CD20 Monoclonal Antibodies: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, CA (Vocus) July 8, 2010
The antibody therapeutics sector is presently in a dynamic state of growth in the global pharmaceutical industry. In recent years, antibody therapeutics has transformed the treatment of inflammatory diseases and cancer. The advent of Rituximab in 1997 not only validated the CD20-targeting phenomenon in improving overall response and providing benefits in the treatment of B-cell malignancies, but also revolutionized the area of cancer treatment.
Several patients worldwide continue to benefit from Rituxan. However, a significant number of patients also exist who have developed resistance or are refractory to the drug. In addition, there are issues regarding the adverse events pertaining to infusion of the drug. As a result, the need for new and more effective drugs continue to exist. Several companies have, ever since, embarked on the discovery and development of novel CD20 mAbs that paved way for the discovery of new drugs with novel action mechanisms for more efficient treatment of these B-cell malignancies. In addition to huge unmet medical needs, growth in the CD-20 market would be spurred by rising incidence and prevalence of conditions such as non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, Rheumatoid arthritis and chronic lymphocytic leukemia, which represent the major target indications for CD20 monoclonal antibodies.
