Schizophrenia | Disease Landscape and Forecast | G7 | 2018

The schizophrenia market is highly crowded given the presence of numerous antipsychotic therapies including the continued genericization of key oral therapies, the availability of newer oral atypical antipsychotics (e.g., Otsuka/Lundbeck’s Rexulti and Allergan/Gedeon Richter/Recordati’s Vraylar/Reagila), and the intensifying competition among long-acting injectables (LAIs). Indeed, to gain a foothold in the market, differentiation from already established therapies is a primary requirement for the late-phase and recently approved therapies—including new atypical antipsychotics (e.g., Alkermes’s ALKS-3831), new LAIs (e.g., Indivior’s Perseris, Janssen’s paliperidone six-month depot), and others (Intra-Cellular Therapies’ lumateperone, Minerva Neurosciences’ roluperidone, and Acadia Pharmaceuticals’ pimavanserin). Meanwhile, the potential of early- to mid-phase therapies for negative symptoms and cognitive impairment associated with schizophrenia, which are symptoms on which drug developers are increasingly focusing, remains to be seen.
