Alopecia Areata Pipeline Insights 2024
“Alopecia Areata Pipeline Insight, 2024” report by DelveInsight outlines a comprehensive assessment of the present clinical/non-clinical development activities and growth prospects across the Alopecia Areata Market.

DelveInsight’s “Alopecia Areata Pipeline Insight, 2024,” report provides comprehensive insights about 18+ companies and 20+ pipeline drugs in the Alopecia Areata pipeline landscape. It covers the pipeline drug profiles, including clinical and nonclinical stage products. It also covers the therapeutics assessment by product type, stage, route of administration, and molecule type. It further highlights the inactive pipeline products in this space.

The Alopecia Areata Pipeline report embraces in-depth commercial and clinical assessment of the pipeline products from the pre-clinical developmental phase to the marketed phase. The report also covers a detailed description of the drug, including the mechanism of action of the drug, clinical studies, NDA approvals (if any), and product development activities comprising the technology, collaborations, mergers, acquisition, funding, designations, and other product-related details.

Alopecia Areata Overview

Alopecia areata is a type of non-scarring hair loss that primarily affects hair follicles and nails, with rare involvement of the retinal pigment epithelium. It typically presents as round patches of hair loss. The hair follicle normally has a relative immune privilege, characterized by the suppression of surface molecules needed to present autoantigens to CD8+ T lymphocytes (i.e., MHC class I) and the creation of an inhibitory local signaling environment. The breakdown of this immune privilege is considered a significant factor in the development of AA.

Alopecia Areata Pathophysiology

Alopecia areata is a disorder of the hair follicle cycle, where inflammatory cells attack the hair follicle matrix epithelium undergoing early cortical differentiation (anagen hair follicles). This attack prematurely induces the follicles into the catagen phase. Despite this, hair follicle stem cells remain intact, allowing the hair follicle to regenerate and continue its cycle. The follicles re-enter the anagen phase but do not progress beyond the anagen III/IV phase.

The immune privilege of the hair follicle collapses in alopecia areata, possibly due to proinflammatory signals (e.g., IFN-gamma, substance P) that upregulate MHC class Ia in the hair-follicle epithelium, exposing previously hidden follicle-associated autoantigens to preexisting autoreactive CD8+ T cells. Since only anagen hair follicles are attacked, these autoantigens may be generated and presented only during anagen. The precise trigger for alopecia areata is unknown, but it has been linked to factors such as emotional or physical stress, vaccines, viral infections, and drugs.

Alopecia Areata Treatment Options

Many therapeutic modalities have been used to treat alopecia areata, each with variable efficacy and safety profiles. Unfortunately, none of these treatments is curative or preventive. Additionally, many of these therapeutic agents have not been subjected to randomized, controlled trials, and, except for topical immunotherapy, there are few published studies on long-term outcomes. Common treatments include:

1. Topical Corticosteroids: Often the first line of treatment, especially for mild cases.

2. Intralesional Corticosteroids: Injected directly into the patches of hair loss.

3. Topical Immunotherapy: Involves applying substances like diphencyprone (DPCP) to induce an allergic reaction, which can stimulate hair growth.

4. Systemic Corticosteroids: Used for more severe cases but have significant side effects.

5. Minoxidil: A topical treatment that can promote hair growth.

6. JAK Inhibitors: Emerging treatments that target specific pathways involved in the immune response.

7. Phototherapy: Using ultraviolet light to stimulate hair growth.

Despite these treatments, long-term remission is rare, and continuous management is often required. Research into the underlying mechanisms and potential new treatments is ongoing, aiming to improve outcomes for those affected by this condition.

Alopecia Areata Emerging Drugs Profiles

Alopecia Areata Emerging Drugs

Deuruxolitinib: Concert Pharmaceuticals

Concert Pharmaceuticals is developing deuruxolitinib (CTP-543), an oral inhibitor of Janus kinases JAK1 and JAK2. The FDA has granted CTP-543 breakthrough therapy designation for the treatment of adult patients with moderate to severe alopecia areata and Fast Track designation for the treatment of alopecia areata. The company is evaluating the efficacy and safety of deuruxolitinib in adult patients with moderate to severe alopecia areata in its THRIVE-AA Phase III clinical program. Concert reported positive topline data from the clinical trials. Data from the clinical trials are intended to form the basis of a New Drug Application (NDA) planned to be submitted to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) by the first half of 2023.

EQ101: Equillium

EQ101 is a first-in-class, tri-specific inhibitor of IL-2, IL-9 and IL-15, three inflammatory cytokines implicated in multiple diseases. EQ101 was also shown to be well tolerated with a favorable safety profile with no drug-related SAEs and no dose-limiting toxicities. The drug is currently formulated for intravenous administration, with subcutaneous formulation development underway. It is currently in the Phase II stage of its development in alopecia areata, a dermatological autoimmune disorder.

MAX 40070: Maxinovel Pharmaceuticals

MAX-40070 is a topical JAK/Tyk2 inhibitor developed by Maxinovel. Preclinical studies have shown that topical administration of MAX-40070 could achieve an effective exposure in skin tissue while maintaining low systemic exposure. MAX-40070 has the potential to minimize the systemic side effects of oral JAK inhibitors and eventually demonstrates its high benefit/risk ratio through clinical trials, which may ultimately provide robust evidence to support its more broadly use in treating dermatological autoimmune disorders. Currently, the drug is in Phase I stage of its development for the treatment of Alopecia Areata.
