Opportunity Analyzer: Myasthenia Gravis - Opportunity Analysis and Forecasts to 2024


Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune disease affecting the nervous system . While myasthenia gravis is a rare disease, it is considered to be the most common neuromuscular disorder and presents itself as a weakness of the muscles. In the majority of patients the disease is initially localized and limited to the eye muscles causing a drooping of the eyelid and double vision. The majority of patients progress to a more severe and generalized form, where the disease spreads to other muscles such as bulbar, limb, and respiratory muscles. Weakness of the respiratory muscles can lead to shortness of breath or in more severe cases it can lead to the patients requiring assisted ventilation. A worsening of myasthenia gravis of this sort is referred to as myasthenia crisis and is a life threatening condition, which typically occurs within the first two years after myasthenia gravis onset.


Key Questions Answered

- The myasthenia gravis market has been dominated by short and long-term-immunosuporessants and acetylcholinesterase inhibitors in the last decades. New classes of drugs are anticipated the reach the market within the forecast period. How will these drugs change the myasthenia gravis market? What impact will they have on the market size?
- The current late stage myasthenia gravis pipeline is dominated by monoclonal antibodies. Which monoclonal antibody will have the biggest impact on the market? What strategies are developers undertaking to penetrate this highly generic market? Will the new drugs fulfil any unmet needs?
- Population aging is occurring in almost all countries worldwide, particularly in the 7MM. This is expected to have a significant impact on the prevalence of myasthenia gravis. How will epidemiological changes impact the growth of the future market?

Key Findings

- The biggest barrier for growth in the myasthenia gravis market are anticipated difficulties for the reimbursement of monoclonal antibodies. Furthermore, the myasthenia gravis market is dominated by generics and off-label drugs, limiting treatment cost for patients who have an acceptable level of disease control.
