New Market Study: "R&D Trends: Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia - Small pipeline which lacks promise"

New Pharmaceuticals research report from Datamonitor is now available from Fast Market Research


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/14/2012 -- New therapies have entered the benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) drug market since Datamonitor reviewed the market in 2009, including Rapaflo (silodosin; Recordati) and Duodart/Jalyn (dutasteride and tamsulosin; GlaxoSmithKline). Meanwhile, the failure of AEterna Zentaris's cetrorelix to meet Phase III efficacy endpoints signals the end of gonadotropin-releasing hormones being approved for BPH.

Report Highlights

Datamonitor identified 18 drugs in clinical development for BPH, with orally delivered candidates accounting for 43% of the R&D pipeline. Still, key opinion leaders believe that the pipeline shows little promise and remain pessimistic about the future treatment of BPH.

Datamonitor regards Flomax (tamsulosin; Astellas/Boehringer Ingelheim) as the gold standard for symptom relief, while Avodart (dutasteride; GlaxoSmithKline) is the gold-standard disease-modifying therapy. However, Avodart's drawbacks include a minimal symptomatic effect, lengthy time to induce therapeutic action, and sexual dysfunction.

Opinion leaders foresee an increase in the use of surgical management over the next decade. This is in spite of the risks and costs associated with surgery and will be driven by technological advances and the improved outcomes that surgery offers in comparison to drug treatments
