Since the approval of Soliris® in 2007, an anti-C5 antibody, the field of complement drug discovery has gained significant attention. Currently, nine complement therapeutics are commercially available, while around 190 molecules are under development for various disease indications. Some of the complement therapeutics, namely Berinert®, Cinryze®, ORLADEYO®, Ruconest® and TAKHZYRO® were approved for the treatment of hereditary angioedema, by the US FDA and the EMA. In addition, the complement inhibitor drug, EMPAVELITM (pegcetacoplan), which is the first approved complement C3 inhibitor, developed by Apellis Pharmaceuticals, has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria; it is believed to bring in new possibilities for the treatment of autoimmune and inflammatory disorders.
Several drug developers are actively engaged in the development of next generation complement therapeutics with enhanced efficacy. A variety of molecules, such as biologics, gene therapies, oligonucleotides, small interfering RNAs and small molecule-based complement therapeutics are being developed for the treatment of different disease conditions, including dermatological, genetic, hematological and vascular, immunological and inflammatory, infectious, neurological, ophthalmic, renal disorders. Owing to the fact that the complement system is a multidimensional innate immune surveillance system, more novel therapeutic targets are likely to be discovered in the future.
Moreover, the R&D efforts in this field are also being supported by the National Institutes of Health, which have awarded grants worth USD 837 million for research efforts in this domain over the last few years. With the active involvement of big pharma players as well as new entrants, the drug development landscape of the complement therapeutics is likely to expand. Further, with the encouraging clinical research efforts, broadening of disease focus and efforts to go beyond C5 with innovative approaches that could decrease prices and address safety concerns, the complement therapeutics market is poised to witness steady growth over the coming years.
