Urological cancers are thought to account for 19.5% of global cancer prevalence, with kidney, prostate, testicular and bladder cancer - the key indications covered in this report - accounting for the majority of that figure. Urological cancers affect the male and female urinary tract and the male reproductive organs. Prostate cancer is the most prevalent of these malignancies.
A number of common etiologic factors have been strongly characterized as raising the risk of developing urological cancers, including age, chronic inflammation, gender, obesity, tobacco usage and heritable cancer syndromes. The risk of cancer increases greatly in patients over the age of 65. Populations in developed countries are projected to become increasingly aged and show rising obesity incidence, which will drive both cancer prevalence and revenue growth for its treatments.
Hormone therapies for prostate cancers and angiogenesis inhibitors for renal cell carcinoma are currently the most commercially successful urological cancer drugs. However, there has been a shift towards the clinical testing of cancer immunotherapies – such as Opdivo, which was recently approved for renal cell carcinoma. The forecast period will also witness the approval of a greater number of targeted therapies, which by their nature have less toxicity associated with their use, and as a result can be administered to patients with poor performance statuses, therefore increasing the overall survival of this group and the number of treatment cycles they may receive.
