Major depressive disorder (MDD) is one of the most common psychiatric diseases worldwide. The MDD market is a crowded and competitive market, with more than 30 marketed products available for the treatment of patients with MDD. The depression market is about to enter a dynamic phase with imminent patent expiries for top selling products, such as Eli Lilly's Cymbalta, and Otsuka/BMS's Abilify, along with the recent launch of the multimodal antidepressant, Lundbeck/Takeda's Brintellix, in January 2014, and the potential introduction of seven promising late-stage pipeline products into the market during the forecast period, from 2013 to 2023.
Lexapro (escitalopram) is an SSRI that was developed by Lundbeck; it initially gained marketing approval for MDD in 2002 in the US. Lexapro is the S-enantiomer of citalopram, an SSRI that was also developed by Lundbeck, which first became available in 1989. Lexapro acts by binding with high affinity to serotonin (5-HT), thereby inhibiting serotonin reuptake; this results in the higher levels of serotonin that are believed to exert antidepressant effects.
