The FDA last week approved AbbVie’s Skyrizi for the treatment of moderately to severely active Crohn’s disease. It will be the first IL-23 inhibitor in the Crohn’s market basket. Skyrizi was first approved in April 2019 as a treatment for severe plaque psoriasis, an indication for which it currently holds covered or better status for 98% of all insured lives under the pharmacy benefit. About 38% of insured lives have preferred access to Skyrizi, largely with utilization management restrictions applied.
