Otezla is the leading treatment in the post-topical, pre-biologic segment in its approved indications. Otezla is currently approved for three indications in the U.S. - the treatment of patients with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis who are candidates for phototherapy or systemic therapy; adult patients with active psoriatic arthritis; and adult patients with oral ulcers associated with Beh├žet's Disease. Otezla has patent exclusivity through at least 2028 in the U.S.

Otezla offers many benefits including:
  • A strong strategic fit with Amgen's long-standing expertise in psoriasis and inflammation
  • A differentiated, oral therapy complementary to Amgen's existing inflammation franchise of innovative biologics and biosimilar products
  • Acceleration of Amgen's near- and long-term revenue growth


Sales of Otezla in 2019 were $1.6 billion driven by strong volume growth. Amgen is focused on medicines that can deliver sustained, long-term volume driven growth and the company believes there is a substantial opportunity to grow Otezla through global expansion and new indications!

Bringing Innovative Medicines to Patients -- The number of patients suffering from chronic inflammatory diseases is growing worldwide. Amgen is a leader in this very large therapeutic category. Otezla is positioned as a therapy of first-choice in patients with moderate-to-severe psoriasis who are not satisfied with topical therapies given its differentiated mechanism of action and established efficacy and safety profile. In psoriatic arthritis, Otezla is positioned for use in patients early in their disease and/or with moderate joint involvement.
