DelveInsight’s, “Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis– Pipeline Insight, 2021,” report provides comprehensive insights about 20+ companies and 20+ pipeline drugs in Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis pipeline landscape. It covers the pipeline drug profiles, including clinical and nonclinical stage products. It also covers the therapeutics assessment by product type, stage, route of administration, and molecule type. It further highlights the inactive pipeline products in this space.
Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis Understanding
Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis: Overview
Primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) is characterized by inflammation in the bile ducts (cholangitis) that leads to scarring (sclerosis), narrowing of the ducts, and a buildup of bile in the liver. Early signs and symptoms include extreme tiredness, abdominal pain, and itchiness. As the condition worsens it may cause jaundice, an enlarged spleen, and eventually liver cirrhosis and failure. Other complications may include weight loss, vitamin deficiency, and osteoporosis. Many people with PSC develop other autoimmune conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease, type 1 diabetes, celiac disease, or thyroid disease. PSC is also a risk factor for cancer of the bile ducts (cholangiocarcinoma).
Symptoms of PSC include:
- Itchy skin.
- Extreme tiredness (fatigue)
- Belly pain.
- Yellowing of the skin and eyes, called jaundice.
- Chills and fever from infection of bile ducts
A diagnosis of primary sclerosing cholangitis is made based upon a thorough clinical evaluation, a detailed patient history, identification of characteristic findings, and a variety of specialized tests.
There is no specific, universal treatment for individuals with PSC. Treatment is directed toward the specific symptoms that are apparent in each individual and at slowing the progression of the disorder. Endoscopic surgery to remove blockages and enlarge narrowed bile ducts may be of benefit to help prevent liver deterioration in certain cases. Lost vitamins should be replaced when required to prevent complications related to these deficiencies. Antibiotics may be useful in controlling inflammation or infection. Individuals with PSC are encouraged to follow a normal healthy diet and to avoid alcohol or only have alcohol in small amounts.
- The companies and academics are working to assess challenges and seek opportunities that could influence Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis R&D. The therapies under development are focused on novel approaches to treat/improve Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis.
- In November 2018, Gilead Sciences announced that treatment with GS-9674, an investigational, selective, nonsteroidal farnesoid X receptor (FXR) agonist, led to significant improvements in liver biochemistry and markers of cholestasis in patients with primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC). Data were presented at The Liver Meeting 2018 in San Francisco.
Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis Emerging Drugs Chapters
This segment of the Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.
Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis Emerging Drugs
Cenicriviroc: Tobira Therapeutics
Cenicriviroc (Tobira Therapeutics), or CVC, is an oral, potent immunomodulator that blocks chemokine receptors that can cause liver damage and lead to liver disease.
IMU-838 is a small molecule investigational drug (vidofludimus calcium) under development as an oral tablet formulation for the treatment PSC. Of By inhibiting dihydroorotate dehydrogenase (DHODH), a key enzyme of pyrimidine de novo biosynthesis, metabolically activated T and B immune cells experience metabolic stress, and the release of Th1 and Th17 key cytokines including IL-17A, IL-17F and IFNg is inhibited, thereby reducing inflammation. In preclinical studies of vidofludimus, the active moiety and free acid form of IMU-838, apoptosis (or programmed cell death) was induced in activated T cells, which Immunic believes may also play a crucial role in the activity of the drug by further dampening the inflammatory response.
