AML definition: Mellalta MeetsAcute myeloid leukemia (AML) and its management are a major health and economic burden globally. AML cases are on the rise across regions and countries. With over 41,090 cases in 2023 in G7 (US, EU5 and Japan) regions, it is expected to grow with a CAGR of 0.5% by 2033.

There were no approved treatments for decades for acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) other than chemotherapies. The past six years has witnessed the approval of eleven new therapies for AML; Rydapt / midostaurin (Novartis), Vyxeos (CPX-351) / cytarabine/daunorubicin liposomal formulation (Jazz, Nippon Shinyaku), Idhifa / enasidenib (BMS, Servier), Mylotarg / gemtuzumab ozogamicin (UCB, PDL, Pfizer), Tibsovo / ivosidenib (Servier), Venclexta / venetoclax (Roche, AbbVie), Xospata / gilteritinib (Astellas), Daurismo / glasdegib (Pfizer), Vanflyta / quizartinib (Daiichi Sankyo), Onureg (azacitidine oral) and Rezlidhia / olutasidenib (Forma Therapeutics).

How are these agents faring on the market so far and will more personalised treatments follow their lead? All the drugs above form part of a rich pipeline, but which drugs stand out to key opinion leaders (KOLs)? Learn how AML’s market is evolving, and how our analyst expects developers to differentiate their pipeline therapies in the Slide Deck: Acute Myeloid Leukaemia.

We have also interviewed KOLs and they have provided their candid views on the potential of existing and upcoming molecules in the first line and second-line therapies in fit and unfit patient groups.

Mellalta Meets performed a Competitive Landscape and Competitive Intelligence study in the first quarter of 2023.  This research study aimed to analyze the dynamics of the Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) market in the G7 regions, identify current treatment trends, explore disruptive events, and highlight critical opportunities driving the AML market.

Key findings:

  1. AML and its management pose a significant health and economic burden globally, with rising cases across regions and countries. In the G7 regions (US, EU5, and Japan), there were over 41,090 cases in 2023, projected to grow at a CAGR of 0.5% by 2033.
  2. High unmet needs in AML contribute to a competitive environment in research and development activities and new drug launches. Key unmet needs identified by experts and Key Opinion Leaders include high treatment costs, minimal residual disease (MRD) detection, high relapse rates, and unresponsiveness in the TP53 mutant patient population.
  3. Over the years, numerous innovative drugs have been approved, offering new treatment options for AML patients. Treatment guidelines have also evolved to maximize the benefits of these treatments.
  4. The standard of care for AML has traditionally been 7+3 therapy (cytarabine for 7 days + anthracycline for 3 days). However, recent drug approvals have focused on genetic alterations or tumor markers on AML cells, leading to targeted therapies in both frontline and relapsed/refractory settings for unfit patient groups.
  5. Despite advancements, AML remains a challenging area for research and development, necessitating novel targeted therapies for relapsed/refractory AML. There is potential for drug developers to pursue novel biomarker strategies for low-intensity and effective treatments, including expedited approval through single-arm studies.
  6. The current sales opportunity in AML focuses on three drugs (FLT3, IDH1, and IDH2 inhibitors) addressing approximately half of relapsed/refractory AML patients, leaving the remaining 50% in need of targeted therapies. Efforts are underway to expand the market by targeting additional biomarkers such as TP53 mutations, NPM1 mutations, and KMT2A rearrangements.
  7. As treatment options increase, spending levels have become a focal point worldwide, with projected growth expected to continue over the next five years. The AML treatment market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 9.5%, reaching USD $7.4 billion by 2033. This growth will be driven by increased uptake of recently approved therapies and the anticipated approval of six treatments considered in the forecast. Future opportunities for drug developers lie in treatment regimens targeting larger portions of the AML population, indicating a fragmented market.

  13. Shedding light on the current status and potential of Menin inhibitors, such as revumenib (SNDX-5613) and ziftomenib (KO-539). The promising data supporting their use in AML.
  14. What are the new mechanisms that are being explored? What are the potentially actionable targets?

Patients that are really elderly unfit and I think the TP53 mutant patient population is really a problem for us because they don’t respond to any of our targeted therapies. And we are seeing an increasing number of those patients who are failing all of our treatment regiments on a regular basis. I think many of us are moving away from seven plus three induction therapy, but it is still curative for some of our patients.”Haematologist, Department of Hematology, Cardiff University, UK
