Characterized by high incidence and long treatment durations, the breast cancer market represents a great commercial opportunity for drug developers. CDK4/6 inhibitors (Pfizer’s Ibrance, Novartis’s Kisqali, and Eli Lilly’s Verzenio/Verzenios/Virginio) are creating new dynamics in the metastatic HR-positive/HER2-negative treatment practice. In HER2-positive breast cancer, emerging HER2-targeting drugs in development are forecast to enter the market, while current HER2-targeting agents will see their sales change as a result of competition, label expansions, biosimilars entry, and new trials leading to changes in treatment guidelines. Furthermore, the approval of PARP inhibitors (AstraZeneca’s Lynparza and Pfizer’s Talzenna), PD-1-targeting agents (Roche/Genentech/Chugai’s Tecentriq), and PI3K inhibitors (Novartis’s Piqray), as well as anticipated entry of agents within these drug classes will provide more diverse and much needed treatment options, especially for triple-negative breast cancer.
