Schizophrenia – Landscape & Forecast – Disease Landscape & Forecast

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 / Otsuka’s ulotaront [SEP-363856], Karuna Therapeutics’ 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.
