GlobalData has released its new PharmaPoint Country Evaluation report, PharmaPoint: Colorectal Cancer Japan Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2023. Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second leading cause of mortality among cancer patients in the world and is the third most diagnosed cancer globally, and thus represents a huge burden on healthcare systems. This report focuses on the current treatment landscape, unmet needs, current pipeline, and commercial opportunities in the colorectal cancer market, with coverage of multiple settings of the disease including neoadjuvant/adjuvant, first-, second-, third-line KRAS wild-type and mutation-positive, and fourth-line metastatic. In terms of targeted treatments, the metastatic CRC treatment landscape is mature, including the branded treatments Avastin (bevacizumab), Avastin (cetuximab), and Vectibix (panitumumab), treatments that have extended the survival of metastatic patients compared to chemotherapy-only regimens. However, high unmet needs remain for the extension of survival of metastatic patients, and particularly those with KRAS mutation-positive disease, for whom the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitors Avastin and Vectibix are not recommended.
Japan represents the second-largest market for CRC across the countries covered in this report. Japan is a major CRC market, due to the high incidence of the disease and high drug treatment rates. Increased sales of CRC therapies over the forecast period will be driven by increasing disease incident cases as the population ages, label extension of Stivarga as an adjuvant treatment for resected liver metastases patients, and the launch of expensive new therapies that provide further treatment options for patients in later-line settings, replacing cheaper generic chemotherapy only regimens.Scope
