Rise of Epigenetic Drugs Development

Epigenetic Drugs are now actively developed by many companies and R&D centres. Currently, there are approved or under investigation drugs for almost each protein family of epigenetic regulators.

On the graph, you can see epigenetic regulators under investigation or approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), according to protein family.


Eleven epigenetic agents are currently available for standard-of-care treatment: 

  • Three DNMT inhibitors (azacitidine, decitabine, hydralazine)

  • Five HDAC inhibitors (belinostat, panobinostat, vorinostat, romidepsin, chidamide, the last one approved only in China)

  • Two IDH inhibitors (enasidenib, ivosidenib)

  • One HMTi - EZH2 inhibitor (tazemetostat) 


Many more inhibitors of writers, erasers, and readers are in development.

Main Developers of Epigenetic Drugs

Almost every big pharmaceutical company has an epigenetic drug in its portfolio -- approved or in clinical trials. However, some companies are focused more on some specific epigenetic targets than others.
