Osteoarthritic (OA) pain is the second largest segment of the overall chronic pain market, affecting more than 90 million patients in the G7. The OA pain market represents a lucrative opportunity for drug developers given the persistent unmet need for more effective and safe therapies, particularly agents with a novel and distinct mechanism of action that strongly correlates with the nature of this type of pain. OA pain is predominantly treated with cost-effective generic nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and opioid analgesics, although branded agents such as costly abuse-deterrent reformulations of opioid analgesics, new combinations of existing NSAIDs that attempt to mitigate side effects, and intra-articular injections are also frequently prescribed in later lines of therapy. Emerging therapies, such as biological drugs from Pfizer/Eli Lilly and Regeneron/Teva/Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma targeting nerve growth factor (NGF), and the increasing number of patients diagnosed with OA pain due to lifestyle influences will be key drivers for growth through 2028.

Questions Answered:

  • How do interviewed experts perceive the OA pain marketplace to be changing given the emphasis on the risk of abuse/misuse with opioid analgesics?
  • What effect will the recent launches of new analgesics such as Flexion Therapeutics’ Zilretta and Iroko’s Vivlodex continue to have on the treatment paradigm?
  • What will the impact of a new drug class, the anti-NGF biologics, be on the treatment landscape given their demonstrably robust efficacy tempered by lingering concerns about safety issues seen in clinical trials?

Product Description:

Disease Landscape & Forecast provides comprehensive market intelligence with world-class epidemiology, keen insight into current treatment paradigms, in-depth pipeline assessments, and drug forecasts supported by detailed primary and secondary research.
