Meds Pipeline Monitor 2019

Meds Pipeline Monitor (MPM) is a horizon scanning report that features a selection of new medicines in the late stages of clinical evaluation that may have a significant impact on future clinical practice and drug spending in Canada.

Medicines in Phase III clinical trials or in pre-registration with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are considered as candidates if they have the potential to address an unmet therapeutic need, offer a novel mechanism or therapeutic benefit over existing therapies, or treat a serious condition. The final selection features medicines that treat a broad range of therapeutic areas. In addition to identifying new medicines for inclusion in the list, this edition monitors the medicines featured in the 2018 Meds Pipeline Monitor to report on changes to their status in the pipeline. A new section focused on Canada highlights potentially significant medicines currently under review by Health Canada.

The report collects data from two main sources: GlobalData’s Healthcare database is used to identify medicines currently undergoing clinical evaluation, while Health Canada’s Drug and Health Product Submissions Under Review list provides information on new medicines under assessment in Canada.

Together with its companion publication Meds Entry Watch, this report series monitors the continuum of new and emerging medicines in Canada and internationally, providing key information to decision makers, researchers, patients, and clinicians, among other stakeholders.
