PharmaPoint: Irritable Bowel Syndrome - Global Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2023

Summary

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder characterized by abdominal discomfort associated with altered bowel function. Although IBS is not a life-threatening disorder, it has a considerable effect on patients’ quality of life (QOL). In terms of volume, the IBS market is a large, albeit naïve, one, with only a small number of pharmacotherapies indicated for the treatment of the disorder, and it is also characterized by significant unmet needs.

As of October 2014, there were four products indicated for IBS in the 7MM. These include the constipation-predominant IBS (IBS-C) therapies, Sucampo/Takeda/Abbott’s Amitiza (lubiprostone) and Ironwood/Actavis/Almirall/Astellas’ Linzess (linaclotide), and the diarrhea-predominant IBS (IBS-D) therapies, Prometheus’ Lotronex (alosetron) and Astellas’ Irribow (ramosetron). Antidepressants and antibiotics (mainly Salix/Alfa Wassermann/Norgine/Bama-Geve’s Xifaxan [rifaximin]), are also commonly used off-label to treat IBS. GlobalData anticipates that four new therapies have the potential to enter the IBS market during the 2013-2023 forecast period. This includes Furiex’s (Actavis’) eluxadoline and Menarini’s ibodutant for IBS-D, and Synergy’s plecanatide and AstraZeneca/Ardelyx’s tenapanor for IBS-C. In addition, Xifaxan is in development for IBS-D, and has the potential to gain a label expansion for this indication during the forecast period.
