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.

Azilect (rasagiline) is a second-generation MAO-B inhibitor, developed by Teva Pharmaceuticals for the treatment of the signs and symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Azilect is approved for use as a monotherapy in early Parkinson’s disease at a once-daily dosage of 1mg, or as an adjunctive therapy to levodopa at 0.5mg or 1mg, as needed, once daily (Azilect package insert, 2012).
