Pharmaceutical companies are “racing” to gain regulatory approval for their drugs to serve the virtually untapped Fibromyalgia market, according to an industry update from Reuters news dated January 7, 2007.
The contenders “are looking to seize on a market now dominated by older anti-depressants as well as painkillers and other drugs,” the report states. These competitors are mostly major players – the likes of Pfizer, Eli Lilly, and Forest Laboratories Inc. And they have their eyes on a market that the research firm Decision Resources predicts will reach $1 billion in less than a decade.
