Cardiovascular diseases (CVD), including ischemic heart disease and stroke, are the leading causes of mortality in the world. The term acute coronary syndrome (ACS) applies to a spectrum of acute CVD states that are precipitated by coronary artery occlusion (stenosis) that results in ischemia (a reduction or loss of blood flow to tissue) and the necrosis of myocardial tissue .In the most modern use of the term, ACS strictly refers to a range of ischemic cardiovascular events that includes unstable angina (UA), myocardial infarction (MI) and/or death due to myocardial ischemia. In general, these ACS events can be viewed as the culmination of coronary artery disease (CAD), the asymptomatic build-up of atherosclerotic plaque on the walls of the coronary arteries. The triggering of an ACS event stemming from UA or MI initiates the acute phase treatment setting where therapeutic interventions are utilized to reverse and prevent the physiochemical processes that lead to coronary stenosis. Whereas, the chronic phase treatment setting involves secondary preventative measures that are used to avoid recurrent ACS events from occurring.
Key Questions Answered
- The new generation antiplatelets, Brilinta and Effient will see a significant increase in patient shares for the treatment ACS against the previous cornerstone, clopidogrel. However, there are considerably high unmet needs within the indication. What are the main unmet needs in this market? Will the drugs under development fulfil the unmet needs of the ACS market?
- The PCSK9 inhibitors recently launched into the CV market, and these are predicted to have a notable impact in the ACS space once their CV outcomes data is shown. The most notable candidate in the current late-stage ACS pipeline is ETC-1002, which is vying to target the needed statin intolerant ACS population. Will these newly marketed and late-stage drugs make a significant impact on the ACS market? Which of these drugs will have the highest peak sales at the highest CAGR, and why?
- We have seen a notable increase in the ACS population in terms of diagnosed prevalent ACS cases , as well as ACS hospitalisations (incidence and recurrent events). How will epidemiological changes impact the growth of the future market?
- The main driver of the significant expansion of the ACS market will be the increase in use and physician confidence in the PCSK9 inhibitor class, which will hold four major players by the end of this forecast. Novel lipid lowering therapy, ETC-1002, will also be a major contributor, vying to steal majority of patient shares for the statin intolerant ACS population by the end of this forecast.
- The major global barrier for the ACS market will be the generic erosion of the key antiplatelet therapies, Brilinta and Effient by the end of this forecast. Both drugs will pick up significant momentum in sales prior to patent expiry.
- The dynamics of the ACS market will shift greatly towards solving the atherosclerotic burden associated in ACS from the historical strategy of developing antithrombotic therapies.
- The key market opportunities lie in addressing unmet needs through the development of optimal agents for secondary prevention by controlling lipid levels and repairing the damaged myocardium post myocardial infarction to prevent comorbidities such as heart failure.
- Overview of ACS, including epidemiology, etiology, pathophysiology, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment guidelines.
- Annualized ACS therapeutics market revenue, annual cost of therapy and treatment usage pattern data from 2015 and forecast for ten years to 2025.
