DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/bl5pzg/emixustat) has announced the addition of the "Emixustat (Macular Edema and Macular Degeneration) - Forecast and Market Analysis to 2023" report to their offering.
Currently the ME and AMD markets are dominated by the use of anti-VEGF monotherapy, however, in recent years, corticosteroid implants have been reaching the ME market which could challenge the stronghold these drugs have in this sector. The AMD market will see the arrival of the first therapies to treat dry AMD, fulfilling a huge unmet need in the management of this retinal disease, and these first-in-class therapies will strongly drive the market growth over the next ten years. The launch of wet AMD adjunctive therapies will also see a significant change in the treatment of AMD patients and have a positive impact on the market growth.
Emixustat hydrochloride (formerly known as ACU-4429) is an orally-dosed VCM that is designed to be selective for rod photoreceptors and is being developed for the treatment of GA associated with dAMD. This was the first internally-developed compound by Acucela, a Seattle-based biotechnology company. Acucela has one issued US patent (No. 7,982,071) and seven pending US patents for emixustat, all of which will expire in or around 2029.
