Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a rare and heterogeneous blood cancer with a poor overall prognosis. It affects predominantly older adults with a median age at diagnosis of 66 years. The standard therapy for acute myeloid leukemia has not changed meaningfully for the past four decades. Most patients with newly diagnosed AML are offered the combination of standard-dose cytarabine with an anthracycline (daunorubicin or idarubicin) regimen, whereas those with adverse-risk disease are offered allogeneic stem-cell transplant (SCT) in first remission. The treatment of AML is divided into categories based on their mechanisms of action: cytotoxic agents, small-molecule inhibitors, and targeted therapies. These drug candidates range from cytotoxic chemotherapies, targeted small-molecule inhibitors, and monoclonal antibodies. Currently available hypomethylating agents azacitidine and decitabine are FDA-approved for use in the United States. Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) or FLT3 inhibitors, such as midostaurin (Rydapt) were developed as targeted therapies that interferes with aberrant tyrosine kinase activation in malignant cells. There are several promising drug such as chemotherapy drugs, fixed-combination drugs and kinase inhibitor candidates are currently in the pipeline.
The global acute myeloid leukemia drugs market segmentation is based on drug type – hypomethylating agents – Vidaza (azacitidine), Dacogen (decitabine), Cytarabine-based chemotherapy drugs, others; pipeline analysis (phase III drugs) – chemotherapy drugs, Vyxeos (fixed-combination drugs: Daunorubicin and Cytarabine); and kinase inhibitors (Midostaurin, Quizartinib).
