novartis, while UCB provides the only AS-specific mobile app. Opportunity exists to provide multi-country, local-language support, incorporating unbranded campaigns with social media and mobile apps, where regulations allow.

  • EUCAN HCPs: The EUCAN HCP landscape in AS is sparse; activity is mainly limited to brand sites, with most seen in Germany and the UK. The unbranded and mobile app landscapes are particularly underdeveloped, and partnerships with non-pharma organizations may offer more effective opportunities to engage with and support HCPs.
