2013-02-25 10:21:54 - Fast Market Research recommends "PharmaPoint: Prostate Cancer - Japan Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022" from GlobalData, now available

GlobalData has released its new Country report, "PharmaPoint: Prostate Cancer - Japan 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.

In Japan, PSA screening is used much less frequently than in any of the other major markets discussed in this report. In contrast to the US, where the USPSTF has recommended against the use of routine PSA screening, the Japanese government has increased funding for routine PSA screening and physicians are expected to incorporate it into yearly physical exams (Kamidono et al., 2008). A suspected diagnosis of prostate cancer based on elevated PSA levels, symptoms, or an irregular DRE is confirmed using TRUS-guided multiple core needle biopsies. Metastases are diagnosed using bone scans, CT scans, or MRI (CRCJUA, 2005).
