The Cancer Market Outlook to 2013: Competitive landscape, pipeline analysis and growth opportunities

Report Overview

The market for cancer treatments is one of the largest and fastest growing areas in the pharma industry. Most innovation in oncology over the past 10 years has been driven by scientific advances, particularly in the genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics sciences. Successful oncology players of the future will be those that can anticipate protocol evolution and design the most relevant clinical trials. More recently, biotech companies have been driving innovation in oncology more than ever before. Partnering with biotech companies is an important but expensive source of innovation for many pharma companies, with approximately 75% of phase II, III and pre-registration innovative drugs are of biotech origin.

Key issues examined in this report...

  • Reimbursement for cryoablation treatments. The new 2008 CMS rates for prostate cryoablation (in outpatient hospitals), under APC code 674, were raised from $6,685 to $7,816, an increase of 16.9%. The cryoablation rates for ambulatory surgical centers, known as ASC code 55873, were raised from $1,339 to $6,219, an increase of 364%.
  • Plant-based cancer vaccine. Researchers are developing a plantbased vaccine which can be created more quickly and at far less expense than the animal-based version. The antibodies produced may also trigger a stronger immune response than in mammalian cells.
  • Novel inhibitor of human microRNA. The Wistar Institute team have identified a small molecule that blocks the pathway of miR-21, which is implicated in brain cancer, as well as lung, colon, breast, and ovarian cancer. With further development, the molecule has the potential to boost patient response to existing chemotherapies.
  • NICE guidance on kidney cancer drugs. The availability of high cost cancer drugs is one of the most pressing issues for the NHS. Drug makers are developing proposals which may reduce future drug costs.
