The current trend witnessed by the Global Testicular Cancer Drugs market is combination therapy being used for treating testicular cancer. Several oncologists believe that chemotherapy drugs are most effective when given in combination with radiation therapy and surgery. Cancer cells that are confined locally can be easily treated by surgery or radiation therapy, while cancer cells that have spread to distant sites can be killed by chemotherapy. Therefore, combination therapy helps in completely removing the tumor or destroying the cancerous cells in the patient´s body. The combination therapy is decided depending on the size of the tumor and the risk of recurrence. Moreover, for treatment of testicular cancer, a combination of two or more drugs is usually given. Some of the combinations are BEP, EP (etoposide and cisplatin), and VIP (vinblastine plus ifosfamide and cisplatin).
One of the key drivers is the increasing prevalence of testicular cancer due to a variety of factors such as congenital abnormalities, family history, abnormal testicular development, and HIV infection. This has increased the demand for testicular cancer drugs as these drugs have greatly improved survival rate for patients with both seminomas and non-seminomas type of testicular cancer.
Further, one of the main challenges in the market is the presence of alternative testicular cancer treatments that do not use drugs, thereby limiting the consumption of drugs.
