According to a new research report “Mitochondrial-Based Therapeutics Pipeline Analysis 2019, Clinical Trials and Results, Patents, Designations, Collaborations, and Other Developments” published by Pharma Proff, mitochondrial-based therapeutics pipeline currently exhibits a burgeoning pipeline with 27 drug candidates.
Mitochondrial-Based Therapeutics Pipeline Insights
Mitochondria generate adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP) through oxidative phosphorylation, and also plays a key role in apoptosis. Mitochondrial therapeutic development is focused on diseases, which are caused by mutations in mitochondrial deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) or in nuclear gene encoding mitochondrial protein.
Mitochondrial dysfunction contributes to the pathology of many common disorders, such as neurodegeneration, metabolic disease, heart failure, and ischemic-reperfusion injury. Therefore, several strategies are aimed to therapeutically restore mitochondrial function and hence, smaller number of agents have entered in clinical trials for the development of mitochondrial based therapeutics drugs. The report states that positive clinical trial results and technological advancements are the major factors driving the growth of the mitochondrial-based therapeutics pipeline.
Insights into Pipeline Segments
Most of the mitochondrial-based therapeutics drugs are administered through oral route of administration. The intravenous route is the second most common route of administration adopted for administering these drugs, as it is easy to use, improves medication adherence, and ensures high degree of versatility and control.
Increasing Strategic Developments are Expected to Contribute to the Growth of the Mitochondrial-Based Therapeutics Pipeline
Various companies are investing in the development of mitochondrial-based therapeutics, and also aim to expand their product portfolio in near future. For instance, in August 2019, Zogenix Inc. acquired Modis Therapeutics Inc. This acquisition aimed to advance Zogenix’s rare disease portfolio of drugs. Through this acquisition, Zogenix Inc. gained license to develop and commercialize drug candidate, MT1621, which is an investigational deoxynucleoside substrate enhancement therapy, for the treatment of mtDNA depletion disorder.
Surge in the Number of Designations Granted Behold the Growth of the Mitochondrial-Based Therapeutics Pipeline
It has been observed that regulatory bodies are increasingly granting designations to mitochondrial-based therapeutics drugs, in order to pace up the development process of clinical trials. For instance, Modis Therapeutics Inc.’s drug candidate, MT1621, received Breakthrough Therapy Designation by the USFDA in 2019; Orphan Drug Designation by the USFDA and EMA; and PRIority Medicines (PRIME) designation by EMA in 2018, for the treatment of TK2 deficiency.
