What do frontline clinicians really think about current HIV treatment pathways and what are the most pressing unmet needs that industry can respond to?

What’s driving long term growth in HIV?

The market for HIV therapies has been growing fast — a 5 year CAGR (2007-2012) of 12.0% — but sustaining growth will be a challenge. The HIV sector is mature with many tried and tested treatment options, so what has underpinned growth to date and how can companies drive market expansion in the future?

The patient population is key

Current HIV therapies are effective in suppressing HIV and are successfully increasing patients' life expectancy. However, they are not curative and must be taken for the lifetime of the patient. This means the market for HIV therapies will be sustained from the long-term maintenance of the current patient base whose numbers will swell as new cases are diagnosed.

Good times, bad times?

Valued at US$16 billion in 2012, and with a 5-year CAGR (2007-2012) of 12.0 percent, the HIV sector is dominated by seven blockbuster drugs: Gilead's Atripla and Truvada; Bristol Myers-Squibb's Reyataz; Merck & Co.'s Isentress; Janssen Therapeutics' Prezista; ViiV Healthcare's Epzicom/Kivexa; and AbbVie's Kaletra. With few payer restrictions on prescribing HIV therapies, no prospect of a cure or vaccine in the near future and limited uptake of generics to date, the sector is forecast to maintain stable returns until the end of the decade. However, driving high growth will be a challenge, and new products must show significant clinical and patient benefits if they are to succeed in a market already provided with established therapy options.

Game changers in the pipeline?

Medical adherence, improved efficacy and reducing toxicity are major challenges and there are a number of promising candidates in late trials — but how will they fare? Will ViiV Healthcare price Trii, its first single-tablet, complete regimen, competitively? Tobira Therapeutics cenicriviroc has novel anti-inflammatory effects, but what are the regulatory hurdles it will have to overcome? And Gilead's tenofovir alafenamide could address safety concerns associated with tenofovir; can it limit competition from generic alternatives?

Meeting the challenge of unmet need

Many of the challenges faced by clinicians are not related to efficacy, but include poor adherence to treatment, often exacerbated by societal and mental health issues, the stigma associated with diagnostic testing and low levels of early diagnosis. There are, however, opportunities for industry to improve patient outcomes. For example:

Poor adherence to prescribing programmes is a major issue in the management of HIV. Long acting injectable formulations and single dose combination therapies may help tackle this problem and in turn reduce transmission rates.
Under diagnosis or late diagnosis often leads to patients presenting with advanced infection. This is a notoriously difficult area to influence, but could home self diagnosis be part of the answer? Only OraQuick's In-Home HIV test is approved in the US and there are none in Europe.
As first-line anti-retroviral regimens have similar efficacy, the choice of therapies is determined by the type and likelihood of long term adverse effects such a renal function impairment and cardiovascular disease. New complete combination regimens may address some of these safety concerns, but products with reduced side-effect are both a development challenge and market opportunity.
