May 12 - Surfing the CNS Pipeline: Ripples, Swells, or Waves

While media attention tends to be focused upon CNS clinical misses, particularly when they involve Alzheimer’s disease modifying therapies, several CNS programs have recently generated data that portend paradigm shifts in the treatment of diseases with significant unmet need. Novel treatments have shown proof-of-concept and more in Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Super-Refractory Status Epilepticus, Rett Syndrome, Treatment-Resistant Depression, Progressive MS, and rare pediatric epilepsies. Looking forward, there are additional clinical-stage programs that promise to change the standard of care and reset the bar for compounds that follow (e.g., those of GW Pharma, Alder Pharma, AveXis, Quartet Medicine, Wave Life Sciences). This is in contrast to some high-profile programs which seem more likely to be additions to the current and still marginal standard of care than true clinical breakthroughs.
