PharmaPoint: Prostate Cancer - Spain Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022
GlobalData has released its new Country report, “PharmaPoint: Prostate Cancer - Spain Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022”. The recent approvals of second-line metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) therapies like J&J’s Zytiga (abiraterone acetate) and Medivation/Astellas’ Xtandi (enzalutamide) will drive strong market growth over the next decade.
These safe and orally administered treatments will provide safety and convenience benefits over the current standard of care, chemotherapy with docetaxel, while prolonging the overall survival of patients with mCRPC. The December 12, 2012 FDA approval of Zytiga for the added indication of chemotherapy-naïve mCRPC marks the onset of a new treatment paradigm for the disease, in which chemotherapy is relegated to second-line therapy and beyond. For patients with earlier-stage prostate cancer, androgen deprivation therapy with LHRH agonists and first-generation antiandrogens remains the standard of care for suppressing testosterone levels and temporarily controlling the disease.
The PSA blood test and DREs are the most popular diagnostic tests for prostate cancer in Spain. PSA testing is also commonly used to monitor disease progression. Suspected disease is confirmed by TRUS-guided core needle biopsy, and metastases are identified using bone scans or CT scans (EAU, 2012).
GlobalData’s primary research indicates that Spanish urologists and medical oncologists may slightly decrease their use of routine PSA screening to diagnose asymptomatic patients in response to the recent USPSTF recommendation against its use. As routine PSA screening is less frequently employed in Spain than in the US, and the USPSTF recommendation was not directed towards Spanish physicians, GlobalData believes that only a very small percentage of Spanish physicians will abide by this recommendation.
