Targeted therapies comprise 60% of the top 20 brands in 2011 with Roche’s monoclonal antibody franchise maintaining the top three positions. A potential to demonstrate improved clinical efficacy with reduced off-target toxicity, combined with an ability to demand higher prices, makes this drug class clinically and commercially attractive.

An aging cytotoxic market means that cytotoxic brands are becoming less commercially attractive. In the past few years many of the blockbuster cytotoxics have come off-patent and now face generic erosion. As developers turn their attention toward new targeted therapies the number of new cytotoxics entering the market has decreased.

Antihormonal therapies have high clinical attractiveness, but despite strong sales they are limited to two indications. Effective lifecycle management has ensured that sales remain high despite patent expiries in almost every major market.
