Research and Markets: DRG Insights: Multiple Sclerosis (G7) - Novel Therapies Will Drive Growth of the MS Market Through to 2017

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/kq9846/drg_insights) has announced the addition of Decision Resources, Inc's new report "DRG Insights: Multiple Sclerosis (G7)" to their offering.

DRG Insights takes the most relevant information and insights from across our portfolio for BioPharma and Med-Tech products and delivers the insight heavy perspective that you need to generate better ideas and deliver more successful campaigns and initiatives. Following the 2010 launch of Novartis/Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma's fingolimod (Gilenya/Imusera), the market for disease-modifying multiple sclerosis (MS) therapies has begun a dramatic transformation.

A broad array of new and promising anti-inflammatory treatments is rapidly approaching launch, including alternative oral agents with significant potential for early-line use and new parenteral therapies that could redefine efficacy. Novel therapies will drive growth of the MS market through 2017, but the gains will be tempered over the near term by a conservative prescriber base and lingering favoritism for time-tested current agents.

Moreover, in the next ten years, the advent of generics competition for several players will represent a key inflection point in the seemingly price-insensitive specialty MS market. All new agents are expected to be approved to treat relapsing forms of MS; ample opportunity will remain for therapies to treat the underserved population of patients who suffer progressive forms of MS.
