Marketed Drugs

Agrylin/Xagrid: Shire

Agrylin (anagrelide HCI) is the first drug approved for the treatment of Essential Thrombocythemia (ET). It is a platelet-reducing agent, with chemical name 6, 7-dichloro- 1, 5-dihydroimidazo [2, 1-b] quinazolin-2(3H)-1 monohydrochloride monohydrate. Bristol-Myers Squibb originally developed the drug, but in 1999, Roberts Pharmaceutical purchased all rights of Agrylin from them, and later Shire Plc acquired Roberts Pharmaceutical. Hence, now Shire Plc holds the rights for agrylin. The drug is approved under the name xagrid in Europe, and as agrylin in the US and Japan.

Thromboreductin: AOP Orphan Pharmaceuticals

Thromboreductin is an innovative treatment option for patients afflicted by Essential Thrombocythemia (ET), a rare but severe bone marrow disease. The active ingredient in thromboreductin, which helps in lowering the blood platelet count and reduces the risk of complications, is anagrelide. This drug is not associated with a possible risk of leukemogenesis, as is currently the case with cytostatic agents. Treatment with this drug, if successful, could help patients have an almost normal life expectancy.

Emerging Drugs

Ropeginterferon alfa-2b (P1101): PharmaEssentia

Ropeginterferon alfa-2b (P1101) is a novel, long-acting, mono-pegylated proline interferon with improved pharmacokinetic properties offering improved tolerability and convenience. It is discovered and manufactured by PharmaEssentia in a Taichung plant, which was cGMP certified by EMA in January 2018. Ropeginterferon alfa-2b is designed to be the purer interferon-alpha designed; other interferon alphas on the market currently include PEG-Intron (Merck) and Pegasys (Roche).

Jakavi (ruxolitinib): Novartis

Jakavi (ruxolitinib) is an oral JAK1/JAK2 inhibitor with clinical benefit in patients with other MPNs, myelofibrosis (MF), ET, and PV. It is approved by the European Commission for the treatment of adult patients with PV who are resistant to or intolerant of hydroxyurea and for the treatment of disease-related splenomegaly or symptoms in adult patients with primary MF (also known as chronic idiopathic MF), post-PV MF or post-ET MF. The exact indication for Jakavi varies by country. Novartis licensed ruxolitinib from Incyte Corporation for development and commercialization outside the United States. Jakavi is marketed in the United States by Incyte Corporation as Jakafi for patients with PV who have had an inadequate response to or are intolerant of hydroxyurea.

Bomedemstat (IMG-7289): Imago BioSciences

Bomedemstat (IMG-7289) is a small molecule discovered by Imago BioSciences that inhibits lysine-specific demethylase 1 (LSD1 or KDM1A), an enzyme essential for the production and normal function of megakaryocytes and self-renewal of malignant hematopoietic stem or progenitor cells. Megakaryocytes are the primary producer of platelets and cytokines that drive essential thrombocythemia pathogenesis. Currently, bomedemstat is being tested in clinical studies as a potentially disease-modifying monotherapy for MF, ET, and related indications.

Market Outlook

ET is associated with an increased risk of thrombohemorrhagic complications and transformation to myelofibrosis (MF) or acute leukemia (AL). Cytoreductive therapy (CRT) is used to reduce thrombosis and hemorrhage in high-risk ET. The CRT treatment includes the use of CRT, anagrelide, hydroxycarbamide, busulfan, interferon- (IFN), pegylated interferon, pipobroman and sodium phosphate (P32).

Low-risk patients are recommended aspirin if there are no significant contraindications for the same. There should be a careful consideration of the possibility of acquiring von Willebrand disease when platelets are more than 1,000 109/L because, in the setting of abnormal von Willebrand laboratory parameters, aspirin should not be used. Aspirin is also the indicated treatment for a patient with microvascular thrombosis such as erythromelalgia. Also, antiplatelet and cytoreductive therapy is adopted for a high-risk patient.

Pregnant patients with ET are recommended to use low molecular weight heparin during pregnancy for 6 weeks after delivery in addition to cytoreduction with pegylated interferon. Also, in pregnant females who have extremely high platelets, the action of interferon is slow to bring down the platelets; plateletpheresis was reported to be an option to reduce the number of platelets.

Apart from this, the other treatment recommendations in young women wishing to become pregnant or are pregnant include once-daily aspirin for very low-risk or low-risk disease and pegylated IFN- for high-risk disease. Both aspirin and IFN- therapy are safe for use during pregnancy and might be associated with lower miscarriage rates in women with ET.

Key Findings

  • The market size of Essential Thrombocythemia (ET) in the 7MM was found to be USD 616.05 million in 2017.
  • Among the 7MM countries, the United States had the highest market size of Essential Thrombocythemia (ET) in 2017, which accounts for approximately 74.03% of the total market.
