Transplantation Drug Development Pipeline Review, 2017
This report provides an overview of the transplantation pipeline landscape, specifically covering drugs used to prevent and treat organ rejection and graftversushost disease. The report provides comprehensive information on the therapeutics under development and key players involved in therapeutic development for graftversushost disease GVHD, and the rejection of bone, liver, kidney, lung and heart transplants.
Transplant rejection is a complication that can occur after the replacement of a defective host organ with a foreign donor organ. General risks associated with transplantation are bleeding, infection, clots, and cardiovascular disorders. Additionally, following a transplant, the immune system may consider the transplanted heart as foreign and mount a response against it, especially if the antigens expressed by the tissues in each do not match. Generally, immunosuppressive drugs are administered simultaneously with the transplant in order to minimize this risk. These immunosuppressive drugs prevent the body from either identifying or attacking the foreign organ via various immune responses thus blocking organ rejection and facilitating a successful transplant.
The size of these pipelines ranges from seven products in heart transplantation to 121 in bone marrow transplantation. A wide range of targets, including integrins, chemokine receptors, protein kinases and cadherins are being developed, with no particular class of target predominating in terms of pipeline volume within each indication. However, there is a clear trend towards immune system molecular targets being studied, reflecting the underlying immunebased pathophysiology of these indications.
