Japan biosimilar market will enter new phase of biosimilars with first 'mab' approval expected in 2014. This approval (Remicade- FY03/13A sales ¥73.5, infiximab from Nippon Kayaku by YE 14) will be marked as a milestone development because - 1.) it will open antibody biosimilar market in Japan, and 2.) the approval will be based largely from overseas data, says the report Therapeutic Class Overview : Emergence Of Biogenerics Era In Japan - It's Time to Welcome Antibody Biosimilars of Foreign Origins Soon available at http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/275199-therapeutic-class-overview-emergence-of-biogenerics-era-in-japan-its-time-to-welcome-antibody-biosimilars-of-foreign-origins-soon.html .
~ ¥200b worth of biologic products is going off patent by 2015 and this value exceeds ~ ¥400b if we include products that will see their patent expiries by 2021 in Japan (Table 1). There are number of reasons to believe that follow-on-biologics or biosimilars will not replicate the lethargic growth story of generic - preliminary because the much higher cost of biologic therapy brings significant burden on patients despite relatively low co-pay in Japan - and this will push individuals and DPC Hospitals to use biogeneric products to a greater extent unlike generic drugs. Secondly, the regulatory supports are going to be stringent enough to ensure quality measures and minimizing the 'not made in Japan' factor from prescriber's and user's mindsets.
Anticipating this opportunity and favorable macro forces as compared to generics, a number of companies aim to exploit this - Japan has seen a flood like consolidation and partnering activities in biosimilar space (Table 2, Annexure I). While a dozen+ companies have already laid their road map for biosimilars space, at this time we see Sandoz, JCR, Meiji Seika Pharma, Fuji Film Kyowa Kirin Biologics, Nippon Kayaku, Nichi Iko, Yoshindo etc. to be amongst the key players in biogenerics business in Japan.
It is also noteworthy that large global player, which currently look silent in Japan.
In this piece, we attempt to evaluate the future competitive landscape (Table 3) of the Biosimilars space in Japan, assess the overall attractiveness of the same, and try to identify the key determinates to succeed in this space. At this point, we do not arrive at any investment recommendations from the sector

In recent past approval and launch of various newer treatment options like Xtandi (Enzalutamide, Astellas/Medivation), Zytiga (Abiraterone acetate, JNJ), Jevtana (Cabazitaxel, Sanofi), & Xofigo (radium Ra 223, Boehringer Ingelheim) has evolved the treatment paradigm of treating late stage prostate cancer. In coming years, the report Therapeutic Class Overview: Newer Oral Anti Androgens - Expanding Role in the treatment Paradigm of Prostate Cancer (http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/275200-therapeutic-class-overview-newer-oral-anti-androgens-expanding-role-in-the-treatment-paradigm-of-prostate-cancer.html ) expects this to repeat in early stage prostate cancer treatment (nmCRPC, before Prostectomy) due to launch of newer antiandrogens in this setting. Longer duration of therapy and high prevalence makes this earlier setting market more lucrative and bigger for newer options than late stage if they succeed.
In coming years, the research forecasts second generation antiandrogens (Androgen synthesis inhibitors/Androgen receptor inhibitors, Xtandi, ARN-509, ODM-021, Zytiga, TAK-700, TOK-001) to replace them and expand their use beyond current levels in nmCRPC (non metastatic Castrate resistance Prostate cancer) patients and also in pre-prostectomy (Chart 3). This newer agents will expand these markets atleast by $10b ($6b in pre prostectomy, $4b nmCRPC) if get success.
TAK-700 (Takeda), ARN-509 (JNJ) and Xtandi are strong candidates to get success in early stage prostate cancer and in next two years PhIII clinical data from EL-04, PROSPER and SPARTAN study, will decide who will lead this market. While TAK-700 has a first launch advantage it is important to see how ARN-509, compete to Xtandi in earlier setting and in terms of safety for penetrating in early prostate cancer market. Other than these PhIII studies, Xtandi PhII data from neoadjuvant PC and ARN-509 data in preprostectomy patients will decide their use in earlier setting. This report estimates $2.8b peak sales for Xtandi in mCRPC setting, while in earlier setting it has potential to generate atleast ~$2b if it gets success in PROSPER , STRIVE, TERRAIN and neoadjuvant study.
