Scope & Importance
The primary goal of chemotherapy is to shrink tumour and stop the growth of cancer. If it’s been determined that cancer cannot be cured, chemotherapy may still be beneficial to shrink tumor size enough to alleviate the physical symptoms of cancer and to slow the progress of cancer enough to extend life.
Chemo Therapy is concerned with:
·The diagnosis/ Screening of any cancer in a person (pathology)
·Therapy (e.g. surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and other modalities)
·Follow-up of cancer patients after successful treatment
·Palliative care of patients with terminal malignancies
·Ethical questions surrounding cancer care
Chemo therapy is a major participant in any multi-disciplinary team (MDT), which would meet regularly to discuss site specific cases of tumours. Other members would be site specific surgeon, palliative care physician, radiologist, pathologist, specialist nursing staff and appropriate haematologist and medical oncologist.
Biological drugs based on monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) have emerged as a preferred option for treating various cancer types, especially for blood cancer (leukemia).
The global oncology drugs market is expected to reach at $111.9 billion by 2020. Patent expiration of key cancer drugs such as Herceptin, Erbitux, Rituxan and Avastin, is expected to boost the growth of cancer biosimilars market by 2020. The biological therapies are expected to dominate the market by 2020, due to their high efficacy, target specific action and less toxicity. Blood cancer drugs market was the largest revenue generating segment in 2013 owing to the high cost of drugs (immunotherapies) used for the treatment of blood cancer.
Geographically, North America, dominates the market followed by Europe. North America accounted for about ~38% share in the overall oncology drugs market in 2013 owing to the heavy investments by multinational companies in research and development of cancer drugs. On the other hand, Asia-Pacific market would grow at the promising CAGR of 8.7% during the forecast period.
