PharmaPoint Drug Evaluation report, Tysabri (Multiple Sclerosis) - Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, inflammatory neurological disorder characterized pathologically by demyelination, axonal transection and neurodegeneration within the central nervous system. With curative therapy still elusive, current disease management is dependent on life-long pharmacotherapy with disease-modifying therapies (DMT). The dominance of first-line injectable DMTs, including the interferon beta (IFNß) agents: Bayer's Betaseron/Betaferon (IFNß-1b), Biogen's Avonex (IFNß-1a) and Merck's Rebif (IFNß-1a), and Teva's Copaxone (glatiramer acetate), has been a salient feature of the MS therapeutics market. However, the competitive landscape is undergoing significant change with the emergence of oral therapies, several pipeline products with notable efficacies, and looming generics/biosimilars following the patent expiries of key branded products during the forecast period. In addition, the entry of new companies such as Sanofi/Genzyme and F. Hoffmann-La-Roche/Genentech will challenge the position of the established players in the MS marketplace.
Tysabri gained FDA approval in 2004 as a monotherapy for the treatment of RRMS to delay the accumulation of physical disability and reduce the frequency of clinical exacerbations. However, Tysabri was temporarily withdrawn from the market by the manufacturer in 2005 after several reported cases of fatal John Cunningham virus (JCV)-induced progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) in Tysabri-treated patients. Following a safety review, Tysabri was reintroduced into the global markets in 2006 under the special TOUCH restricted distribution program.
