Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis – Landscape & Forecast – Disease Landscape & Forecast

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressively debilitating disorder of the central nervous system characterized by motor neuron degeneration. ALS causes progressive weakness and atrophy of the muscles and loss of voluntary functions, including breathing, swallowing, use of limbs, and, eventually, death. Two treatments are approved for ALS in the markets under study—Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma’s Radicava (edaravone) and riluzole (Sanofi’s Rilutek, other brands, generics)—but pressing unmet need remains. Although the ALS pipeline comprises diverse programs designed to be neuroprotective, enhance respiratory function, or restore lost neurons in the spinal cord, clinical success in ALS has historically been a formidable challenge. Thus, substantial clinical and commercial opportunity awaits developers that can develop a safe, effective therapy for this crippling disease.

QUESTIONS ANSWERED

  • What role do riluzole and, in the United States, Radicava play in the treatment of ALS patients? What are the key advantages and disadvantages of these products?
  • How will the size of the drug-treated ALS population change through 2031?
  • What are the key unmet needs in the treatment of ALS?
  • About which emerging therapies are ALS experts most intrigued or optimistic? How would new therapies influence the management of ALS patients?
  • Which emerging therapies for ALS are likely to launch by 2031? What commercial impact will they have on the market?
