Launch of Targeted Agents and Increased Use of Maintenance Therapy Will Drive the Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer Drug Market to Nearly Triple to Almost $10 Billion in 2018
Date:6/29/2009

Emerging Agents from Pfizer, AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline, Bayer/Onyx and Boehringer Ingelheim, and Increased Use of Existing Agents from Eli Lilly and Roche Will Drive Growth, According to a New Report from Decision Resources

WALTHAM, Mass., June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms for pharmaceutical and healthcare issues, finds that the launch of targeted agents as well as increased use of existing agents in the maintenance setting will drive the non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) drug market to nearly triple from $3.5 billion in 2008 to almost $10 billion in 2018 in the United States, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom and Japan.

The new Pharmacor report entitled Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer finds that, through 2013, market growth will be driven by the launch of targeted agents such as Pfizer's figitumumab as a first-line treatment for advanced NSCLC as well as the emergence of AstraZeneca's Zactima, Bayer/Onyx's Nexavar and Boehringer Ingelheim's Tovok as second-line and subsequent-line options. Additionally, from 2013 to 2018, Roche/Chugai's Avastin -- which is already approved in the first-line setting for advanced disease -- and GlaxoSmithKline's MAGE-A3 will be approved as much-needed options in the adjuvant setting for NSCLC.

The market will be further driven by increased use of maintenance therapy involving premium-priced agents such as Eli Lilly's Alimta, OSI/Roche/Chugai's Tarceva, Avastin and figitumumab through 2018, according to the report. Although maintenance treatment has not been used to a high degree in NSCLC to date, recent Phase III clinical trial results indicate that there is a place for this practice in the treatment of advanced disease.

Owing to sales of Eli Lilly's Alimta and Gemzar, Roche/Chugai's Avastin and OSI/Roche/Chugai's Tarceva, Eli Lilly and Roche dominated the NSCLC landscape
