Melanocortin Receptor 4 (MC4R) - Pipeline Review, H2 2018

Melanocortin Receptor 4 (MC4R) - Pipeline Review, H2 2018

Summary

Melanocortin Receptor 4 (MC4R) - Melanocortin 4 receptor (MC4R) is a G protein-coupled receptor involved in the hypothalamic leptin-melanocortin signaling pathway. MC4R is encoded by the MC4R gene. Activation of the MC4R plays a key role in the maintenance of energy homeostasis and is associated with suppression of food intake.

Melanocortin Receptor 4 (MC4R) pipeline Target constitutes close to 11 molecules. Out of which approximately 9 molecules are developed by companies and remaining by the universities/institutes. The molecules developed by companies in Pre-Registration, Phase III, Phase II, Phase I and Preclinical stages are 1, 1, 1, 1 and 5 respectively. Similarly, the universities portfolio in Discovery stages comprises 2 molecules, respectively.

Report covers products from therapy areas Metabolic Disorders, Central Nervous System, Genetic Disorders, Musculoskeletal Disorders, Infectious Disease and Women's Health which include indications Obesity, Type 2 Diabetes, Alphavirus Infections, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Cachexia, Female Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder, Gouty Arthritis (Gout), Infantile Spasm (West Syndrome), Lipodystrophy (Lipoatrophy), Metabolic Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis and Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS).
