Aricept (Alzheimer's Disease) - Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022

Aricept (Alzheimer's Disease) - Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022


GlobalData has released its new PharmaPoint Drug Evaluation report, "Aricept (Alzheimer's Disease) - Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022". There are no long-term effective therapies for Alzheimer's Disease (AD), so this remains at the top of the list for unmet needs. While physicians agree that symptomatic therapies are relatively safe and effective, these therapies are still lacking because of they cannot maintain their effects and lack mechanisms that alter the course of the disease.

Eisai's Aricept (donepezil hydrochloride) is a piperidine derivative that acts centrally as a reversible AChEI. Aricept is approved at the strengths of 5, 10, and 23mg and is indicated for the treatment of mild to severe Alzheimer's dementia. As a member of the AChEI class, donepezil can only provide symptomatic relief and cannot modify the underlying disease progression.


- Overview of AD, including epidemiology, etiology, symptoms, diagnosis, pathology and treatment guidelines as well as an overview on the competitive landscape.
- Detailed information on Aricept including product description, safety and efficacy profiles as well as a SWOT analysis.
- Sales forecast for Aricept for the top nine countries from 2012 to 2022.
- Sales information covered for the US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK, Japan, China and India.
