Currently, the therapies developmental pipeline is abuzz with activity but the efficacy of these drugs is still below the expected standard. Progress still needs to be made in improving the overall survival rates of patients suffering from OC. Drugs candidates that show the most potential currently are trebananib and olaparib. These two drugs will likely obtain the regulatory nod during the forecast period of this report. Analysts forecast that it will be a while before these drugs are able to achieve a significant degree of market penetration. Moreover, the premium prices of these drugs will further limit their acceptance.

Thus, new drug approvals cannot be listed as a driver for the Asia Pacific ovarian cancer market. Growth will effectively occur as a result of inflationary forces and the general increase in the pervasiveness of ovarian cancer. The report forecasts that the revenues in the APAC OC market will rise at a meager 5.1% CAGR through the forecast period, touching US$417.6 million by 2020.

The report estimates market revenues and size for the period 2013 to 2020 for key markets in the Asia Pacific region, namely, China, India, Japan and Australia. The report begins with the coverage of the disease epidemiology, treatment patterns and algorithms, as well as a detailed analysis of the clinical trials at various stages. A pipeline analysis of the ovarian cancer therapeutics market is yet another vital component of the report.

Findings of the report state that platinum-based chemotherapy—more specifically paclitaxel and carboplatin regimens—is the customary treatment, in the case of ovarian cancer that is sensitive to platinum. This line of treatment is offered in the case of both first-time as well as recurrent ovarian cancer. The initial treatment of the disease has proven to be effective, with the vast majority of patients reporting remission of their disease. However, the analysis also states that nearly all of these cases experience a relapse – ultimately leading to mortality or the emergence of platinum-resistant ovarian cancer (the prognosis for which is currently poor).

The report identifies a wide gap in the current ovarian cancer market for maintenance therapies. A pressing need is also felt for treatment options that are more effective, especially in patients with platinum-resistant OC.
