Beta-adrenergic receptor antagonists, also known as beta-blockers, work by competitively binding to beta-adrenergic receptors on target cells. This binding prevents the activation of these receptors by endogenous catecholamines such as epinephrine and norepinephrine. Consequently, beta-blockers reduce the effects of sympathetic stimulation, leading to decreased heart rate, reduced contractility, and lowered blood pressure. These are used in hypertension, arrhythmia, diabetic macular edema, asthma, glaucoma, and other diseases. An increase in the prevalence of hypertension and glaucoma is expected to boost the beta-adrenergic receptor antagonist revenue over the forecast years. For instance, according to WHO, in the USA, around 3 million people have glaucoma and out of this population, 50 percent don’t know they have the disease. Companies such as Abbvie, Novartis, Eli Lilly, Senju, ACG Biologics, Baxter Healthcare, Chong Kun Dang, Ligand, Novelion, Otsuka, Santen, Whitecap Biosci, Sophia Laboratories currently provide treatment for hypertension, arrhythmia, glaucoma, and many related diseases. Visken is one of the prominent drugs by AbbVie which is being used to treat high blood pressure and prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Apart from that, in the parenteral segment, Helios ocular insert by AbbVie is extensively used in the treatment of glaucoma. Moreover, many companies are coming up with new molecules in this space. For instance, Novelion is one such company that is currently conducting a clinical trial of the drug QLT091568 for the treatment of glaucoma, ocular hypertension, and pigment-dispersion syndrome.

Clinical Activity and Development of Beta-Adrenergic Receptor Antagonist

In the beta-adrenergic receptor antagonist space, approximately 15 companies are focusing on 307 disease indications and right now about 162 clinical trials are being conducted in this category of drugs. For instance,

As of June 2023, Amgen is currently conducting a Phase 1, open-label drug-drug interaction study to investigate the effect of Rocatinlimab(AMG 451) on the pharmacokinetics of multiple CYP450 substrates(such as metoprolol and carvedilol) in patients with moderate to severe atopic dermatitis.

As of May 2023, Menarini is recruiting for an open-label, multicenter, multinational, interventional phase IV clinical trial to assess the efficacy and safety of the extemporaneous combination of Nebivolol and Ramipril in hypertensive patients- Artemisia study.

Target Indication Analysis of Beta-Adrenergic Receptor Antagonist

The beta-adrenergic receptor blocker is used in the treatment of hypertension, arrhythmia, diabetic macular edema, asthma, glaucoma, and other diseases. According to the World Health Organization, there are more than 700 million people with untreated hypertension and over one billion people with hypertension (82% of all people with hypertension in the world) lived in low- and middle-income countries. Primarily, Beta-adrenergic receptor antagonists are extensively used in the treatment of eye diseases. For instance, Bimatoprost is one drug by Abbvie which is used to treat Glaucoma and drain the ocular fluid thereby reducing the intraocular pressure. In the treatment of heart failure and high blood pressure, beta-adrenergic receptor antagonists such as Dilatrend SR are used widely. Through research and development, the indications in which beta-adrenergic receptor antagonists can be used are getting expanded. For instance, according to a PubMed publication of March 2020, among all beta blockers, long-term atenolol use is associated with reduced prostate cancer-specific mortality.
