Hereditary Angioedema Therapeutics Pipeline Analysis 2017 - Clinical Trials & Results, Collaboration and Other Developments

The pipeline of hereditary angioedema is increasing on account of rising instances of angioedema, globally. Currently, an estimated prevalence of hereditary angioedema in the world is 1 in 10,000 to 1 in 150,000. Major factors driving the growth of pipeline for hereditary angioedema include increasing prevalence of attacks of angioedema and rising cases of angioedema in association with other conditions like significant hypotension resulting from abdominal attacks, low market penetration as very less number of companies are making an analog and increasing awareness of health issues. The impairment in quality of life and rising medical cost also act as the driving factor for the hereditary angioedema pipeline.

Angioedema can be defined as swelling of mucosal or skin tissues, which leads to extravasation of fluid into the interstitium and loss of vascular integrity. There are two basic types of angioedema, histaminergic angioedema and non-histaminergic angioedema. Histaminergic is basically associated with urticaria. Non-histaminergic angioedema is usually not associated with urticaria, and is only mediated by bradykinin. The non-histaminergic angioedema is further divided in four categories namely, angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor-associated angioedema, hereditary angioedema (HAE), idiopathic angioedema and acquired angioedema. Hereditary angioedema is symptomatized as episodic swelling disorder and arises from autosomal dominant trait. Clinical features include nonpitting edema of external body surfaces, abdominal pain, swelling of the extremities and swelling of the mouth and throat, which can lead to asphyxiation.

Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) or Hodgkin’s disease is an uncommon cancer of the lymphatic system, such as lymph nodes. The lymphatic system is made up of a network of vessels and glands that spread throughout the body. The vessels of lymphatic system known as lymphocytes carrying clear fluid known as lymph, contains lymphocytes (white blood cells that help combat infection). The lymphatic is a part of the human body’s immune system. In Hodgkin’s lymphoma, the patient experiences a painless swelling in a lymph node, usually in the neck, armpit or groin.


Ono Pharmaceuticals and Bristol-Myers Squibb are in the process of developing Opdivo for the treatment of Hodgkin’s disease. Seattle Genetics has developed ADCETRIS (brentuximab vedotin) as an antibody drug conjugate for Hodgkin’s disease. Merck & Co., Inc. has also developed Keytruda for the treatment of Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Though, major companies are developing promising drugs for Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatment, the new entrants are facing the challenge of fulfilling the relapsed or refractory (R/R) Hodgkin’s lymphoma patients’ unmet needs, and of bringing a reduction in the adverse effects of current treatments in the long term, thereby improving patients’ overall survival.

Testicular cancer is the tumor that develops in the testicles. Testicles are the glands found in men that produce testosterone hormone and sperms. The cause of testicular cancer is attributable to enormous growth of testicular cells due to some abnormalities, resulting in the formation of tumor in testicles, causing testicular cancer. Cryptorchidism, inguinal hernia, congenital abnormalities, abnormal testicular development and family history can increase the risk of testicular cancer. Mumps orchitis are also one of risk factors which is a very rare complication of mumps, which involves the inflammation of testicles. Pain, swelling, discomfort, sensation of heaviness and sudden fluid accumulation in scrotum are the main symptoms of testicular cancer.

Diagnosis of testicular cancer is done through a blood test, ultrasound and biopsy. Also, the type of testicular cancer is determined with the diagnosis along with its stage. There are two types of testicular cancer- seminoma testicular cancer and non- seminoma testicular cancer. After the diagnosis, the treatment options are selected according to the stage and the type of testicular cancer. The treatment options that are available to the patients are chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery. Surgery include orchidectomy, removal of both the testicles, lymph node surgery and hormone replacement therapy.
