Takeda’s Pipeline Has Potential to Contribute Significantly to Revenue Growth Over Next Decade

Share

As part of its Wave 1 Pipeline Market Opportunity Call, Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (TSE:4502/NYSE:TAK) (“Takeda”) provided an update on its pipeline portfolio, which has the potential to contribute significantly to revenue growth for the company over the next decade. The company also shared its PTS adjusted2 view for FY2019-FY2030 revenue CAGR (low single-digit), as well as its goal for FY2019-FY2030 revenue CAGR (mid-single-digit), amounting to JPY5 trillion ($47 billion) by FY2030.3

The majority of this revenue growth is expected to come from the company’s Wave 1 pipeline, which includes 12 unique New Molecular Entities (NMEs), representing potential best-in-class/first-in-class therapies, and its existing 14 global brands. Of the Wave 1 programs, five have received Breakthrough Therapy designation and three were granted fast track designation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In addition, one program received designation under the SAKIGAKE Designation System by the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare and another program was the first breakthrough designation granted by the China Food and Drug Administration to a multinational biopharmaceutical company.

“Our vision is to discover and deliver life-transforming treatments guided by our commitment to patients, our people and the planet,” said Christophe Weber, Takeda president and chief executive officer. “Our Wave 1 pipeline is reflective of the high bar we have set to focus solely on finding treatments, preventions and cures for targeted populations with high unmet medical needs, and bringing them to patients around the world.”

During the call, Takeda provided a deep dive into TAK-721, which has the potential to be the first FDA-approved agent for the treatment of eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), and TAK-003, which is a live attenuated tetravalent vaccine for prevention of dengue disease. In addition, the company highlighted the sustained momentum of global brands such as Entyvio®, and the commercial capabilities that will help to ensure launch success.

Bringing a Highly Innovative Pipeline to Patients for Sustained Growth

Takeda has built a world-class, state-of-the-art R&D engine and has generated a diverse and dynamic pipeline of approximately 40 clinical-stage new molecular entities that is beginning to deliver. All 12 Wave 1 pipeline NMEs have anticipated near-term late-development milestones, pivotal data readouts or pivotal study starts. Takeda has expanded its global capabilities including data insights and analytics, patient services, and evidence generation to enhance commercial excellence for delivering these life-transforming therapies to patients around the world.

Beyond the Wave 1 pipeline, Takeda’s research engine, comprised of internal research capabilities and more than 200 active partnerships, is rapidly advancing a steady stream of next-generation therapies in Wave 2 of our pipeline that will provide sustained growth in FY2025 and beyond. These Wave 2 pipeline programs are designed to provide transformative or curative potential for targeted populations with high unmet need across core therapeutic areas. They are based on targets with strong human validation, represent diverse modalities and leverage new platform capabilities in cell therapy, gene therapy and data sciences.

ABOUT TAK-721 and TAK-003

TAK-721 (budesonide oral suspension)
Takeda’s TAK-721 is a mucoadherent, topical, viscous formulation of budesonide, formulated specifically as an investigational treatment for (EoE). If approved, TAK-721 will be the first FDA-approved treatment for EoE; Takeda plans to use the trade name Eohilia (budesonide oral suspension). To date, it has received both Breakthrough Therapy designation and Orphan Drug designation from the FDA. Its development program is the first and largest EoE Phase 3 clinical trial program in the U.S. to report results, and includes the pivotal Phase 3 trials ORBIT1 and ORBIT2 which investigated the safety and efficacy of TAK-721 in adolescent and adult patients (11 to 55 years of age) with EoE. Breakthrough Therapy designation and Orphan Drug designation do not guarantee approval or commercial availability.

TAK-003
Takeda's tetravalent dengue vaccine candidate (TAK-003) has the potential to help address the massive global burden of dengue including key priorities for dengue control such as protection of seronegative individuals (persons not previously exposed to dengue) and prevention of hospitalization. TAK-003 is based on a live-attenuated dengue serotype 2 virus, which provides the genetic “backbone” for all four vaccine viruses. The TAK-003 development program includes the pivotal Phase 3 Tetravalent Immunization against Dengue Efficacy Study (TIDES), a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of two doses of TAK-003 in the prevention of laboratory-confirmed symptomatic dengue fever of any severity and due to any of the four dengue virus serotypes in children and adolescents. The TIDES trial is continuing, and safety and efficacy will be assessed over a total of four and a half years. Dengue is the fastest spreading mosquito-borne viral disease and was recognized by WHO to be one of the top ten threats to global health in 2019.

Takeda plans to host part 2 of the Wave 1 pipeline update on April 6, 2021 (date subject to change). This will include a deep dive into TAK-925/994, maribavir and an update on oncology assets.
