Lidoderm/Versatis (Neuropathic Pain) - Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022
Neuropathic pain (NP) is defined as a disorder of the sensorimotor system and is distinctly different from nociceptive pain, which is a consequence of trauma, injury, or inflammation. The main difference between neuropathic and nociceptive pain is the absence of a continuous nociceptive input in neuropathic pain. Although the term neuropathic pain is used to describe a wide range of pain syndromes with varying etiologies, this report focuses on 3 distinct forms of NP: Painful diabetic neuropathy, Postherpetic neuralgia and trigeminal neuralgia. The main classes of drugs used to treat these three neuropathic pain indications include anticonvulsants, antidepressants, opioids and topical treatments. However, despite the availability of multiple pain medications only 50% of patients respond to any given drug and there are numerous the side effects associated particularly with systemically administered drugs, that reduce their tolerability. New treatments will target some key unmet needs in terms of efficacy and tolerability, but opportunities will remain for drugs that can more reliably eradicated NP in targeted patient populations, as well as offering an improved safety profile.
Lidoderm, the topical analgesic 5% lidocaine patch (medicated plaster), was invented by US pharmacist Harry Hind (Hind Healthcare) and was approved by the FDA in March 1999 for the treatment of PHN. Teikoku Seiyaku then assumed from Hind full responsibility for manufacture of the Lidoderm patch, while Endo Pharmaceuticals has the rights to market the patch in the US. The patch was launched by Endo in the US in September 1999 for the treatment of PHN. In Europe, the patch was co-developed by Teikoku and the German drug company, Grünenthal, and was launched in the EU in 2007 under the brand name Versatis.
