About This Report

Diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers will help to identify patients with early Alzheimer’s disease, while pharmacogenetic biomarkers can inform prescribing decisions and form the basis of personalized medicine. Biomarkers are at the heart of the development of two high-risk pipeline drugs, bapineuzumab and solanezumab, with combined peak-year revenue projections of USD 6.6bn in the seven major industries.

What's Included in This Report?


* Identify the imaging, fluid, and genetic biomarkers currently under clinical evaluation.

* Understand the potential roles of biomarker tests in the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.

* Review the tools used to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease by neurologists surveyed by Datamonitor in 2011.

* Quantify the impact that biomarkers may have on the Alzheimer’s disease drug industry from 2011 to 2020.

* View insights from Datamonitor’s interviews with internationally renowned key opinion leaders.

Key Market Facts

The Alzheimer’s disease industry is projection to grow to 2020 at a CAGR of 10.7% from 2011. Catalysts for growth include an aging population, earlier diagnosis, and the introduction of immunotherapies. The absolute impact of biomarkers is predicted to be USD 6.6bn annually by 2020 with the potential for far greater implications beyond this period.
The last 2 years have seen a spate of collaborations between drug and diagnostic firms . This has allowed drug developers to be at the forefront of diagnostic research; enabling optimized patient recruitment and generating important biomarker data. Furthermore, the potential for allying a new drug to a companion diagnostic is created.
Diagnostic biomarkers to identify MCI due to Alzheimer’s may increase the likelihood that a drug with an anti-amyloid mechanism will show efficacy. Furthermore, pharmacogenetic biomarkers, such as ApoE4 status with bapineuzumab, can identify patients that will be more likely to respond to a treatment with an acceptable safety profile.

Why Should You Buy This Report?
