B-cell lymphoma 2 genes are crucial genes which are involved in regulating the balance between newly forming cells and old dying cells. Studies have demonstrated the role of Bcl-2 gene in inhibiting apoptosis, and therefore it is recognized as promising target for the drug development process. In addition, mutations in Bcl-2 gene is observed in several cancers including leukemia, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, breast cancer, prostate cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, and others. The therapeutic potential of this target has led to the development of several Bcl-2 inhibitors which can be used in the management of cancer.
Venclexta (Venetoclax) developed by Abbvie and Roche is the first Bcl-2 inhibitor approved by regulatory bodies. It is indicated for the treatment of newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia patients in combination with azacitidine, or decitabine, or low-dose cytarabine (LDAC). Studies have shown that the novel combinational drug significantly enhanced the overall survival rate and improvement in complete remission. Apart from acute myeloid leukemia, several ongoing trials is evaluating the role of drug as monotherapy or combinational therapy in management of wide range of cancers including chronic lymphocytic leukemia, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma, and other cancers, which will further propel the growth of market.
The advent of Bcl-2 inhibitor in the management of cancer has greatly transformed the cancer therapeutics market. In a short span of time, Bcl2 inhibitory drugs have contributed to a significant share in the cancer therapeutics market owing to their high specificity and target ability towards cancer cell. Unlike conventional cancer therapies, the novel class of Bcl-2 inhibitors is not associated with any adverse side-effects and does not hamper the quality of life of patients. The robust sales of the approved drug have further encouraged the research and development activities in this sector. Currently, a cocktail of Bcl-2 targeted drugs are present in clinical development which are indicated for wide range of B-cell malignancies. The potential candidate in development includes AZD4320, LP108, BGB11417, APG-2575, and Navitoclax. These drugs are majorly present in phase-I/II trials and will enter the market in coming 4-5 years, thus boosting the growth of market.
Although the Bcl-2 targeted drugs have shown to considerable improve survival outcomes in patients, but it is shown that hematologic malignancies often develop acquired or inherent resistance. By analyzing several resistance mechanisms, various clinical trials are being conducted to overcome the resistance by utilizing combinational therapies. For instance, scientists are evaluating the combination of venetoclax in combination with obinutuzumab in chronic lymphocytic leukemia patients. It is present in phase-III trial and is expected to enter the market during forecast years. As per our analysis, combinational therapies will have a dominant share in the market owing to their high specificity and enhanced efficiency.
The growing awareness about hematological malignancies associated with high medical needs for the development of targeted therapy will drive the growth of global Bcl-2 inhibitors market. The presence of large pharmaceutical sector and favorable governmental policies in US are expected to drive the dominance of the region for the next few years. The key players in the market include Abbie, Amgen, Novartis, Roche, Ligand Pharma, and Beigene. In addition to this, the rising awareness among the individuals about the availability of the novel therapies and the increasing geriatric population will further fuel the growth of the market in this region. Apart from this, Europe is also emerging as a potential market due to subsequent rise in incidence of cancer and rapid approval of drug in 2021. It is expected that in coming years, Bcl2 inhibitors will contribute to a major share in the overall cancer therapeutics market with several product launches during the forecast period.
