MEK inhibitors are the drugs which inhibit the mitogen-activated extracellular signal-regulated kinase, a key component of RAS/RAF/MEK/ERK signaling pathway which is mostly mutated in cancers. Presently, four MEK inhibitors have entered the market including Mekinist, Cotellic, Mektovi, and Koselugeo. In short span of approval, these drugs have shown robust response in the global market which suggests the promising future of MEK targeted therapy in the management of cancer.
The promising response of MEK inhibitor in the global market has propelled further clinical trials in this sector. For instance, recent clinical trials demonstrated that Trametinib can be a new standard of care for women with recurrent low-grade serous carcinoma. Apart from this, the results from phase-II clinical trial also demonstrated encouraging response of combination of matinib (Gleevec) plus the MEK inhibitor binimetinib (Mektovi) in patients with treatment-naïve advanced gastrointestinal stromal tumors. Apart from this, the pipeline of novel MEK inhibitor is also crowded and consists of several potential candidates including AZD8330, E6201, CS3006, VS-6766, HL085, Pimacertib and Mirdametinib. NFX179 developed by Nflection Therapeutics is a novel topical MEK inhibitor which can overcome the limitations of systemic MEK inhibitors. The robust pipeline of drugs indicates promising future of MEK inhibitor in cancer therapeutics market.
The researchers have gained significant interest in the development of novel MEK inhibitors owing to their specificity and ability to overcome the limitations of already approved therapies. Recent preclinical studies have demonstrated that resistance to PI3K inhibitors in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) can be overcome by adding a MEK1/2 inhibitor to treatment. Therefore, several ongoing clinical trials are evaluating the role of MEK inhibitors in combination with other small molecule inhibitors including P13K inhibitors, which will enhance the efficacy of treatment and overcome drug resistance.
The accelerated sales of the drug and the significant advantages have drawn the attention of several researchers and pharmaceutical companies to invest in this sector. For instance in 2021, Lupin received US$ 50 Million from Germany-based Boehringer Ingelheim for achievement of key milestones by its novel cancer drug, a potential target therapy for patients with difficult-to-treat cancers. Lupin’s MEK inhibitor compound (LNP3794) that is planned for development by Boehringer Ingelheim in combination as potential targeted therapy for patients with difficult-to-treat cancers. The other key players investing in the growth of market include Roche, Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Novartis, Cstone Therapeutics, and Ono Pharmaceuticals. The extensive efforts by the researchers and the rising collaboration among the pharmaceutical giants are expected to drive the future of the market in coming years.
As per our report findings, the global MEK inhibitor market is expected to surpass US$ 3 Billion by 2028. The ongoing clinical trials and studies on MEK inhibitors as a new treatment option in the field of oncology is anticipated to drive the global MEK inhibitors market during the forecast period. Furthermore, the increase in incidences of melanoma and rising awareness about new treatment options across the globe are also propelling the growth of market during the forecast period. In addition, rising government initiatives and development of favorable reimbursement policies will also enhance the uptake of MEK inhibitors in the market.
The report offers comprehensive insights of the pipeline therapeutics scenario and growth prospects across Mitogen Activated Protein Kinase (MEK or MAP2K) Inhibitor development. The report provides detailed coverage of the pipeline landscape for this mechanism of action, commercial information of already available MEK inhibitor, and sales forecast till 2026. On the basis of indication, the market has been segmented into melanoma, lung cancer, colorectal cancer, breast cancer, and thyroid cancer. The report also provides regional analysis of the MEK inhibitor market in US, Europe, China, and Japan.
