Market Report, "Avonex (Multiple Sclerosis) - Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022", published.

[ClickPress, Wed May 01 2013] GlobalData has released its new PharmaPoint Drug Evaluation report, "Avonex (Multiple Sclerosis) - Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022". Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, inflammatory neurological disorder characterized pathologically by demyelination, axonal transection and neurodegeneration within the central nervous system. With curative therapy still elusive, current disease management is dependent on life-long pharmacotherapy with disease-modifying therapies (DMT). The dominance of first-line injectable DMTs, including the interferon beta (IFNB) agents: Bayer's Betaseron/Betaferon (IFNB-1b), Biogen's Avonex (IFNB-1a) and Merck's Rebif (IFNB-1a), and Teva's Copaxone (glatiramer acetate), has been a salient feature of the MS therapeutics market. However, the competitive landscape is undergoing significant change with the emergence of oral therapies, several pipeline products with notable efficacies, and looming generics/biosimilars following the patent expiries of key branded products during the forecast period. In addition, the entry of new companies such as Sanofi/Genzyme and F. Hoffmann-La-Roche/Genentech will challenge the position of the established players in the MS marketplace.

Biogen Idec's Avonex (interferon beta-1a) is an IM-administered immunomodulatory agent indicated for the first-line treatment of RRMS and for individuals presenting with CIS. Avonex was approved by the FDA in 1996 and received Orphan Drug status, giving it market exclusivity for seven years in the US until 2003. Despite the Orphan Drug status of Betaseron that was still in effect at the time, Avonex was granted marketing approval because it was proven to be a different formulation of IFNB to Betaseron.
