Though neurologists have powerful options to treat multiple sclerosis, the HCPs surveyed for Multiple Sclerosis Unmet Needs identify key market gaps in the current clinical landscape. These market gaps are what lead to some significant ambivalence among HCPs about their overall treatment armamentarium.
While current multiple sclerosis medications meet neurologists’ highest priority needs, such as efficacy and safety. Some, however, are just barely doing so. Clinical attributes such as market access for critical drugs and manufacturer support leave some neurologists wanting better solutions. Additionally, dosing and tolerability for current multiple sclerosis treatments leave some neurologists waiting on new alternatives.
The market insights contained in Multiple Sclerosis Unmet Needs emphasize the biggest MS market gaps and identify current pipeline therapies that aim to fulfill neurologists’ unmet needs. This strategy guide also identifies which pipeline therapies will compete most significantly against existing treatments within these areas of highest clinical need.

Strategic Questions Answered about Multiple Sclerosis Medications Gaps
- Physician Satisfaction: How satisfied are physicians with the current multiple sclerosis treatment armamentarium?
- Gap Analysis: Where are the biggest unmet needs among current treatments in efficacy, safety, dosing, tolerability, access, and support?
- Pipeline Expectations: How do neurologists expect pipeline therapies to fill current gaps in efficacy, safety, dosing, tolerability, access, and support?
Summary of Strategic Insights around Multiple Sclerosis Medications Gaps
- While access and support are the least important clinical attributes, they are also the attributes with the highest rates of dissatisfaction. Neuros perceive Tecfidera as among the best in both access and support.
- Evobrutinib is the most recognizable MS pipeline therapy. Neuros expect its best attributes to be efficacy and safety, giving it an advantage in an efficacy-driven MS paradigm.
- Neuros who are familiar with Tolebrutinib expect it to also compete on efficacy, followed by dosing. However, as with any pipeline product, Neuros have doubts about access.
