PharmaPoint: Epilepsy - Global Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022 - Event-Driven Update


Epilepsy is a brain disorder characterized by spontaneously occurring and recurrent seizures. The market is heavily driven by the sales of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) targeted at seizure reduction. The AED market is currently dominated by UCBs Keppra and GlaxoSmithKlines Lamictal. Although both drugs have experienced significant generic erosion, they form the mainstay of epilepsy treatment in the nine markets and will continue to have significant market share during the forecast period. Other key drugs include older generation AEDs such as Pfizers Dilantin, Abbotts Depakote, and Novartis Tegretol and Trileptal which still have significant usage due to their longevity in the market. However, the AED dominance landscape will continue to shift towards newer generation drugs particularly following the recent market entry of GlaxoSmithKlines Trobalt/Potiga and Eisais Fycompa which both offer first-in-class mechanisms of action.


Key Questions Answered

- Even with more than 20 AEDs on the market, there are still ~20% refractory patients. Additional unmet needs still exists in terms of safety and efficacy. Will the drugs under development fulfil the unmet needs of the epilepsy market?
- Several brands of AEDs are due for patent expiry. How will the patent expiries impact the epilepsy therapeutics market?
- The developmental pipeline consists of several novel drugs. Which of these drugs will attain high sales revenues during 2012-2022?
