Current and Future Treatment Opportunities in the Psychological Disorders Landscape

This year has already seen several newsworthy developments for psychological disorders. In March, the FDA gave Sage Therapeutics’ Zulresso the nod for postpartum depression (PPD). But then in July, Intra-Cellular’s shares crashed 25% after the FDA review date for its schizophrenia drug lumateperone was delayed. The remainder of the second half and the start of 2020 look just as busy in terms of drug trial readouts, approvals and market launches in this therapeutic area.

During our Psychiatry Paradigm webinar, Senior Reporter Shuan Sim will discuss what his investigative reporting has turned up on future, high-impact drug development events in depression, schizophrenia, dementia-related psychosis and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). For example, despite Zulresso’s approval, Shuan reported that experts were unconvinced about payer coverage. The webinar will also dive into Sage’s other depression therapy, SAGE-217, as well as Minerva’s MIN-117 and Axsome’s AXS-05.

In the schizophrenia realm, Minerva is taken to task by experts, this time for its MIN-101. Similarly, Noven’s 2020 launch target for transdermal asenapine came under scrutiny. The webinar will also discuss expectations for Acadia’s Nuplazid Phase III in dementia-related psychosis and uptake potential of Supernus’ SPN-810 in ADHD.

During the webinar, Jennifer C. Smith-Parker, GlobalData’s Senior Editor, will moderate the discussion and the audience Q&A session following the presentation.
