2013-12-12 16:26:10 - Fast Market Research recommends "OpportunityAnalyzer: Diabetic Foot Ulcers - Opportunity Analysis and Forecast to 2017" from GlobalData, now available

Diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) are a common complication of diabetes, and with the increasing prevalence of diabetes across all markets, the number of patients suffering from DFUs is also expected to rise. Despite the availability of various treatment modalities, there are currently few advanced wound care products available to treat hard-to-heal chronic wounds. In addition, for the past 15 years, Regranex (becaplermin) has been the only pharmacologic wound-healing agent available; however, it is rarely used due a perceived lack of efficacy.

The DFU market is now set to enter an exciting phase with the potential launch of three wound-healing agents in the next five years; Olympus Biotech's trafermin (recombinant human basic fibroblast growth factor), Macrocure's CureXcell (activated leukocyte suspension), and Derma

Sciences' DSC127 (NorLeu3-A[1-7]). The first two topical antibacterials, Innocoll's Cogenzia (gentamicin-collagen sponge) and Dipexium Pharmaceuticals' Locilex (pexiganan acetate cream 1%), are also expected to launch in the US and the five major EU markets (5EU). Both pipeline agents offer an alternative way to treat infection by localizing an antibiotic directly at the wound site.
