Uveal Melanoma (UM) Market Insights, Epidemiology and Market Forecast-2027

DelveInsight Business Research LLP


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/30/2018 -- Uveal melanoma is the most common intraocular malignancy and arises from melanocytes in the iris (anterior), ciliary body, or choroid (posterior). Iris melanomas have the best prognosis, whereas melanomas of the ciliary body have the least favourable prognosis. Most uveal tract melanomas originate in the choroid while the iris is the least common. The typical choroidal melanoma is a brown, elevated, dome-shaped sub retinal mass. The degree of pigmentation ranges from dark brown to totally amelanotic. Melanomas of the choroid generally are more malignant. Males have a higher incidence than females. UM is diagnosed mostly at older ages, with a progressively rising, age-specific, incidence rate that peaks near the age of 70 years. Most Uveal melanomas are initially completely asymptomatic. As the tumour enlarges, it may cause distortion of the pupil (iris melanoma), blurred vision (Ciliary body melanoma), or markedly decreased visual acuity caused by secondary retinal detachment (choroidal melanoma). Serous detachment of the retina may occur.

According to the report of DelveInsight "Uveal Melanoma (UM) Market Insights, Epidemiology and Market Forecast-2027" UM is the most common primary intraocular malignancy in adults which represents 3%–5% of all melanomas. UM is clinically and biologically different from cutaneous melanoma. Metastasis frequently occurs in this disease, and once distant spread occurs, outcomes are poor. The mean age-adjusted incidence of Uveal Melanoma in the United States is approximately 4.3 new cases per million people, with no clear variation by latitude. Ocular melanoma rates are 8-10 times higher among whites compared with blacks. The number of new melanoma cases are estimated to be 3,540, out of which 350 died from cancer of eyes and orbit in US.

Market Outlook of Uveal Melanoma Market

The current market of Uveal Melanoma consists of primary global-preserving therapies like surgery, laser or photocoagulation or trans pupillary thermotherapy, Plaque brachytherapy, charged particle therapy, ionizing radiation, stereotactic radiotherapy. Despite of its effective primary therapy, nearly 50% of patients develop metastatic disease and it remains unclear what effect they have on patient survival rate. The current treatment of Metastatic Uveal Melanoma is limited by the lack of effective systemic therapy. The options for the treatment of the primary intraocular tumour include radical surgery as well as enucleation in order to preserve visual acuity. Conventional systemic chemotherapy has shown poor response rates in Uveal Melanoma as the disease is resistant to these conventional systemic therapies. Currently, there is no approved treatment for metastatic UM. Several palliative treatments for UM offered in the US and Europe include Liver-directed treatments-Trans arterial Catheter and Immunotherapy, targeted therapy.

Emerging Drugs Analysis

Key players such as AstraZeneca, Delcath Systems Inc., Pfizer, Aura Biosciences, BioMed Valley Discoveries, Immunocore Ltd and many others are involved in developing the treatment therapies for Uveal Melanoma. Expected launch of emerging therapies such as Selumetinib in combination with Dacarbazine (AstraZeneca), Melphalan (Delcath Systems Inc), IMCgp100 (in combination with Dacarbazine, Ipilimumab, and Pembrolizumab) (Immunocore Ltd), Crizotinib (Pfizer), Light-activated AU-011 (Aura Biosciences), BVD-523 (BioMed Valley Discoveries, Inc) and other compelling treatments, are expected to impact the overall market size of Uveal Melanoma during the study period 2016-2027.
