London, United Kingdom, September 20, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Visiongain forecasts that the multiple myeloma treatment market will expand rapidly with the approval of new drugs. The market is already one of the most dynamic segments in oncology, revolutionised by the 2006 approval of Celgene’s Thalomid and then Revlimid, and Janssen’s Velcade. In July 2012, the market reached a new milestone with the approval of Onyx’s Kyprolis, a proteasome inhibitor with an improved safety profile and potential to be another blockbuster.
James Evans, a pharmaceutical industry analyst in visiongain, said: “The years 2012 to 2013 will see two important new products reach the market, Onyx’s Kyprolis and Celgene’s Actimid. Both of these have advantages over current drugs, but they’re basically incremental improvements on what we already have – proteasome inhibitors and immunomodulators.
“The next real shift for the market will come with the approval of newer mechanisms of action. Promising candidates in the pipeline include HDAC inhibitors, kinase inhibitors and orally-bioavailable second-generation proteasome inhibitors. However, perhaps the most exciting pipeline drug is elotuzumab by BMS and Abbott, a CS1 glycoprotein-targeting mAb, which has recorded high response rates in phase II trials. Behind elotuzumab, there are 30 or so other mAbs targeting this market, and they could make a major impact, alongside other new biologics.”
