Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck | Disease Landscape & Forecast | G7 | 2022

The treatment landscape for squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN) witnessed a major change in 2019 with the approval of Merck & Co.’s Keytruda for untreated recurrent or metastatic SCCHN. For nearly a decade, the EGFR inhibitor Erbitux (Eli Lilly / Merck KGaA) was the cornerstone in the treatment algorithm. Immune checkpoint inhibitors (e.g., Keytruda, Bristol Myers Squibb / Ono Pharmaceutical’s Opdivo) are also prescribed in later lines, where competition is fierce. Although SCCHN has historically been a complex challenge for drug developers, many immuno-oncology treatment approaches and other drug classes are in the late-phase pipeline for both metastatic and early-stage settings. Several agents are positioned to treat the untapped and lucrative locoregionally advanced SCCHN, fueling market growth over the 2021-2031 forecast period.

Questions answered

  • What is the current treatment algorithm for locoregionally advanced and recurrent or metastatic SCCHN in the major pharmaceutical markets? What are interviewed experts’ views on current and emerging late-phase therapies?
  • How large are the clinically and commercially relevant drug-treatable SCCHN populations, and how will drug-treatment rates change over the 2021-2031 forecast period?
  • What market and patient share can agents in late-phase development for SCCHN expect to secure?
  • What are the key drivers of and constraints on the SCCHN therapy market, and how will these factors change over the 10-year forecast period?
