Global Hepatocellular Carcinoma Drugs Market Overview

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a major type of primary liver cancer that originates from liver cells or hepatocytes. The disease occurs mainly in patients with hepatitis B, hepatitis C, cirrhosis, obesity and diabetes. The diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma is mainly performed by imaging tests such as ultrasound, magnetic resonance, computed tomography and liver biopsy. The treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma mainly includes radiotherapy, ablation therapy in addition to chemotherapy and targeted pharmacological therapy. The majority of HCC patients are diagnosed at the final stage of liver dysfunction. Due to the poor prognosis of the disease, the mortality rate is approximately the same as the incidence rate. Therefore, early detection of cancer is an important parameter to improve the survival of affected patients, which contributes to the growth of the global market for hepatocellular carcinoma drugs.

Global Hepatocellular Carcinoma Drugs Market Drivers and Restraints:

The increasing incidence of cases of global hepatocellular carcinoma is an important factor that increases market growth. According to research by International Journal of Cancer Research and Treatment, 2014, HCC is the sixth most common cancer in the world and the third most common cause of death in the world found in one-fifth of men and -eight of women. In addition, according to the University of Addis Ababa, 2017, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) accounts for 854,000 new cases of liver cancer and 810,000 deaths in 2015. In addition, the increase in the incidence and mortality of Hepatocellular carcinoma is attributed to the emergence of new risk factors such as viral hepatitis B and C, metabolic disorders such as diabetes and fatty liver disease and exposure to non-alcoholic toxins such as alcohol and aflatoxins. In addition, the clinical advances incorporated in regulatory approvals for new drugs to treat hepatocellular carcinoma increase the growth of the market. For example, in April 2017, the US Food and Drug Administration has extended the indications for regorafenib (Stivarga) manufactured by Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals Inc., for the treatment of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma. The therapy showed a significant improvement in patient survival after failure of standard treatments. In addition, in 2017, the US FDA approved accelerated drug nivolumab (Opdivo) developed by Bristol-Myers Squibb for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma.

However, side effects associated with medications such as anemia, constipation, low white blood cell count, pneumonia, etc. may limit the growth of the market.
