Schizophrenia | Disease Landscape & Forecast | G7 | 2021

The schizophrenia therapy market is very crowded, with multiple oral long-acting injectable (LAI) antipsychotic agents. 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 not specifically targeting schizophrenia subpopulations with high unmet need—including new oral atypical antipsychotics (e.g., Alkermes’s Lybalvi), new LAIs (e.g., Janssen’s paliperidone six-month depot, Teva’s TV-46000), and other agents with novel mechanisms of action (e.g., Sunovion / Sumitomo Dainippon Pharma’s ulotaront [SEP-363856], Karuna’s KarXT). Although the potential of therapies in development to treat the negative symptoms of schizophrenia or the cognitive impairment associated with schizophrenia (CIAS) remains to be seen in late-phase studies, some agents had promising results in mid-phase clinical studies and could earn blockbuster sales, such as Acadia Pharmaceuticals’ pimavanserin and Boehringer Ingelheim’s BI 425809.
