Pipeline Plus

Despite failures in late-phase trials, the pipeline of medications for Alzheimer’s disease is robust as companies hope to be the first to bring an effective therapy to market. We review several investigational agents in late-stage development.
Upcoming antibacterial agents in the pipeline appear promising, but it is difficult to predict their long-term durability. This article focuses on investigational agents that target resistant gram-negative organisms commonly found in the health care setting.
We review the immunomodulatory agents in development for systemic lupus erythematosus, a relatively uncommon disorder affecting women of childbearing age.
We present immunotherapies, biosimilars, and molecular-targeted agents in late-stage development for patients with advanced colorectal cancer.
We present several novel drugs in development for enhancing cognition, treating negative symptoms, and providing improved options for treatment-resistant patients. Drug makers aim to enhance safety profiles and increase patient compliance to therapy.
Despite the many medications already available, patients with heart failure often have disease exacerbations, reduced quality of life, and increased mortality, highlighting the need for new treatment approaches. We explore drugs currently in development.
Analysts have identified several unmet needs in the HIV therapy marketplace. We present the promising candidates in late-stage clinical development or FDA review.
Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) are leading systemic therapies for the treatment of renal cell carcinoma. However, programmed death-1 inhibitors, promising new agents in development, may surpass TKIs as the standard of care in the future.
Psoriasis, a disorder that manifests as a variety of chronic inflammatory skin diseases, affects an estimated 7.4 million Americans. We consider five promising biologic agents poised to enter the psoriasis market for advanced disease by 2019.
Vasculitis, a group of heterogeneous disorders characterized by inflammation and necrosis of the blood vessels, has but one treatment approved by the Food and Drug Administration. However, six novel biologic candidates are in late-stage development.
