2013-05-03 13:08:16 - New Pharmaceuticals research report from GlobalData is now available from Fast Market Research

GlobalData has released its new PharmaPoint Drug Evaluation report, "Reclast (Osteoporosis) - Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022". Despite its maturity, the osteoporosis market is expected to undergo substantial change between 2012 and 2022. Most importantly, the 'gold-standard' bisphosphonates will lose patent protection by end-of-year 2013, flooding the marketplace with less expensive generic versions of these physician-preferred medications. Additionally, Eli Lilly's blockbuster Evista, the only available SERM in the US, will lose patent protection in 2014, flooding the market with yet more affordable generic options. Also during the forecast period covered by this report, osteoporosis drug development research will lead to the launches of a wave of novel anabolic drugs with greater efficacy and safety, causing a major market shift

away from anti-resorptive drugs. The number of companies vying for patient share will shrink by as much as 50%, as established players exit the market or acquire smaller players. Lastly, the aging of the population in developed markets will result in a larger patient pool.

These changes in the osteoporosis market will be reflected in the slow growth during the forecast period, with the market growing from $6 billion to $8 billion in 2011 USD at a CAGR of 3%.

Reclast (zolendronic acid) is a bisphosphonate manufactured by Novartis for the treatment of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women and in men (Reclast Injection Package Insert, 2011). Reclast's defining attribute is its once-yearly administration, which puts it in a class of its own in terms of ease of use and patient compliance. The single dose, a 5mg/100mL injection, is typically administered intravenously for 15 minutes. Reclast works by rapidly binding to hydroxyapatite, a key structural component of bone, and by inhibiting farnesyl pyrophosphate (FPP) synthase. FPP synthase is inhibited by the prevention of post-translational modifications of small GTPases, which retards osteoclast function (Black et al., 2007).
