OpportunityAnalyzer: Huntingtons Disease - Opportunity Analysis and Forecast to 2024

Press Release   •   Oct 26, 2016 08:03 EDT has recently announced the addition of a market study “ OpportunityAnalyzer: Huntingtons Disease - Opportunity Analysis and Forecast to 2024 ”, is a comparative analysis of the global market.

OpportunityAnalyzer: Huntingtons Disease - Opportunity Analysis and Forecast to 2024


Huntingtons Disease (HD) is a rare, autosomal-dominant, neurodegenerative disorder, characterized by impaired motor control, cognitive dysfunction, behavioral changes, and mood disorders. Approved treatments for HD across the 7MM are extremely limited, consisting of only two symptomatic treatments, tetrabenazine and tiapride, which are both approved for the treatment of HD-associated chorea. Other treatment options contributing to the HD market are off-label symptomatic drugs, many of which are widely genericized throughout the 7MM. Four late-stage pipeline drugs, two symptomatic treatments (SD-809 and pridopidine) and two potential DMDs (RP103 and PBT2) are expected to launch in the US and 5EU markets during the forecast period, and will be a source of significant growth in the HD market. It is anticipated that SD-809 and pridopidine will also launch in Japan within the forecast period.


Key Questions Answered

- The HD market has been dominated by tetrabenazine and tiapride (approved in Germany, Italy, and Spain; off-label in France and Japan) for many years, with little approved therapeutic options available in the 7MM. New classes of drugs are anticipated to reach the market within the forecast period. How will these change the market overall during the forecast period? Will tetrabenazine maintain market dominance in 2024?

- The current late stage HD pipeline is varied, with first-in-class drugs in development with innovative modes of action. Which of these will have the biggest impact on the market? What strategies are developers undertaking to penetrate this chronically underserved market? Will these fulfil any unmet needs?

Key Findings

- The main driver of growth in the HD market will be the introduction of premium-priced disease-modifying drugs and improved symptomatic therapies over the forecast period. The launch of these treatments will act as a stimulant for growth in this chronically underserved market.

- Significant barriers to growth in the HD market will be the high cost of novel treatments and potential issues surrounding reimbursement, which will limit the use of more expensive drugs. Patients who have an acceptable level of symptomatic control with currently marketed drugs could result in limited treatment costs for HD.
