PharmaPoint: Hepatitis C Virus - Global Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022 - Event-Driven Update

Summary

Hepatitis C is a liver infection caused by the hepatitis C virus (HCV) that results in acute or chronic presentation. The disease is often asymptomatic, but infected patients may experience fatigue, joint pain, itchy skin or jaundice. There is no effective vaccine against HCV, so the market is driven by therapeutics. Currently, drug combinations containing a direct-acting antiviral (DAA), such as Gilead's Sovaldi (sofosbuvir) or Janssen's Olysio (simeprevir), along with pegylated interferon (e.g., Roche’s Pegasys and Merck’s PegIntron) and/or ribavirin (e.g., Roche’s Copegus and Merck’s Rebetol) are used to treat HCV infections. Sovaldi and Olysio have largely replaced first-generation NS3/4A protease inhibitors, such as Vertex's Incivek (telaprevir) and Merck's Victrelis (boceprevir) due to their increased tolerability, efficacy, and shorter treatment duration. The entrance of next-generation , all-oral HCV therapies is expected to fundamentally alter the HCV treatment algorithm.

Highlights

Key Questions Answered

- How quickly, and to what extent, will interferon-sparing and all-oral regimens replace Incivek and Victrelis in the treatment algorithm?
- What role, if any, will interferon-based therapies have in the HCV treatment landscape over the next decade?
- Which novel HCV therapies will face adoption challenges in the market? What is the projected uptake of new drugs, such as Merck’s MK-5172/MK-8742, over the forecast period?
- Will the reduced pill burden and increased convenience of fixed-dose, all-oral combination therapies lead to their widespread uptake?
- How will pricing influence the use of next-generation DAAs?
- Which HCV regimen(s) in development are physicians most excited about?

Key Findings

- Patient awareness is anticipated to increase in response to government education and screening initiatives.
- Interferon use is predicted to drastically decrease over the next 10 years.
- The launch of next-generation, all-oral DAA regimens is expected to streamline the HCV treatment algorithm.
- The approval of more-tolerable HCV therapies is likely to result in patients deciding to undergo treatment (i.e., decrease in the warehouse effect).
- Fixed-dose combination therapies are expected to seize market share due to their reduced pill burden and convenience.

Scope

- Overview of hepatitis C virus (HCV), including epidemiology, etiology, general symptoms from infection, and national vaccination recommendations and guidelines.
