While Some New Agents Will Achieve Strong Sales, the Migraine Drug Market Will Decline $1.3 Billion by 2018 as Generic Erosion Takes Toll on Top-Selling Brands
Date:8/5/2009

WALTHAM, Mass., Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms for pharmaceutical and healthcare issues, finds that although sales of emerging therapies will partially offset losses to generic competitors, the migraine drug market will decline from $4.7 billion in 2008 to $3.4 billion in 2018 in the United States, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom and Japan.

"If the long-term safety of the drug is confirmed, telcagepant will offer a useful alternative for patients in whom the triptans are contraindicated as well as some patients who are refractory to, dissatisfied with or intolerant of triptan treatment. Moreover, we expect that some clinicians, including those who may still avoid triptans because of lingering safety concerns, will adopt telcagepa
