SAN FRANCISCO, April 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
The global head and neck cancer drugs market size is expected to be valued at USD 1.41 billion by 2022, as per a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., registering a CAGR of 9.4% during the forecast period. The market is expected to be collectively driven by development of innovative and cost-effective treatments, numerous side effects related to radiation therapy and chemotherapy, increased healthcare expenditure, and better government initiatives.
As most patients suffering from head and neck cancer are diagnosed at an advanced stage, their management is often done with a multidisciplinary approach involving surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy in the head and neck cancer therapeutics market. Major challenges faced by this patient population are morbidity issues and poor quality of life owing to the incapacitating effects of standard of care treatment paradigms. Anemia, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, joint pain, and osteoporosis are some of the main side effects resulting from head and neck cancer treatments.
Based on recent clinical results, immunotherapies have gained traction as a precision medicine initiative for the management of head and neck cancer. Increased immunity and immune modulation research in cancer offers new vulnerabilities that may be pharmacologically exploitable. Immunotherapy drugs such as PD inhibitors, Opdivo, and Keytruda have shown superior safety and efficacy profile in treatment of head and neck cancer. Expansion of immunotherapies will continue moving toward rational combinations with other first line or adjuvant therapies for effective treatment of metastatic or recurrent head and neck cancer. EGFR and microtubule inhibitor therapeutic classes are witnessing a fundamental shift from biologics to biosimilars.
