18 Feb 2016 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – The market for dry eye syndrome (DES, also termed keratoconjunctivitis sicca) has been led by artificial tears therapy and by Restasis Ophthalmic (in the USA) over a number of years, with few approved therapeutic options currently avaialble in the 9MM – the USA, 5EU, Japan, China and India. Novel classes of drugs are expected to the reach the market over the coming years. Specifically, the major stimulator of growth of the DES market growth will likely be the launch of first-in-class drugs. The change in the therapeutic landscape has already been noticed with Ikervis’ arrival in Europe as of 2015. Moreover, additional marketing approvals are being sought for currently marketed Restasis and Diquas in new countries in the 9MM. DES’s current late-stage pipeline is diverse, with first-in-class drugs in development with novel modes of action.

However, the market development has been hindered by a range of factors, with the most significant growth barrier being a vast number of drugs failing in late-stage clinical trials.

The introduction of novel therapies across the 9MM is poised to improve treatment rates and offer alternative options for a great many patients.

The hugest unmet need in the DES marketplace is projected to remain the dearth of additional efficacious and safe therapeutic agents with novel modes of action. Additionally, simplifying dosing regimens is an essential consideration for firms engaged in the development of drug products to treat these patients.

Herantis, Alcon, Mimetogen, Allergan, Otsuka, RegeneRx, Mitotech, Santen and Shire are the leading players in the marketplace.
