GIA announces the release of a comprehensive global report on Small Molecule Kinase Inhibitors market. World market for small molecule kinase inhibitor drugs is projected to reach $16.2 billion by the year 2015. This is primarily driven by the rising interest over the potential of kinase inhibitors in effectively blocking, and modifying protein kinase triggered tumor cell metabolism, proliferation, and DNA damage. Strong growth in the future will be led by expansion of treatment indications in both oncology, and non-oncology disease areas.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) June 30, 2009 -- With over 500 identified types of kinase proteins in the human body, its little surprise that these enzymes continue to remain important drug targets for major pharmaceutical drug developers, especially in the oncology space. Given their role in effectively disrupting cell signal pathways, kinase inhibitors are of special interest in the treatment of cancer. The unprecedented success witnessed in patient outcomes with the use of currently commercialized kinase inhibitors, such as, imatinib, among others, has ignited excitement over the untapped potential of this very potent class of drugs. Rising incidences of cancer, and the yet unmet treatment needs offer a strong business case for kinase inhibitors.
The upcoming years are forecast to witness both the strong growth for multi-targeted kinase inhibitors, and the rising popularity of combination drug therapies. Growing incidences of tumor cell resistance to single targeted kinase inhibitor drugs is fingered as the key reason triggering interest in both combination drug therapies, and multi-targeted kinase inhibitors. For instance, growing incidences of resistance to Gleevec, has turned the spotlight on Nexavar, and Sutent, given the potential of these new drugs to offer the much awaited solution to the treatment impasse hitherto encountered.
