Frontier Pharma: Rheumatoid Arthritis - Identifying and Commercializing First-in-Class Innovation

LONDON, Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

Frontier Pharma: Rheumatoid Arthritis - Identifying and Commercializing First-in-Class Innovation


Frontier Pharma: Rheumatoid Arthritis - Identifying and Commercializing First-in-Class Innovation

Summary

GBI Research has released a new pharmaceutical report, "Frontier Pharma: Rheumatoid Arthritis - Identifying and Commercializing First-in-Class Innovation". This highly competitive market is saturated with multiple targeted monoclonal Antibody (mAb) therapies and small molecules, yet more of these treatments are expected to enter the market over the next few years. Despite this, the current developmental pipeline is highly innovative beyond these me-too products and incremental innovations and promises a number of first-in-class products across all stages. These new developments are driven by improvements in the understanding of signaling pathways and underlying disease mechanisms of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). These highly innovative products are expected to increase the diversity of available products, in terms of mechanism of action over the coming decade and are likely to have a significant impact on the dynamics of the clinical and commercial landscape.

The market is also characterized by high activity in licensing and co-development deals. In particular, there is sustained commercial interest in pipeline biologic therapies with a range of molecular targets. There is also considerable interest in small molecule inhibitors of intracellular kinases despite their clinical performances not being as well established as biologics or mAbs.

Scope

- The report analyzes the RA pipeline and strategic alliance landscape with particular emphasis on first-in-class programs.
- A brief introduction to RA, including symptoms, pathophysiology, and an overview of the pharmacotherapy
- Highlights of the changing molecular target landscape between marketed and pipeline products with particular focus on innovation
- A comprehensive review of first-in-class pipeline therapies; the pipeline is analyzed by Phase distribution, molecule type, molecular target, and administration route
- Identification and assessment of first-in-class molecular targets highlighting early-stage programs with clinical utility that has yet to be evaluated, as well as an in-depth literature review of novel molecular targets
- Assessment of the licensing and co-development deals for RA therapeutics

Reasons to buy

The report will assist business development strategies of companies who wish to develop RA therapies with improved benefits to existing treatments. In addition, this report will be of interest to companies seeking to expand pipeline portfolios through licensing agreements and co-development deals allowing them to -
- Understand the overall focal shifts in therapeutic molecular targets of RA treatments
- Identify first-in-class product development and understand the therapeutic and commercial prospects of first-in-class developmental programs based on available animal model data
- Assess the value of products benchmarked against licensed and co-developed therapeutic programs
- Spot first-in-class programs that are potentially available for licensing and co-development deals

In his session at DevOps Summit, Damon Edwards, co-founder and managing partner of the DTO Solutions, will highlight the successful organizational, process, and tooling patterns of high-performing c...
Software-driven innovation is becoming a primary approach to how businesses create and deliver new value to customers. A survey of 400 business and IT executives by the IBM Institute for Business Value showed businesses that are more effective at software delivery are also more profitable than their peers nearly 70 percent of the time (1). DevOps provides a way for businesses to remain competitive, applying lean and agile principles to software development to speed the delivery of software that ...
Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability. Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a high-level API. Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions, network setup, and other details of this environment. This "containerization" has often been nicknamed "the new virtualization." But containers are more than lightweight virtual machines. Beyond their small...
The move in recent years to cloud computing services and architectures has added significant pace to the application development and deployment environment. When enterprise IT can spin up large computing instances in just minutes, developers can also design and deploy in small time frames that were unimaginable a few years ago. The consequent move toward lean, agile, and fast development leads to the need for the development and operations sides to work very closely together. Thus, DevOps become...
