Research and Markets: Global Testicular Cancer Drugs Market 2014-2018: Impact of Drivers and Challenges
DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/smw755/global_testicular) has announced the addition of the "Global Testicular Cancer Drugs Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
The analysts forecast the Global Testicular Cancer Drugs market to grow at a CAGR of 4.02 percent over the period 2013-2018. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing incidence of testicular cancer. The Global Testicular Cancer Drugs market has also been witnessing the emergence of combination therapies for the treatment of testicular cancer. However, the presence of alternative testicular cancer treatments could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
Key vendors dominating this space include Bristol-Myers Squibb Co., Hospira Inc., Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd., and ZIOPHARM Oncology Inc.
Other vendors mentioned in the report are Baxter International Inc., Fresenius Kabi Pharmaceuticals Holding Inc., and Mylan Pharmaceutical Inc.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: The current trend witnessed by the Global Testicular Cancer Drugs market is combination therapy being used for treating testicular cancer. Several oncologists believe that chemotherapy drugs are most effective when given in combination with radiation therapy and surgery. Cancer cells that are confined locally can be easily treated by surgery or radiation therapy, while cancer cells that have spread to distant sites can be killed by chemotherapy. Therefore, combination therapy helps in completely removing the tumor or destroying the cancerous cells in the patient's body. The combination therapy is decided depending on the size of the tumor and the risk of recurrence. Moreover, for treatment of testicular cancer, a combination of two or more drugs is usually given. Some of the combinations are BEP, EP (etoposide and cisplatin), and VIP (vinblastine plus ifosfamide and cisplatin).
According to the report, one of the key drivers is the increasing prevalence of testicular cancer due to a variety of factors such as congenital abnormalities, family history, abnormal testicular development, and HIV infection. This has increased the demand for testicular cancer drugs as these drugs have greatly improved survival rate for patients with both seminomas and non-seminomas type of testicular cancer.
