Hidradenitis suppurativa is a chronic skin condition that features pea-sized to marble-sized lumps under the skin causing abscesses and scarring. These deep-seated lumps typically develop where skin rubs together, such as the armpits, groin, between the buttocks and under the breasts.

The exact cause of Hidradenitis suppurativa is unknown but risk factors include age, sex, race, inheritance, overweight, smoking, blocked hair follicles with keratin and a combination of genetic and environmental factors.
Hidradenitis suppurativa symptoms include blackheads appearing as small pitted skin areas and painful pea-sized lumps. Some bumps or sores get bigger, break open, drain pus with an odor, cysts and scars.

Hidradenitis suppurativa is diagnosed by physical examination based on skin appearance and signs and symptoms. If pus or liquid drainage is seen, a lab test will be conducted to check the infection.

Hidradenitis suppurativa is treated by surgery and drugs like antibiotics, steroids and hormonal therapy such as birth control pills, spironolactone or finasteride.

The pipeline of Hidradenitis suppurativa treatment market consists of a great variable of drugs. Interleukin-17A (IL17A) Inhibitors, Mitogen-Activated Protein Kinase-Activated Protein Kinase-2 (MK2) Inhibitors, Murine Double Minute 2 (MDM2) Inhibitors, Interleukin-1 Receptor-Associated Kinase 4 (IRAK-4) Inhibitors, and some others are the most highlighted class of this indication. Ongoing research and current trials have the potential to change the market.

More than 30 key players, including pharma giants such as Abbvie, Boehringer Ingelheim, Eli Lilly, Novartis, Novartis, Pfizer and others are working to bring novel therapies that overcome the roadblocks of AML treatment pipeline.

Key Products

AIN-457 (secukinumab) is under development for the treatment of moderate-to-severe hidradenitis suppurativa (HS). In September 2022, Novartis announced the results from two pivotal Phase III studies (SUNSHINE and SUNRISE), in which Cosentyx (secukinumab) demonstrated rapid and sustained relief from the common clinical signs and symptoms of moderate to severe hidradenitis suppurative (HS) with a favourable safety profile. These Phase III data have been submitted to regulatory authorities in Europe.

Bimekizumab (BIMZELX) is under development for the treatment of moderate-to-severe hidradenitis suppurativa. in December 2022. UCB announced top-line results from two Phase III studies, BE HEARD I and BE HEARD II, evaluating the efficacy and safety of bimekizumab in adults with moderate-to-severe hidradenitis suppurativa.

ATI-450 (Zunsemetinib, CDD-450) is under development for the treatment of hidradenitis suppurativa. In 2017, Aclaris Therapeutics acquired Confluence Life Science Inc. At the closing, Aclaris paid approximately USD 10 million in cash and issued approximately 350,000 shares of its common stock, with a value of approximately USD 10 million on the closing data, to the former equity holders of Confluence.

KT-474 is under development for the treatment of hidradenitis suppurativa. In July 2020, Kymera Therapeutics entered into a multi-program strategic collaboration with Sanofi to develop and commercialise protein degrader therapies targeting IRAK4 in patients with immune inflammatory diseases.
