Over the past 15 years, the treatment of hematological malignancies has changed significantly, thanks to the development of targeted therapies. These developments have been based on the growing understanding of the signaling pathways involved in disease pathogenesis. A notable example is the approval of Rituxan in 1997, which is used to treat multiple types of hematological malignancies, including Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Analysis indicates that the current pipeline is following this trend of focusing on innovative, targeted therapies.
The American Cancer Society (ACS) predicts that in 2017 there will be almost 173,000 new cases of leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma, with lymphomas the most prevalent. Due to a degree of crossover between hematological malignancies in terms of their underlying pathophysiology, it is not uncommon for products being developed for this therapy area to have developmental programs testing them across multiple indications.
