Cervical Dystonia – Executive Insights – Cervical Dystonia | Executive Insights | US/EU5/China

Cervical dystonia (CD), is a rare neurological disorder that mostly affects middle-aged adults, with an average age of symptom onset of 50 years. Given the rarity of the condition and symptomatic similarities with other neurological conditions, CD is often misdiagnosed, thereby delaying appropriate treatment. The CD market is generally well served by several marketed botulinum toxins ([BoNTs]; e.g., AbbVie / Allergan’s Botox), which comprise the current standard of care in CD treatment in the United States, EU5, and China. Owing to the clinical benefits provided by entrenched BoNTs, the CD pipeline is relatively sparse and lacks variation / novelty but does portend the potential launch of biosimilars in future. For current and emerging players in this space, understanding the drivers, limiters, unmet needs, and remaining opportunities in this competitive market will be critical.
