MALVERN, Pa., Sept. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Arlington Medical Resources (AMR), a provider of premier market intelligence for the pharmaceutical and diagnostic imaging industries, finds that more than half of all European inpatients who receive anticoagulants during their hospital stay are administered Sanofi-Aventis's Clexane (marketed as Lovenox in the U.S. and France).
The new audit entitled The European Hospital Anticoagulant Market Guide is a comprehensive source for anticoagulant use in European hospitals. Released quarterly, the audit contains detailed clinical data from thousands of hospitalized patients receiving anticoagulants. Survey results are projected to the national level for France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom.
The audit also reveals that surgical venous thromboembolism (VTE) primary prophylaxis accounts for the largest share of inpatient anticoagulant use at 48 percent of all inpatients. However, non-surgical VTE and stroke prophylaxis remains a key area of growth opportunity for companies marketing and developing anticoagulant agents.
The European Hospital Anticoagulant Market Guide is designed to help biopharmaceutical companies quantify targeted patient segments, better understand treatment practices and customers, size commercial opportunity and formulate clinical development strategy.
Besides Clexane, Boehringer Ingelheim's Pradaxa, Bayer's Xarelto and all other anticoagulants used in European hospitals are tracked in this audit.
