Myasthenia Gravis Therapeutics Analysis, Designation, Collaboration and Developments
United States, 21 November 2018 -- Myasthenia Gravis currently exhibits a pipeline of 19 drug candidates by P&S Intelligence.
The study analysed that the therapeutics pipeline comprises of approximately 19 drug candidates in different stages of development. Myasthenia gravis is a chronic autoimmune disorder that acts on neuromuscular junction and leads to the weakening of skeletal muscles. This causes loss of muscle control in moving the body parts, such as the movement of arms and legs, breathing, loss of eye movements, chewing, talking, and swallowing. The situation of the disease worsens after a period of activity and improves after a period of rest.
Various companies, educational institutes and medical organizations are collaborating for the development of drugs for the treatment of this disease. For instance, Merck & Co., Inc. entered into a multi-targeted collaboration and license agreement with Ra Pharmaceuticals, Inc. to use the latter’s drug discovery technology platform for the development of orally available cyclic peptides for the treatment of myasthenia gravis.
It has been observed that most of the drugs in the myasthenia gravis therapeutics pipeline, are being developed from the natural source. NT-1654 is a heparan sulfate proteoglycan, and is under development by Neurotune AG for the treatment of myasthenia gravis. The drug acts as a neuromuscular junction stimulator.
