“PharmaPoint: HIV - Japan Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022”
GlobalData has released its new Country report, PharmaPoint: HIV - Japan Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022. Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), the causative agent of AIDS, has claimed millions of lives since its emergence. However, the advent of antiretroviral therapy (ART) has transformed the face of HIV/AIDS from a deadly disease to a manageable chronic condition for most infected individuals. Antiretroviral treatment not only reduces the viral load and reconstitutes immune function, but also decreases infection incidence rates by limiting viral transmission.
The treatment algorithm in HIV has characteristically involved multiple drug regimens designed to tackle the virus on different levels. In the recent past, simplified dosing regimens through the emergence of single tablet regimens (STRs) or fixed dose combination (FDC) therapies have become increasingly popular amongst physicians and patients alike by increasing clinical efficacy thresholds and enabling patient compliance.
This can be explained by the low prevalence and incidence rates of HIV in Japan. The Japanese market is different from the other major markets in that STR use has not yet been introduced. For example, Atripla, which is the market leader in the US and Europe, is not currently licensed in Japan.
However, the first integrase-based STR, Gilead's Stribild, which was approved by the FDA in August 2012, might be launched in Japan by the end of 2013 or at the beginning of 2014. Japan Tobacco, through its research alliance with Gilead, filed for market approval of elvitegravir in December 2012 with the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare. GlobalData believes that ViiV will adopt a similar approach to launch the novel INI-based inhibitor dolutegravir and 572-Trii into the Japanese market.
