Next Generation Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors and Stimulators Market is estimated to be worth USD 12.5 billion in 2030

Therapies targeting novel inhibitory and stimulatory immune checkpoints have been shown to possess substantial therapeutic potential, both as monotherapies and in combination with other interventions, across multiple disease interventions

Roots Analysis is pleased to announce the publication of its recent study, titled, “Next Generation Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors and Stimulators Market, 2020-2030.” 

Cancer is known to be one of the leading causes of death worldwide, accounting for 0.6 million deaths in 2019, in the US alone. The World Health Organization has estimated the number of new cancer cases to rise by 70% over the next 20 years, across the globe. Conventional treatment options, such as chemotherapy, surgery and radiation therapy, are still considered as the current standard of care. However, their efficacy is severely limited, especially when it comes to treating late-stage cancers. Moreover, the non-specific and highly toxic nature of chemotherapy and radiation therapy, are known to have a significant adverse impact on patients’ quality of life. There are several targeted anti-cancer therapies that are available in the market and many are presently under development. Of these, immune checkpoint therapies have shown a lot of promise as viable and potent treatment options, capable of preventing tumor cells from evading immune surveillance. In 2011, Bristol-Myers Squibb’s Yervoy® (ipilimumab), an anti-CTLA-4 monoclonal antibody, became the first FDA approved immune checkpoint inhibitor which was designed for the treatment of metastatic melanoma. Yervoy®, along with other first generation immune checkpoint inhibitors (targeting PD-1/PD-L1 and CTLA-4), soon demonstrated the ability to substantially prolong the lives of patients suffering from advanced stage tumors. However, despite the success of PD 1 / PD-L1 inhibitor drugs, there was a notable amount of resistance to treatment reported in certain groups of patients, which compromised the therapeutic potential of this relatively novel class of therapeutics. 

Over the years, significant strides have been made in immune checkpoint modulation research, revealing several inhibitory (LAG-3, TIM-3, TIGIT, VISTA and B7-H3) and stimulatory receptors (OX40, ICOS, GITR, 4-1BB and CD40), which are now being exploited for development of next generation immune checkpoint-based therapies. Moreover, clinical studies of combinatorial immune checkpoint blockade / co-stimulation, involving the newly identified checkpoints and known immune checkpoint inhibitor therapies, have demonstrated the potential to further augment therapeutic benefits. It is worth highlighting that these molecules have also shown to be capable of regulating immune tolerance and preventing / treating autoimmune disorders. Therefore, backed by promising clinical results and expanding applicability of therapies being investigated in late stages of development, the immune checkpoint inhibitors and stimulators market is poised to witness substantial growth in the foreseen future.
