GlobalData’s analysis found that the significant growth recorded in Gaucher’s disease therapeutics market during 2005-2010 can be primarily attributed to increased sales of Cerezyme as well as the increased annual cost of therapy and increasing disease awareness among physicians and patients. The
Gaucher’s disease therapeutics market is expected to grow at a high rate during the forecast period due to the expected launch of novel molecules Uplyso (taliglucerase alfa) eliglustat tartrate and ISU302. These late stage pipeline molecules have improved safety and efficacy profiles, and are more cost effective than current therapeutic options, meaning that accessibility and affordability will increase. These factors are expected to drive the future market growth.

GlobalData’s analysis suggests that the Gaucher’s disease therapeutics market has significant unmet need, not only in terms of the limited number of therapeutic options available for type 1 Gaucher’s disease, but also a lack of effective treatment options for severe brain damage cases that can occur in type 2 and 3 Gaucher’s patients. Although ERT is effective in the treatment of type 1 Gaucher’s disease, there is insufficient evidence that ERT or SRT improve neurological symptoms in type 2 and 3 Gaucher’s patients. The lack of an early diagnosis may lead to further disease progression and neurological manifestations, ultimately worsening patient quality of life. The annual cost of therapy with Cerezyme exceeds $300,000 and so it is likely that many patients do not have access to medication. As well as early diagnosis, patient adherence to treatment has also been found to present a major unmet need. For example, a serious complication of Gaucher’s disease is bone disease. If left untreated, it can result in pain, permanent damage to the bone and disability. There is significant potential for the introduction of novel therapies with improved safety and efficacy profiles in the Gaucher’s disease therapeutics market.
The expected launch of late stage pipeline molecules such as Uplyso, eliglustat tartrate and ISU302 with better safety and efficacy profiles than existing approved drugs will fulfill the unmet need.
