Ebola, an orphan disease, has affected more than 20,000 people in the African countries as of now. Recurring outbreaks of Ebola in under developed region and lack of effective therapies are factors that drive the need for Ebola drugs and vaccines. The perennial outbreak of Ebola has given rise to a renewed interest among healthcare authorities in finding effective therapies. To control the EVD, the government authorities are supplying funds to pharmaceutical companies for research and development of EVD drugs and vaccines. As an example, government of the United States, through the FDA, has granted “Fast Track” designation to the Tekmira’s TKM Ebola drug and has funded $140 million through the Department of defense, United States, for R&D on EVD. According to AMR analyst, Roshan Deshmukh, “The prime focus of the companies is to commercialize the drugs and vaccines for EVD disease. The government authorities across the developed regions are extending support for the commercialization of these drugs by providing funds and floating favorable policies”.

Normal symptoms such as simple viral fever are initially observed in patients infected with EVD’s; however, at later stages, the consequences of these symptoms become deadly and leave no space for recovery. In United States, EVD is termed as Quarantinable Communicable Diseases under section 361(b) of the Public Health Service Act. This report tracks such key regulatory road maps and anticipated regulations in future by respective administrations. The report also focuses on the grass root ethical implications faced by players during clinical trials and other commercial activities.

Developed economies are interested in formulating therapeutics that can significantly minimize threats from Ebola virus. Companies operating in this market are currently focusing on clinical trials as a key strategy. The commercialization of Ebola therapeutics is the prime focus of healthcare systems, as there are no specific medications available in the market. Companies profiled in the report are Tekmira Pharmaceuticals, BioCryst Pharmaceutical Inc., Serepata Therapeutics, NewLink Genetics Corp and Mapp Biopharmaceutical.

RNA Therapeutics Market is Expected to Reach $1.2 Billion, Globally, by 2020 – Allied Market Research

Posted on Updated on

A new report by Allied Market Research, titled “RNA Therapeutics Market (technology, applications, end user and geography) – Industry Analysis and Forecast, 2013 – 2020″, suggests that the RNA Based Therapeutics Market would reach $1.2 billion by 2020 registering a CAGR of 28.4% during 2014 – 2020. Due to its ability to render targeted solutions for chronic diseases such as cancer, AIDS, rare genetic disorders, and certain cardiovascular conditions, RNA based therapeutics is expected to significantly impact the global pharmaceutical industry.

Pharmaceutical companies have identified the RNA therapeutics for variety of chronic diseases and are also exploring the potential of RNA technology for diagnostic purposes. The RNA based therapeutics market, in the near future is likely to witness a substantial level of momentum due to government funding and programs aimed at commercialization of these drugs. The government of United States, through its National Institute of Health (NIH), provides funds for RNA therapeutics research, thus assist in propelling the growth of this market. To boost the research activities the U.S. FDA is providing fast track designation to the RNA products, which are in the pipeline.

The study suggests that the enabled technologies such as RNA interference technology (RNAi) and RNA antisense technology will dominate the market with RNAi technology getting interest from most of the participants. The development pipeline suggests that oncology segment will emerge as the largest application segment. This is largely due to the high prevalence of such diseases and limited efficiency of available therapeutics in treating such diseases. Research and therapeutics are the two major end-use segments for RNA therapeutics market. North America currently commands the lion’s share of the market as most of the research and development activity is concentrated in this region. However, Asia Pacific and other emerging regions will gradually catch-up over the forecast period.

The Key companies in this space are Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Benitec Biopharma Limited, Cenix BioScience GmbH, Dicerna Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Genzyme Corporation, ISIS pharmaceuticals Inc., Quark Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Silence Therapeutics PLC, and Tekmira Pharmaceuticals Corp. These organizations have raised funds from private and public sectors to bear the high cost of RNA therapeutics research. Though the clinical results behind RNA based therapeutics are compelling, the Pharma and biotech companies are still working to identify opportunistic areas to grow. It is most likely that the RNA therapeutic companies would successfully tackle the drug delivery issue, which is the major hurdle in commercialization of this therapeutics and at the same time would reap benefits.
