2013-02-26 01:49:03 - New Pharmaceuticals research report from GlobalData is now available from Fast Market Research

GlobalData has released its new Country report, "PharmaPoint: Prostate Cancer - United Kingdom Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022". The recent approvals of second-line metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) therapies like J&J's Zytiga (abiraterone acetate) and Medivation/Astellas' Xtandi (enzalutamide) will drive strong market growth over the next decade. These safe and orally administered treatments will provide safety and convenience benefits over the current standard of care, chemotherapy with docetaxel, while prolonging the overall survival of patients with mCRPC. The December 12, 2012 FDA approval of Zytiga for the added indication of chemotherapy-naive mCRPC marks the onset of a new treatment paradigm for the disease, in which chemotherapy is relegated to second-line therapy and beyond. For patients with earlier-stage prostate

cancer, androgen deprivation therapy with LHRH agonists and first-generation antiandrogens remains the standard of care for suppressing testosterone levels and temporarily controlling the disease.

Routine PSA screening is used to diagnose prostate cancer in the UK, although its uptake is not as widespread as in the US. DREs are also frequently used to search for abnormalities in the prostate (EAU, 2012). Multiple TRUS-guided core biopsies are used in order to confirm a diagnosis of prostate cancer in response to symptoms or high PSA levels. To identify metastases, physicians use bone scans or CT scans. According to GlobalData's primary research, UK urologists and medical oncologists report that most of their patients were diagnosed and/or monitored using PSA screening. The majority of prescribing physicians do not anticipate any changes in screening patterns in response to the USPSTF recommendation against routine screening. Primary research indicates that while PSA screening is used to some extent, the UK is unlikely to institute a national screening program. Physicians feel that it is more appropriate to prevent overtreatment, and wait until the prostate cancer manifests with symptoms before treatment is initiated.
