Hepatitis Drug Development Pipeline Review, 2017
This report provides an overview of the hepatitis pipeline landscape. The report provides comprehensive information on the therapeutics under development and key players involved in therapeutic development for hepatitis A, B, C and D, and features dormant and discontinued projects.
Hepatitis is a contagious viral infection affecting the liver, which may spread on contact with infected blood. It may be a mild condition or may extend over a longer span of time leading to various complications. The characteristic symptoms include abdominal pain, fatigue, fever, jaundice, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting. The predisposing factors of hepatitis typically include dialysis, organ transplant and blood transfusion and the offspring of an infected mother also has high chances of contracting the disease.
Owing to differences in prevalence, hepatitis A and D have far smaller pipelines than hepatitis B and C; the size of these pipelines ranges from seven products in hepatitis A to 182 in hepatitis B and 199 in hepatitis C. Many of the companies who are actively fielding products in the larger two hepatitis subtypes are simultaneously developing products for both. While in hepatitis A, B and D, viral surface antigens and interferons are commonly targeted, a far wider range of proteins, including nonstructural proteins, are the most common targets in hepatitis C.
Which companies are the most active within the pipeline for hepatitis therapeutics?
Which pharmaceutical approaches are the most prominent at each stage of the pipeline and within each indication?
