Autoimmune diseases are not a single therapeutic area, but rather a spectrum of indications with overlapping mechanisms. Rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, systemic lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and other inflammatory diseases frequently share molecular targets, raising the question of which indication to pursue first. Development plans must account not only for mechanistic fit, but also market size and pricing strategy. The challenge is to adopt a planning process that leverages core skills and assets across therapeutic category boundaries in order to fully realize a candidate’s commercial potential.
