Drug candidates Zygel (cannabidiol) and Lenabasum are being developed by US biopharmaceutical companies Zynerba Pharma and Corbus Pharma, respectively, and are expected to launch in the US and 5EU markets in 2021.

Magdalene Crabbe, Pharmaceutical Analyst at GlobalData, comments:

“Both Zygel and Lenabasum were granted fast track and orphan drug designation by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and are expected to generate sales of $417m and $771m in 2025, respectively. Contributing to the high sales figures for these late-stage pipeline agents is the fact that Zygel and Lenabasum are both being developed to treat multiple disorders from a variety of therapy areas, including genetic disorders, musculoskeletal conditions, and autoimmune diseases.”
