NEW YORK, April 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Summary
Ovarian cancer is the sixth most common cancer in females and it also has the highest mortality rate of gynecological cancers. The five-year survival rate is approximately 45%, although the disease is ultimately fatal in the majority of patients due to a high rate of recurrence. Surgery is generally considered an effective treatment for localized tumors, however the management of recurrent and later-stage disease is largely reliant on cytotoxic chemotherapy regimens.
A highly active ovarian cancer pipeline contains an array of diverse molecule types and molecular targets, in contrast to the market. With the diversity in the pipeline, there is hope that innovative products can make it to market to provide patients with greater therapeutic options, while meeting unmet needs within ovarian cancer. There are 179 ovarian cancer pipeline products associated with a first-in-class molecular target representing 52% of the total pancreatic cancer pipeline products that have a disclosed molecular target. Such a diverse and innovative pipeline implies that approaches to ovarian cancer treatment are changing and first-in-class development is playing a significant role in this.
Chemotherapy based regimens continue to dominate the market, which has seen few new entrants over the past decade. Lynparza (olaparib) is a key new entrant; however it is only effective in a small patient subset.
- What survival benefits do current therapies provide?
- What are the current unmet needs that the pipeline needs to address?
The pipeline places increased focus on targeted therapies, including a large number of therapies targeting common oncogenic pathways and signaling intermediates such as PI3K/Akt.
- What potential do mAbs have in ovarian cancer treatment?
- Will pipeline diversity translate to clinically and commercially successful therapies?
- How are common target families, such as intracellular signal transduction associated with pathophysiology?
52% of pipeline products act on a first-in-class target, which is higher than the oncology and industry averages.
- Do first-in-class products show strong progression into the later stages?
- Why is the greatest number of first-in-class products seen in signal transduction?
First-in-class products differ substantially in their clinical potential, based on their alignment to disease causing pathways
- How well are first-in-class targets, such as Notch, aligned to known disease causing pathways?
- Which targets are specifically found in early-stage development?
- What is the industry-wide interest in these targets?
Co-development deals for first-in-class products are typically higher value than non-first-in-class counterparts.
- To what extent does first-in-class status influence deal value and phase?
- Can biologics command a greater deal value than other molecule types?
