The maturing yet highly lucrative market for multiple sclerosis (MS) disease-modifying therapies (DMTs) will continue to fragment as new entrants further shift the complicated treatment algorithm. Roche / Genentech’s Ocrevus, Merck Serono’s Mavenclad, and a growing array of next-generation compounds from Novartis, Celgene, Actelion/Janssen, Biogen, Genmab, and TG Therapeutics will intensify competition in the saturated relapsing MS market. Meanwhile, Ocrevus continues to transform treatment in the underserved PP-MS population, and developers like MediciNova (with its intriguing candidate ibudilast) and Biogen (opicinumab) have renewed their focus on developing neuroprotective or reparative treatments in MS—now the “next frontier” in a market replete with reliable anti-inflammatory options. Separately, the looming entry of oral generics will introduce a new variable in this high-cost market as reimbursement authorities race to rein in healthcare costs. Understanding these intersecting forces will be key to the success of current and future players in this evolving market.

Questions Answered:

  • What impact will Ocrevus and ibudilast have in the progressive MS market?
  • What clinical roles will entrenched platform injectables, current and next-generation orals, and MAbs play in the evolving MS treatment algorithm?
  • How will generic competition shape the MS market?
