April was an impressive show of pharma TV ad strength even for long-standing top spender Humira. The AbbVie immunology med and megablockbuster topped the list in a big way this month with more than $45 million in national TV buys, according to data from real-time TV ad tracker

That’s up from $31.5 million in March, an increase of 45%. Pfizer’s Xeljanz remained in second place for the third month in a row with $25.8 million in spending, and Gilead Sciences joined in the top 3 with $18.2 million.

But back to Humira, which is suffering under biosimilar assault in Europe. Executives warned in January that sales losses outside the U.S. could amount to $2 billion this year. And as analysts rework their forecast to account for the earlier-than-expected decline, AbbVie’s going all out with its promotions in the U.S., where the med won’t face biosimilars till 2023. Humira’s global sales topped $20 billion last year, with $13.6 billion of that revenue coming from the U.S.

Meanwhile, Gilead is working to counter big losses in hepatitis C with new HIV pills, and one of its recent launches has hit the airwaves in a big way. Brand-new to the list this month is Gilead’s Biktarvy on the strength of its first big TV push after its February 2018 approval. The three-drug combo pill has already hit blockbuster status, racking up $1.18 billion in its first not-quite-full year of sales.

Meanwhile, Sunovion’s Latuda, Pfizer and Bristol Myers-Squibb’s Eliquis and Eli Lilly’s Taltz all rejoined the list in April. Overall, pharma TV ad spending among the top 10 stayed about the same month over month with a total of $168 million spent, down just slightly from $169 million in March.
