Summary

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive condition that is characterized by bradykinesia, muscular rigidity, tremor, and postural instability. As the second most common neurodegenerative disorder, Parkinson’s disease may affect individuals of any age but prevalence is increased with age and it is most common in the elderly. Dopaminergic therapies have been fairly effective in treating bradykinesia, but several unmet needs remain. Some needs will be met during the forecast period from 2012-2022, while others, such as the need for disease-modifying drugs, will remain. GlobalData expects that advancements will be made in levodopa administration and that four new molecular entities will be introduced to the market by 2022, these factors along with increased patient numbers from an aging population will drive the market during the forecast period.

The anti-Parkinsonian effect of apomorphine was first discovered in 1951. Its use was limited due to severe side effects such as nausea, vomiting, postural hypotension, and sedation, which was partially alleviated with use of the dopamine antagonist domperidone (Pietz et al., 1998). In addition, oral use is associated with nephrotoxicity (Ostergaard et al., 1995). It was developed as a self-injectable pen or continuous infusion by Britannia Pharmaceuticals and Laboratoire Aguettant under the name Apo-go, later renamed Apokyn in the US and Japan.
