LAS VEGAS, Jan. 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The surge in the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) market can be attributed to a vast pipeline, initiation of HEALEY ALS platform trials, mutation-specific treatment development in the pipeline, a need for a curative treatment option, increase in the ALS prevalence, effective drug approvals in the past 3-4 years, improvisations in market regulatory guidelines, growing awareness about the disease, along with geographical expansions and meaningful collaborations in the ALS pharma industry.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Market report offers detailed coverage of the disease, its available treatment options, patient pool, and diagnostic modalities. The report lays down the comprehensive insights into market outlook, upcoming pipeline therapies, and unmet needs along with the major collaboration and funding opportunities in the ALS market landscape.

Some of the highlights of the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis market report:

  • Radicava (edaravone) is the first treatment to receive US FDA approval in more than 20 years in the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis market. Once launched in oral suspension formulation, the drug is expected to achieve the highest patient share. 
  • Key pipeline therapies anticipated to enter the ALS market are ODM-109 (Orion Pharma), Reldesemtiv (Cytokinetics), Arimoclomol (Orphazyme), Trehalose (Seelos Therapeutics), Verdiperstat (Biohaven Pharmaceutical), IC14 (Implicit Bioscience), BIIB067 (Tofersen; Biogen) and CNM-Au8 (Clene Nanomedicine), AMX0035 (AMYLYX), PrimeC (Neurosense therapeutics), IPL344 (Immunity Pharma), MediciNova (MN166) among several others. 
  • Currently, Tofersen is the only drug facing no competition in the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis market as it is specifically targeting SOD1 mutation. Thus, it is anticipated to acquire the highest ALS market share.
  • Verdiperstat is the first therapy undergoing clinical trials as multiple treatments for ALS patients at once. Thus, it will attract higher patient participation while reducing the overall research cost burden of the company. 
  • Trehalose has been a recent addition to the HEALEY ALS platform trial in December 2020. Seelos has initiated a registration Phase II/III trial for evaluation of Trehalose in ALS patients
  • Emerging therapies such as Medicinova’s Ibudiblast and AB science’s Masitinib are expected to get launched in combination with the current standard of care (SOC), which mainly includes Riluzole and Radicava

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a group of progressive, rare neurological diseases, which are a result of gradual deterioration and death of motor neurons. Over time the muscles weaken, start to twitch (called fasciculations), and waste away (atrophy), eventually, leading the brain to lose its ability to initiate and control voluntary movement. 

ALS can be either sporadic or genetic. The sporadic type is the most common and can affect anyone. The genetic or familial type is rarer. On the basis of mutation, ALS patients can exhibit mutations such as C9ORF72, SOD1, along with others including TARDBP, FUS, OPTN, ANG, etc., and non-mutated/unidentified mutations. The diagnosed Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis prevalent cases in the 7MM are estimated to be 48,112 in 2020, which is further expected to increase by 2030. 

The Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis epidemiology section of the report proffers insights into the historical and current Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) patient pool and forecasted trends for 7MM. ALS report provides historical as well as forecasted epidemiology segmentation for the study period 2017-30: 

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Prevalent Population
  • Diagnosed Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Prevalent Population
  • Gender-Specific Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Distribution
  • Age-specific Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Distribution 
  • Type-specific Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Distribution 
  • Mutation-Specific Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Distribution 
  • Site of Onset of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis in Population in numbers (N)

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Therapeutic Market Landscape

The Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis treatment landscape includes multidisciplinary care, such as physical therapy, speech therapy, dietary counselling, heat or whirlpool therapy and others. Approved drugs in the ALS market comprises Riluzole, Nuedexta, Radicava, and Tiglutik. Rilutek (Riluzole; Covis Pharmaceuticals) is indicated for the treatment of ALS and the mechanism by which riluzole exerts its therapeutic effects in patients with ALS is still unknown. Another approved drug Tiglutik (riluzole), an oral suspension, is the first and only easy-to-swallow thickened riluzole liquid for ALS and is administered twice daily via an oral syringe. On the other hand, Exservan is an oral Riluzole film used to treat ALS. Nuedexta is available as a combination drug containing dextromethorphan hydrobromide and quinidine sulfate indicated for the treatment of pseudobulbar affect. Radicava (Edaravone; Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma) is another treatment option for the ALS. During clinical trials, it has shown to decrease the decline of the physical functions, however, it is capable of causing adverse effects owing to its constituent sodium bisulfite.

Medications are also be given to manage symptoms of ALS, including pain, muscle cramps, stiffness, excess saliva and phlegm, and the pseudobulbar affect (involuntary or uncontrollable episodes of crying and/or laughing, or other emotional displays). Drugs also are available to help individuals with pain, depression, sleep disturbances, and constipation. There also exists a variety of tools and mechanical devices such as non-invasive ventilation (NIV) and mechanical ventilation for breathing support to help with ALS such as splints, reach extenders, and grab-bars. 

However, the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis therapeutic market lacks a curative approach that can halt or reverse the progression of the disease. Even though Radicava can effectively delay physical disability in ALS patients, however, its high pricing may pose a threat to the overall patient compliance of the drug.  Furthermore, the lack of epidemiological data of the disease in the pediatric population hinders the development of novel therapies focused on children below 18 years of age. A poor understanding of the mutations, which form a major cause of the ALS, dims down the ongoing speed of the development of the pipeline therapies. Thus, there is a need for better research opportunities in the domain to facilitate a better understanding of the disease and development of potential novel therapies.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Market Forecast

DelveInsight estimates that approval of novel Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis pipeline therapies is expected to give the ALS market size a much-needed boost in the foreseeable future. Although, most of the therapies are going to get commercialized in combination with Riluzole and Radicava. In addition to this, other emerging therapies are under trials while the patient is already following their treatment regimen of Riluzole.  Thus, it can be said that the pipeline therapies will be sharing the market share with the available market therapies. 

Majority of emerging drugs are focusing on delaying the disease progression, and are not curative. Thus, the ALS market presents immense opportunities for pharmaceutical companies to explore and exploit their ground-breaking therapies and occupy the maximum potential. Here, gene and enzyme replacement therapies, which promise to cure the disease completely, automatically get the upper hand here. Several pharmaceutical companies are investigating novel approaches and joining hands with others to expedite the development of ALS treatment options. Recently, Catalent and BrainStorm entered into an agreement to manufacture NurOwn. Cytokinetics and Astellas entered into the Fast Skeletal Regulatory Activator Agreement, allowing Cytokinetics to exercise exclusive control over the future development and commercialization of reldesemtiv and other FSRA compounds and products. Besides agreements, acquisition spree in the ALS market is quite dominant as well. UCB acquired Ra Pharmaceuticals and got zilucoplan, which is currently in phase III, to its vast portfolio. Similarly, Novus Therapeutics completed the acquisition of Anelixis Therapeutics, which is conducting a phase II clinical trial of AT-1501 for ALS.

Although several clinical trials are ongoing, however, an unsettling thing that might be a snag in the steady growth of the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis market is the quite unpropitious success rate of the clinical trials. The management of ALS is extremely expensive. Expensive drugs like Radicava pose a burden for ALS patients as not everyone can get access to the drug due to its high cost. Thus, the cost-effectiveness of the upcoming therapies is also expected to play a major part in their approval.
