New report: Stakeholder Insight: Acute Leukemias - Reaching the limits of cytotoxic chemotherapy

New Healthcare market report from Datamonitor: "Stakeholder Insight: Acute Leukemias - Reaching the limits of cytotoxic chemotherapy"

 
PRLog - Dec. 12, 2009 - The drug therapy of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is largely based on chemotherapy regimens that have changed little in the past few decades. Patient outcomes for both diseases remain poor, particularly for elderly and high-risk patients. As the limits of cytotoxic chemotherapy are being reached, an unmet need remains for novel, improved therapies.

Scope

* Analysis of the AML and adult ALL market based on a survey of 180 acute leukemia specialists, supported by interviews with key opinion leaders.
* Segmentation of the AML and adult ALL populations by age group and risk group, respectively
* In-depth analysis of treatment patterns, regimens prescribed and treatment outcomes for AML and adult ALL by age group and risk group, respectively
* Discussion of unmet needs and overview of late-stage pipeline drugs and marketed drugs investigated for expansion into the AML and adult ALL settings

Highlights

The only molecular targeted therapy approved for use in AML is Mylotarg (gemtuzumab ozogamicin; Wyeth) but it's use is limited to elderly, relapsed patients who are not candidates for other chemotherapy. A number of molecular targeted therapies are currently in development for AML but are expected to have minimal impact on patient outcomes.

Gleevec (imatinib; Novartis) is the only molecular targeted therapy used extensively in the treatment of adult ALL. To date, the second generation tyrosine kinase inhibitors Sprycel (dasatinib; Bristol-Myers Squibb) and Tasigna (nilotinib; Novartis) have limited use in the treatment of the disease.

Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) has a central role in the management of both AML and adult ALL. However, it remains an underutilized procedure and its use is often delayed beyond its optimal timing. Research efforts are required to optimize the use of this potentially curative approach.
