Schizophrenia is a persistent long-term brain disorder that causes severe, debilitating psychotic episodes. Its core symptoms, auditory or visual hallucinations, are often accompanied by fixed, false, and often paranoid beliefs, called delusions. These two features are often combined with learning and cognitive deficits. WHO experts have estimated that roughly 24 million people are affected by schizophrenia worldwide. While the arrival of atypical antipsychotics has greatly expanded pharmacologic treatment options over the past two decades, the current drug market does not treat the negative and cognitive symptoms that are associated with the disease. GlobalData expects that the growing popularity of long-acting injectable (LAI) antipsychotics, along with the arrival of novel treatments that achieve higher efficacy in negative- and cognitive-predominant patients, will serve to stimulate growth in the marketplace over the forecast period. Country-specific treatment recommendations and policy implementation will be an essential metric for determining future mental health services in the 7MM.
Latuda is a mixed D2/5-HT2A receptor antagonist with additional activity on 5-HT7 receptors. Unlike Fanapt, Latuda does not act on muscarinic or histaminergic receptors, and is thus associated with lower risks of weight gain and metabolic disturbances. Latuda is promoted as a drug that is pro-cognitive in nature and may help to relieve some of the cognitive deficits in schizophrenic patients.
