Naperville, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/30/2013 -- Reportstack, provider of premium market research reports announces the addition of OpportunityAnalyzer: Uveitis - Opportunity Analysis and Forecasts to 2017 market report to its offering
Uveitis is an expanding market currently dominated by corticosteroid treatment options as well as off-label immunosuppressive and biologic drugs. Since the conventional corticosteroid treatment is only effective in 50-60% of patients a significant number of patients can be targeted with the new treatment options. While anterior uveitis patients represent the majority of patients, all but one of the new treatments in late stage clinical development target the intermediate, posterior and pan uveitis patient segment. The uveitis market is expected to grow between 2012 and 2017, due to the introduction of biologic drugs as well as a diversification of administrative routes. Market growth is created by the increase in treatment costs and will continue beyond the forecasted time period. The new treatments will target some key unmet needs but opportunities will remain for drugs capable of permanently inhibiting ocular inflammation as well as offering an improved safety profile.
