Hot therapy areas
The 2019 list includes agents (six out of seven) targeting diseases characterized by genetic disorder and/or excessive immune response (including autoimmunity). The ability to manipulate underlying mechanisms of disease states attests to the astonishing progress of medical and scientific knowledge in recent decades.
The tides are changing
Companies are investing more in rare diseases, unmet needs, and conditions with current treatments hampered by safety, efficacy or other issues. This year’s line-up of predicted blockbusters features a high proportion of therapies addressing such targets.
