Drug Companies Focus on Improving Long-term Outcome of New Drugs

Technological advancements in the past few decades have introduced new and innovative treatments for a range of health problems. The advent of organ transplants is one of the most revolutionary developments in the medical space, and attained a considerable amount of acceptance and popularity worldwide. However, while organ transplant has its own share of benefits, it also has the potential to negatively impact the immune system of the recipient due to which, organ transplant rejection medications have come under the spotlight. Immunologists and other stakeholders in the current value chain of the organ transplant rejection medications market are continually investing resources to assess the adaptive responses to solid organ transplantation.

As these studies continue to grow in number, they have played an imperative role in the development of new immunosuppressive drugs– a factor that is likely to aid the growth of the organ transplant rejection medications market during the forecast period (2020-2027). The demand for organ transplant rejection medications is witnessing considerable growth, as these drugs have enhanced short-term graft survival and minimized the rate of acute organ transplant rejection. Despite offering favorable short-term results, stakeholders in the current market landscape are expected to concentrate on improving the long-term outcome of these drugs. The global organ transplant rejection medications market is expected to reach a value of ~US$ 6.3 Bn by the end of the forecast period.

Calcineurin Inhibitors to Remain Most Popular Drug Class

The organ transplant rejection medications market is predominantly dominated by kidney transplants, as the number of kidney transplants continues to outnumber other types of organ transplants such as bone marrow transplant, heart transplant, liver transplant, lung transplant, etc. Over the past few years, studies and research activities have focused on assessing the impact of the various organ transplant rejection medications employed post kidney transplantation, including calcineurin inhibitors, mTOR inhibitors, steroids, and antibodies.

In the current scenario, calcineurin inhibitors, including cyclosporine and tacrolimus, are some of the most used organ transplantation rejection medications. In addition, as calcineurin inhibitors hinder the secretion of cytokines and presentation of antigens within the innate immune cells, they curb the T cell priming capacity. These factors play a critical role in the pathogenesis of acute rejection. Stakeholders and drug companies are expected to find new immunosuppressive drugs that will eliminate the long-term negative effects put forward by traditional organ transplant rejection drugs.

Development of New Immunosuppressive Drugs to Influence Market Growth

Since the inception of solid organ transplantation, the organ transplant rejection medications market has witnessed innovations and developments. The development of new drugs has reduced graft rejection and improved survival by a considerable margin. The development of new organ transplant rejection medications started to gain considerable amount of traction in the 1990s, and these drugs have laid a solid foundation for the development of new drugs in the current era. Drug manufacturers in the organ transplant rejection medications market are primarily focusing on finding solutions to enhance long-term graft survival and minimize the burden of side-effects. In 2011, belatacept exhibited strong potential for biological non-nephrotoxic maintenance immunosuppression. Moreover, belatacept also offered tremendous promise in long-term graft survival. However, due to the fear of rejection, insufficient availability, high costs, and a dearth of supporting data, the adoption of belatacept took a beating due to which, the demand for the existing tacrolimus continued to grow at a significant pace.

Due to various factors, the development of new organ transplant rejection medications hit a roadblock post the approval of belatacept. However, in the current scenario, clinical trials of other compounds, including CFZ533 is in progress, which could provide a much-needed breakthrough for kidney transplantation. In addition, apart from the classical development of new organ transplant rejection medications, several companies in the organ transplant rejection medications market are likely to invest a significant amount of resources on the development of new cell therapies, which could possibly replace conventional organ transplant rejection medications in the years to come.
