Research and Markets: LDK378 (Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer) - Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/kq74kd/ldk378_nonsmall)
has announced the addition of the "LDK378
(Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer) - Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022"
report to their offering.
Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) is the most common lung cancer, and
the second-most common cancer in men and women. Historically, the
treatment paradigm has centered around chemotherapy. However, the launch
of targeted therapies for patients with specific biomarkers has begun to
fragment the NSCLC treatment landscape into smaller niche patient
populations. Over the forecast period, this trend will continue with the
aunch of multiple new drugs in several new drug classes to address the
high unmet need among NSCLC patients, and provide new treatment options
for previously underserved populations. Launch of premium-priced drug
candidates combined with increasing incident cases of the disease will
be major drivers of growth in the major markets.
Novartis' LDK378 is a second-generation oral inhibitor of ALK that is
under investigation in Phase I and II trials as a second-line treatment
in ALK-positive NSCLC patients. It is delivered as a daily oral
monotherapy. In March 2013, LDK378 was awarded Breakthrough Therapy
status by the FDA.
