The report provides an overview of the approved therapies for AML, MDS, unmet need and limitations of the current SOC for relapsed and refractory pts. The report highlights the competition and commercial opportunity in pursuing this therapy area – Comprehensive list of the early and late stage drugs in the clinic, their MoA and the companies developing them.

Detailed financial and competitive analysis of the companies leading in the race to launch new therapies for this indication – Ambit Biosciences, Onconova Therapeutics, SymBio Pharma, and Celgene are available as a separate or with the full report. Key M&A activities that have taken place in this area in the last 5 years and a list of products in early /late stages of development available for in-licensing are highlighted in the report. This report is built using primary and secondary research data and in-house proprietary database.

Targeting unmet needs in the treatment of cancer through innovative drug development strategies have witnessed favorable outcomes recently. New targets have been validated in this process where kinases lead the way. Approval of Kyprolis (carfilzomib, Onyx), Pomalyst (pomalidomide, Celgene) for the Relapsed and Refractory Multiple Myeloma (RRMM) and their successful commercial launch validate the strategy deployed by the companies. We expect a similar scenario to unfold in the treatment of recurrent/ refractory MDS (RR-MDS, High-Risk MDS), and AML (relapsed/ refractory AML, R/R AML). Innovative approach to treating unmet need has been handsomely rewarded in the past through in-licensing or outright acquisition of the mature/nascent product/innovator company at a premium. The successful IPOs’ of Ambit and Onconova are indicators of the optimism prevailing amongst the investors, Patients and Physicians community.
