Malignant Melanoma – Landscape & Forecast – Disease Landscape & Forecast

The introduction of the immune checkpoint inhibitors Keytruda (Merck & Co.), Opdivo ± Yervoy (Bristol Myers Squibb), and Tecentriq (Roche / Genentech; U.S. only), as well as BRAF/MEK inhibitor combinations such as Roche / Genentech’s Zelboraf plus Cotellic, Novartis’s Tafinlar plus Mekinist, and Pfizer / Array BioPharma’s Braftovi plus Mektovi, has significantly changed the treatment landscape for malignant melanoma in both the resectable and metastatic settings. Nonetheless, opportunities remain for novel agents specifically targeting the underrepresented BRAF wild-type unresectable or metastatic population. With the expected introduction of novel agents and combination regimens, the malignant melanoma treatment paradigm will continue to evolve.

Questions answered:

  • How large are the clinically and commercially relevant malignant melanoma drug-treatable populations? Will drug treatment rates increase over the forecast period?
  • What is the current treatment landscape in malignant melanoma? Which currently approved drugs are the most prescribed and why?
  • Which drugs in late-phase development are poised to change the treatment of malignant melanoma and how? What sales / uptake could these drugs secure in the malignant melanoma market?
  • What are the key drivers of / constraints in the malignant melanoma therapy market, and how will the market evolve over the forecast period?
