GBI Research, leading business intelligence provider, has released its latest research report, entitled Protein and Peptide-based Therapeutics Trends in Drug Discovery and Development". Over the last decade, protein and peptide-based therapeutics have attracted more and more attention in the pharmaceutical industry. These types of molecules exert a high level of specificity on their respective molecular targets, making them highly advantageous and allowing them to be exploited therapeutically.

This report provides an overview of the targeted indications of current molecules across 22 therapeutic areas, relevant technological developments, the manufacturing processes and the current regulatory environment. In addition, an extensive analysis of the developmental pipeline for all protein and peptide-based therapeutics, excluding antibodies, across 11 therapeutic areas by phase, therapeutic area, route of administration, as well as mechanism of action and cell type/functional target is provided. 

GBI Research has identified a sizable developmental pipeline for protein and peptide-based molecules in the therapeutic areas primarily targeted by these types of molecules, such as Central Nervous System (CNS), cardiovascular, immunology, musculoskeletal diseases, ophthalmology, infectious diseases, dermatology as well as metabolic, hematological, genetic, hormonal and gastrointestinal disorders. Overall, across these therapeutic areas, there are 571 molecules in the discovery, preclinical and clinical stages of development. These compounds have been identified in 953 indication-specific developmental programs, and 629 developmental programs are currently in clinical developmental.

The report also provides an overview of the top 15 licensing deals involving protein and peptide-based molecules since 2005, which are worth $6.9 billion and reflect a growing interest in licensing promising peptide and protein-based therapeutic molecules. They involve a number of major pharmaceutical companies, such as Pfizer, Sanofi, Merck & Co, Bristol-Myers Squibb and Merck Serono.
