Pulmonary Hypertension – Landscape & Forecast – Disease Landscape & Forecast

Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a devastating disease with high levels of morbidity and mortality and no cure. Despite the disease’s rarity, the potential commercial opportunities for drugs approved for PH are considerable, driven by premium pricing and the propensity for polypharmacy. Although this market has become congested, commercial interest in PH remains high. The need for more-efficacious and disease-modifying agents fuels this attention, along with the unserved populations lacking approved treatments.

Questions answered

  • Novel agents such as United Therapeutics’ ralinepag, Merck & Co.’s sotatercept, Liquidia’s Yutrepia, and United Therapeutics / MannKind’s Tyvaso DPI are in late-phase development for PH. What do interviewed thought leaders say about the advantages and disadvantages of these therapies? How will the launch of these agents affect prescribing decisions?
  • Generic formulations of several key branded therapies have launched in recent years. How have these launches impacted prescribing patterns? What effect has generic launches had on entrenched and emerging branded therapies?
  • The treatment of PH World Health Organization groups 2, 3, and 5 is associated with substantial unmet need. What are the other key unmet needs in PH treatment? How likely are these unmet needs to be fulfilled during the forecast period?
  • Patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension are usually prescribed PDE-5 inhibitors and/or ERAs as first-line therapy. What are the treatment guidelines for later lines of therapy? How does treatment vary between countries / geographical regions?
