DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "OpportunityAnalyzer: Vasculitis - Opportunity Analysis and Forecast to 2024" report to their offering.
This report specifically covers large vessel vasculitis (LLV), Kawasaki disease (KD), antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitis (AAV), and Behçet's disease (BD). In 2014, there were 137,603 and 82,454 diagnosed prevalent and incident cases in the 7MM (US, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, UK, and Japan), respectively.
Untreated, the organs and tissues affected by the damaged blood vessels do not get enough blood, which can lead to organ or tissue damage, or even death. J&J's Remicade was the first biologic in the vasculitis market, approved for BD in Japan in 2007. Other biologics approved for vasculitis include AbbVie's Humira for BD in Japan and Biogen/Roche's Rituxan for GPA/MPA in the 7MM.
Several unmet needs still remain such as the development of drugs with improved safety and efficacy for use in both the induction and maintenance treatment settings . GlobalData expects the launch of six drugs during the 2014 to 2024 forecast period along with increased diagnosed patient numbers will drive the vasculitis market.
