Obesity Therapeutics To 2019 – Safety Concerns Hinder Drug P
Two anti-obesity drugs were approved in June and July 2012, and GBI Research believes that only one, Vivus’ Qsymia, has a strong enough safety and efficacy (average placebo-adjusted weight loss of 5kg at the medium dose) profile to make a significant impact on the market, providing it is proven safe in long-term-use studies. If proven safe, GBI Research expects the sales of Qsymia and other drugs expected to be approved over the forecast period to increase the market size to $2.7 billion. Although moderate, this is significantly below the market potential given the size of the prevalence population. Optimally safe and effective anti-obesity drugs which overcome healthcare professionals’ negative opinions will have to be developed if the size of the market is ever to reflect the prevalence of obesity.
