									    Advances in Ion Channel Drug Discovery

    Approximately 13% of approved drugs have mechanisms involving the modulation of ion
    channel activity, which makes ion channels the second-largest mechanistic class of
    marketed compounds. Currently approved drugs address important disease areas including
    diabetes, epilepsy, hypertension, cardiac arrhythmia, anxiety, and pain.

    Approximately 35% of agents in development have big pharma sponsorship, with the
    remaining 65% under development by smaller biotech. CNS indications account for 45% of
    development programs. Agents in late-stage development include several first-in-class
    agents acting at the cystic fibrosis transmembrane regulator, and new NMDA and AMPA

    Earlier-stage programs focus on selective Nav blockers (following on from genetic validation
    of Nav1.7 involvement in pain), subtype-selective NMDA and AMPA blockers, and a large
    number of TRP family members for a variety of indications.
