Women's Health Cluster Drug Development Pipeline Review, 2017

Published: May 2017 | Published By: GBI Research


This report provides an overview of the women’s health pipeline landscape. The report provides comprehensive information on the therapeutics under development and key players involved in therapeutic development for female infertility, polycystic ovarian syndrome and endometriosis, and also features dormant and discontinued projects.

The three key disorders covered in this report are largely driven by dysfunction of the endocrine system, but have a broad range of effects. Infertility is defined as the inability to get pregnant after a year of unprotected intercourse. Female infertility can be also be caused by a number of factors, which include damage to fallopian tubes, hormonal causes, cervical causes, uterine causes, unexplained infertility. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common hormonal disorder among women of reproductive age. Symptoms include menstrual abnormality, acne, thinning hair on the scalp, weight gain, excess androgen and polycystic ovaries. Finally, endometriosis is an often painful disorder in which tissue that normally lines the inside of uterus (the endometrium) grows outside the uterus (endometrial implant). Symptoms include pelvic pain, menstrual cramps, inflammation, infertility and abnormal bleeding.

The size of these pipelines ranges from 12 in PCOS to 87 in female infertility. The most common types of therapy being developed in these diseases act on hormone receptors, reflecting the hormone-driven pathophysiology of this disease area. However, particularly in polycystic ovarian syndrome, a broader range of molecular targets, such as intracellular protein kinases, chemokine receptors and other cell signaling components are also targeted.
