The top three revenue-generating therapeutic area segments of the global cancer supportive care market are discussed below:

Chemotherapy-induced anemia

Anemia is a condition that develops when the blood lacks required amount of healthy red blood cells or hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is a major part of red blood cells that binds with the oxygen. Symptoms of anemia mainly include severe fatigue as the individuals suffering from the condition often do not get proper oxygen in their organs.

According to Sapna Jha, a lead oncology research analyst from Technavio, “Cancer or chemotherapeutic drugs can cause anemia in an individual. Cancer suppresses erythropoiesis, leading to anemia. Chemotherapy targets fast-dividing cancer cells as well as the healthy cells in the body. The cells in the bone marrow are highly sensitive to chemotherapy, resulting in the decreased production of red blood cells in the body.”

Chemotherapy-induced neutropenia

Neutropenia is an abnormally low concentration of neutrophils, a type of white blood cell found in the blood. Neutrophils are the major circulating white blood cells (45%-75%) that act as the primary defense for the body by destroying bacteria, bacterial fragments, and other viruses in the blood. The individuals with neutropenia are more susceptible to bacterial infections, and in the absence of prompt medical attention, the condition may become life threatening.

“Neutropenia is asymptomatic in nature. Since neutropenia weakens the defense mechanism of the body, one may acquire infections, which may cause symptoms. Fever is the most common symptom, which occurs as an immune response to various infections,” adds Sapna.

Cancer pain

Cancer pain affects a large number of individuals undergoing cancer treatment. Not everyone suffering from cancer may go through the cancer pain; however, it is expected that around 33% of the cancer patients go through the cancer pain. The problem is highly witnessed in individuals suffering from advanced stages of the disease. Cancer itself can be a major reason for several types of pain suffered by the individual. However, cancer treatment more specifically chemotherapy may act as a potential source of cancer pain.

There are many ways to treat cancer pain, opioid analgesics and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) being the most used. Pain associated with the cancer treatment has led to high consumption of these pain-relieving drugs. However, the occurrence of a large number of side effects associated with the usage of these analgesics is a challenge faced by both the healthcare providers and the individuals.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • Amgen
  • Helsinn Healthcare
  • Johnson &Johnson
  • Merck
