Executive Summary
Pain is a major health issue that is estimated to affect 1.5 billion people worldwide. Chronic pain is highly debilitating but acute or episodic pain is also a major problem. Pain is also a physiological defense mechanism to damaging stimuli. Pain is generally perceived as a sensory phenomenon. Drugs for the treatment of pain, called analgesics, are generally classified as CNS therapies. Pain management therapies constitute one of the major segments of the CNS market. The analgesic effects of opium and pure opioids such as morphine have long been recognized as the mainstay of treatment for many types of pain. Pain comes in many forms, both acute and chronic, while some conditions such as cancer pain comprise both forms of pain. Migraine is a distinct form of acute pain with severe headaches a major symptom. Acute pain is also experienced as a consequence of injuries. Acute pain, which can last from several days to six months and covers arthritic conditions, represents 40% of the $52 billion global analgesic market. Chronic, persistent pain may be associated with earlier injuries and is also commonly associated with musculoskeletal and joint conditions. Chronic pain is common in older, arthritic, patients but is present in many other conditions, with an estimated 30 million Americans suffering from chronic pain. Opioids are ill suited to treating chronic pain because their long term use can give rise to a physiological dependence. Thus, arthritic pain is better suited to treatment with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and certain topical agents. Neuropathic pain is a distinct form of chronic pain that arises as a consequence of lesions in, or dysfunctions of, the nervous system, and is generally long lasting. Common forms of neuropathic pain are diabetic neuropathy, postherpetic neuralgia and HIV-related neuropathic pain. These are estimated to affect over six million people in the major world markets. Neuropathic pain requires specific and targeted treatment, and is treated mainly with selected antidepressants and anticonvulsants. Fibromyalgia is another common, chronic condition which appears to be a disorder of pain processing. Although substantially underdiagnosed, it is estimated to affect 2% to 5% of the adult population. Fibromyalgia only responds to a few specific drugs with few agents currently approved for its treatment. Recommendations for the treatment of pain are based upon incremental use of more potent analgesics until pain relief is achieved. The three-step paradigm for treating chronic pain is well established. Similar approaches to treating neuropathic pain, trigeminal pain and fibromyalgia have been proposed but are less widely accepted to date. These approaches cover the use of a number of classes of drugs, each of which also has some side effect issues. The most extensively used drugs are acetaminophen, NSAIDs and opioids. Overusage of acetaminophen poses problems of hepatotoxicity which can result in liver failure, leading the FDA to propose restrictions on the maximal amount of acetaminophen in combination products. NSAIDs increase bleeding time and damage the gastric mucosa, which can result in gastric ulceration. These problems are not seen with agents like celecoxib. Opioids unfortunately have a constellation of unwanted multiple side effects. In addition to the development of physical dependence (addiction) to the drug, their use can produce sedation, dizziness, emesis, constipation and respiratory depression. The last named should be avoided because of the potentially fatal consequences. In addition, opioids are widely abused, which has led the development of tamper-proof formulations and to the imposition of additional controls on their availability, relative to most prescription drugs. 2013 TriMark Publications, LLC. All rights reserved. Despite the size of the world pain market and the availability of multiple classes of drugs whose analgesic use is well established, there are many unmet needs. There is a medical need for improved therapies for chronic pain, with respect to efficacy and/or side effect profile, and to address the widely recognized undertreatment of pain. The WHO has stated that undertreated pain is the number one health problem in North America, with the number of chronic pain patients in the U.S. exceeding the total of those suffering from diabetes, heart disease and cancer. A similar undertreatment of acute pain is also recognized while both neuropathic pain and fibromyalgia suffer from both undertreatment and under diagnosis. There is thus a considerable need for new, more effective pain therapeutics. The global pain market is one of substantial value, despite the fact that there are few blockbuster analgesic products on the market. There is widespread usage of generic drugs and also significant reliance on over-the-counter drugs. In addition, there is significant off-label use of drugs to treat some pain conditions. Consequently, the reported values for the pain market vary substantially, although all agree it is of high value. In 2012, the global pain market was estimated to be $53 billion, with $29.5 billion of this produced in the seven major markets (the U.S., Japan, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK). Additional significant and distinct market segments accounted for the following revenues in 2012: neuropathic pain $5.9 billion, migraine $3.2 billion and fibromyalgia $1.9 billion. The pain market is dominated by two major classes of drugs. Opioids and NSAIDs accounted for 71% of the market by value in 2011, local anesthetic formulations held a 5% share, and certain antidepressants and anticonvulsants respectively accounted for 11% and 13% market shares. The migraine market is almost completely attributable to sales of a small number of triptans, while off-label use of various drugs account for much of the neuropathic pain and fibromyalgia segments. The high value ($13 billion) opioid segment is dominated by sales of oxycodone ($4.8 billion) and hydrocodone ($3.5 billion), with Purdue's OxyContin formulation of oxycodone the only major branded product (2012 sales of $3.7 billion). Generic opioid formulations have steadily eroded the sales of other branded opioids. Branded formulations of five drugs (Pfizer's Celebrex and Advil, Astellas' Celecox, Novartis' and Endo's Voltaren, Hisamitsu's Mohrus Tape and Daiichi Sankyo's Loxonin) collectively accounted for 55% of NSAID revenues, with the two celecoxib (Celebrex and Celecox) formulations producing revenues of $3.3 billion. Both oral and topical NSAID formulations are widely used, with the latter, such as Mohrus Tape, being especially popular in the Japanese market. Acetaminophen usage is mostly of OTC products such as Tylenol, or in combination with opioids as in Vicodin. The use of local anesthetic formulations is mostly confined to the treatment of acute pain, especially postoperative pain, and during surgical procedures. This market segment generated revenues of $540 million in 2012, with generic formulations increasingly important, but remains dominated by AstraZeneca, with a 40% market share. More recently topical formulations of some agents have become available for certain chronic pain conditions, with Endo's Lidoderm generating revenues of $825 million for use in treating postherpetic neuralgia. Symptoms of pain often arise in depressed patients, and it has been observed that certain antidepressants are effective in attenuating such symptoms and/or neuropathic pain. The more effective agents are certain tricyclic antidepressants, those which are tertiary amines, and the SNRIs duloxetine, venlafaxine and milnacipran, while bupropion is only effective in the treatment of neuropathic pain. The only agents of this type approved for the treatment of any forms of pain are Eli Lilly's Cymbalta (duloxetine), for fibromyalgia and chronic musculoskeletal pain, while in the U.S., Forest's Savella (milnacipran) is only approved for the treatment of fibromyalgia and not depression. It is estimated that approximately 25% of Cymbalta's $5.0 billion sales were from its use in the treatment of pain and fibromyalgia, dwarfing Savella's 2012 revenues of $104 million. Anticonvulsant drugs were originally developed for the treatment of epilepsy. However, several anticonvulsants have been found to be useful in the treatment of pain, especially neuropathic pain. Of the older anticonvulsants, topiramate, oxcarbazepine and carbamazepine are the best established as useful in treating pain. The most useful agent is Pfizer's Lyrica (pregabalin) which is approved for the treatment of several pain indications. The bulk of U.S. sales of Lyrica and one-third of the global sales of $4.2 billion are estimated to be due to its use in treating pain disorders. The U.S. has by far the most significant pain therapeutic market, both in value and in its usage of certain opioids in particular. The pain markets in Europe and Japan are of significant value, respectively $5.2 billion and $4.1 billion, 2013 TriMark Publications, LLC. All rights reserved. but the combination of lower drug usage, lower prices and greater use of generics ensures that these markets are much smaller in value. In 2012, the U.S. acute and chronic pain market produced revenues of $20.5 billion, with opioids ($8.4 billion) and NSAIDs ($8.2 billion) providing the dominant segments. The most extensively used opioid is hydocodone with over half of the 250 million opioid prescriptions written for combinations of hydrocodone and acetaminophen such as Vicodin. Both opioid and NSAID market segments are dominated by generic products with OxyContin ($2.9 billion) and Celebrex ($1.75 billion) as the dominant branded products in these respective segments. Local anesthetics, antidepressants and anticonvulsants account for the remainder of this market, with generics dominant in each case. In Japan and especially in Europe, the pain market segments are dominated by generic products with a greater usage of NSAIDs and much lower usage of opioids than the U.S. In Europe, Celebrex sales were only $161 million while Grünenthal's tramadol-based formulations Zaldiar and Tramal produced revenues of $300 million, with other branded products producing modest revenues. In Japan, opioids accounted for just 26% of the market ($1.1 billion), but there is a more extensive use of both oral and topical NSAIDs. The latter segment is dominated by Hisamitsu's Mohrus products, with collective sales of $1.1 billion and Daiichi Sankyo's Loxonin ($780 million), while Astellas' Celecox ($490 million) is the leading oral NSAID. Three discrete, but smaller, pain segments are those of neuropathic pain, fibromyalgia and migraine. In the U.S., the value of the neuropathic pain segment was $2.7 billion in 2012, which was dominated by sales of Pfizer's Lyrica ($920 million) and Endo's Lidoderm ($900 million). Use of Eli Lilly's Cymbalta and generic gabapentin accounted for $660 million revenues. Lyrica ($840 million) is the dominant product in the European market, worth $1.8 billion in 2012, while Cymbalta is only approved to treat diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Lyrica, with sales of $450 million, also dominates the $1.7 billion Japanese market segment with Cymbalta not approved until February 2012. 2013 TriMark Publications, LLC. All rights reserved.
