Velneperit (Obesity) - Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022
After a more than decade-long dormancy, the obesity market is undergoing a revival with the advent of several novel therapies that will lend considerable visibility to this indication space. This includes the use of combination therapies that simultaneously target multiple pathways and regulate appetite control, as well as novel molecular entities with new mechanisms of action. Due to this growing pipeline of late-stage drugs, this market is expected to experience substantial growth over the next decade. The main drivers of growth will be a large overweight and obese population that need pharmacological intervention, the increasingly frequent prescription of pharmacological therapy as physicians make preemptive efforts to curtail disease progression with earlier treatment, as well as greater responsibility of third party payers for reimbursement and thus allow greater access of medications to patients.
Shionogi is developing velneperit, previously known as S-2367, as an oral, once-daily, centrally-acting, small-molecule NPY5 receptor antagonist. Neuropeptide Y (NPY) is an appetite-stimulating, or orexigenic, signaling molecule that plays a role in meal initiation and the regulation of energy balance, and is believed to be especially important under conditions of food deprivation or reduced weight. Velneperit was designed to counteract elevated NPY levels, thereby promoting weight loss and continued weight-loss maintenance.
