Key Trends and Analysis of the B-Cell Maturation Antigen (BCMA) Targeted Therapies Market:
Increasing recurrence of multiple myeloma has been a major obstacle.  According to the National Cancer Institute, in 2016, around 75,000 patients globally were recorded to be suffering from relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma, with a relative survival rate of 5 years. B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA) has emerged as a very selective antigen to be targeted for the treatment of multiple myeloma. It possess co-immunoprecipitation property with a master transcription factor (IRF-4) that are mediated for myeloma cell survival. This suggests the potential effect of BCMA in oncogenesis, making it a choice of therapy for multiple myeloma treatment.

Market players are actively involved in the development of immunotherapies targeting BCMA for the treatment of multiple myeloma.  These therapies include chimeric antigen receptor T cells, antibody-drug conjugate, and bispecific antibodies. Furthermore, patients undergoing existing drug therapies are prone to the risk of relapse. The robust pipeline therapies for treatment of multiple myeloma is expected to boost growth of the B-cell maturation Antigen (BCMA) targeted therapies market. B-cell maturation antigen targeted therapy, which primarily addresses this concern, is expected to gain rapid traction.
