Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a catastrophic event, often as a result of trauma, that typically results in long-lasting motor, sensory, and/or autonomic deficits. The nature of such deficits is dependent on the level of the spinal cord at which the injury occurs and the severity of damage to the cord at that level. Treatment involves nonpharmacological and pharmacological management of associated complications but no current therapy can restore function. The SCI pipeline consists of regenerative / reparative treatments, including several stem cell therapies, monoclonal antibodies against an axonal guidance molecule (AbbVie’s elezanumab, Mitsubishi Tanabe’s MT-3921), and an implantable scaffold that can facilitate axonal regrowth (InVivo Therapeutics’ Neuro-Spinal Scaffold). If these treatments launch, they have notable commercial potential because of the immense unmet need in this indication.
Executive Insights provides indication-specific market intelligence with world-class epidemiology, keen insight into current treatment paradigms, biotherapeutic pipelines, key clinical unmet needs, and competitive landscapes, supported by primary and secondary research.
