According to a new research report “Myasthenia Gravis (MG) Therapeutics – Pipeline Analysis 2019, Clinical Trials and Results, Patents, Designations, Collaborations, and Other Developments” published by Pharma Proff, MG therapeutics currently exhibits a proliferating pipeline with 15+ therapeutic candidates.
MG Therapeutics Pipeline Insights
MG is a neuromuscular disorder, which weakens muscles by decreasing number of acetylcholine receptors at the neuromuscular junction. The disease becomes prominent during adulthood; but symptoms can be observed at any age. People suffering from MG show weakness and drooping of the eyelids, resulting in double vision and excessive fatigue caused after physical work. The disease can be detected by physical examination and diagnostic imaging tests.
Soliris by Alexion Pharmaceuticals Inc. is the only U.S. Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) approved therapeutic drug for the treatment of MG.
Insights into Pipeline Segments
According to the research findings, majority of pipeline drug candidates are being developed for intravenous route of administration. In this route of administration, entire administered dose reaches the systemic circulation immediately, which increases the bioavailability of drug. Administration of therapeutics for MG through intravenous route has shown promising results in clinical studies.
Positive Clinical Results are Expected to Drive the MG Therapeutics Pipeline
Companies that are involved in developing therapeutics for MG have shown positive clinical results in various phases of drug development. For instance, in December 2018, Ra Pharmaceuticals Inc. announced positive data of phase II trial of zilucoplan for the treatment of patients with MG. The results of the study concluded that treatment with zilucoplan has a favorable safety and tolerability profile, consistent with previously-completed phase I and phase II studies. The majority of adverse events (AEs) reported were mild and not considered by investigators to be related to study drug. There were no serious AEs observed related to treatment with zilucoplan.
