AstraZeneca's Zactima to Earn Almost Five Percent Patient Share in the Treatment of Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer by 2016
Date:3/20/2008

Physicians Indicate that Most Promising Emerging Therapies Will Not Match the Current Gold-Standard Avastin/Taxol/Paraplatin Regimen's Efficacy,

According to a New Report from Decision Resources

WALTHAM, Mass., March 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms for pharmaceutical and healthcare issues, finds that the emerging drug Zactima from AstraZeneca will earn 4.7 percent patient share in the treatment of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) by 2016. Surveyed oncologists indicate that they would prescribe Zactima to 30 percent of their patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer. Also, 38 percent of the physicians surveyed indicate they will use Zactima as an adjunct to current therapy rather than as a replacement. Zactima is forecasted to launch in 2008 in the United States and Europe and in 2010 in Japan.

According to the new report entitled Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer (Advanced): Current Gold-Standard Therapy Continues to Be Most Efficacious; physicians indicate that the most promising emerging therapies for the treatment of non-small-cell lung cancer will not match the current gold- standard regimen comprising Roche/Genentech/Chugai's Avastin, Bristol-Myers Squibb's Taxol, and Bristol-Myers Squibb's Paraplatin.

"Although some therapies in development for advanced NSCLC hold promise, most have efficacy, safety and tolerability, and/or delivery features that merit inferior scores compared with the Avastin/Taxol/Paraplatin regimen," said Andrew Merron, Ph.D., analyst at Decision Resources. "A therapy's effect on overall survival is the attribute that most influences prescribing decisions in advanced non-small-cell lung cancer. Data and the opinions of interviewed thought leaders indicate that Avastin/Taxol/Paraplatin has advantages over the sales-leading combination of Sanofi-Aventis's Taxotere and Bristol-Myers Squibb's Platinol-AQ on overall survival."
