Market Outlook

The availability of premium-priced branded agents prescribed in doublet, triplet, and quadruplet regimens, particularly Darzalex-based therapies, has had an impressive impact on the multiple myeloma treatment landscape. While Bristol-Myers Squibb’s Revlimid and Janssen / Takeda Pharmaceutical’s Velcade remain the cornerstones of multiple myeloma therapy, emerging agents such as Bristol Myers Squibb / Bluebird bio’s ide-cel, Sanofi / ImmunoGen’s Sarclisa, and Oncopeptide’s Ygalo are pursuing initial approvals, while GlaxoSmithKline’s BLENREP / belantamab mafodotin recently received its approval. Immense clinical and commercial potential still remains in multiple myeloma for therapies with improved efficacy and novel mechanisms of action, that can fulfill a need in underserved patient segments such as smoldering multiple myeloma.
