B-Cell Maturation Antigen (BCMA) Targeted Therapies Market Growth to Surge Owing to Increasing Adoption by End-use Applications

Press Release

Recurrence of multiple myeloma has been a highly prevalent health condition, which requires novel and effective immunotherapeutic treatment. According to Leukemia Research by Elsevier, as of 2014, the incidence of multiple myeloma is estimated to be around 120,000 cases per year, with a global prevalence of over one million cases. B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA), is a cell surface protein that is expressed on the malignant plasma cells. This cell surface protein has emerged as a very selective antigen targeted therapy for the treatment of multiple myeloma. BCMA targeted therapies actively involve three major types of immunotherapies on the basis of product class namely, chimeric antigen receptor T-cells (CAR T Cells), bispecific antibodies, and antibody drug conjugates (ADCs). These advanced therapies are expected to improve the survival rate of multiple myeloma patients.

Market Dynamics

Increasing prevalence of multiple myeloma is expected to favor the B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA) targeted therapies market worldwide. According to the American Cancer Society, U.S., in 2016, the lifetime risk for multiple myeloma was around 1 in 143 people, with an estimated 30,280 adults (17,490 men and 12,790 women) diagnosed with multiple myeloma. The mortality rate of the disease was estimated to be 12,590 (6,660 men and 5,930 women) in 2016. Key players are actively involved in the development of immunotherapies targeting BCMA for the treatment of multiple myeloma, the demand for which is expected to increase, This in turn, is expected to boost development of novel treatments for relapsed or refractory myeloma. Furthermore, patients undergoing existing drug therapies are prone to the risk of relapse. Hence, B-cell maturation antigen targeted therapy, which primarily addresses this concern is expected to gain rapid traction.

B-Cell maturation antigen (BCMA), is a cell surface protein that is expressed on the malignant plasma cells. The expression profiles exhibited by TACI and BAFF-R are comparatively lower than that of the BCMA in multiple myeloma patients. Also, these antigens are hardly detected in the malignant plasma cells thus suggesting BCMA to be a standard choice over the other targeting antigens. The expression of BCMA gradually increases with the progression from normal Monoclonal Gammopathy of Undetermined Significance (MUGA) to smoldering multiple myeloma (SMM) to active multiple myeloma.

This unique expression profile is exhibited only by the BCMA cells as they have a very restricted expression pattern and are unexpressed in normal human tissues. BCMA-target therapy treatment has thus gained traction for cancer treatment and will be the choice of treatment especially for multiple myeloma. B-Cell Maturation Antigen possess co-immunoprecipitation property with a master transcription factor (IRF-4), that are mediated for myeloma cell survival. B-cell maturation antigen targeted therapies actively involve three major types of immunotherapies on the basis of product class namely, chimeric antigen receptor T-cells (CAR T Cells), bispecific antibodies, and antibody drug conjugates (ADCs). However, high cost of the treatment will be the barrier for the growth of the B-cell maturation Antigen (BCMA) targeted therapies market due to the cost involved in multiple combinational drug as well as maintenance therapy cost.

Key players are actively developing the products which are in preclinical and clinical trials, results on these classes of therapies have demonstrated potential benefits, mainly through the safety profile offered by these therapies.

Increase in number of pipeline products are expected to boost growth of the B-cell maturation Antigen (BCMA) targeted therapies market

Market players are actively investing in research and development of novel multiple myeloma therapies to develop alternatives for existing drugs. These therapies includes chimeric antigen receptor T cells, antibody-drug conjugate, and Bi-specific antibodies. For instance, GlaxoSmithKline Plc. (GSK2857916) is developing the antibody drug conjugate drug with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma and other advanced hematologic malignancies expressing BCMA. The robust pipeline therapies for treatment of multiple myeloma is expected to boost growth of the B-cell maturation Antigen (BCMA) targeted therapies market

High unmet needs by the recurring cases of multiple myeloma is expected to drive growth of the B-cell maturation Antigen (BCMA) targeted therapies market

The patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation therapy are at high risk of recurrence of cancer as they develop resistance to these therapy. At present there are no treatment options are available for patients with recurrent cancer and hence the BCMA targeted therapies provides breakthrough therapeutic options for the treatment of relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma and will also cater to the current unmet needs for the treatment of relapsed or refractory myeloma, where the existing treatment modalities have proved to be clinically inefficient.

Key players operating in the development of B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA) targeted therapies market are Celgene Corporation, GlaxoSmithKline plc, Novartis AG, Juno Therapeutics, Gilead Sciences. Inc., Amgen Inc., Affimed N.V, Poseida Therapeutics, Inc., and Autolus Ltd.
