 “COPD Drug Market Opportunity & Clinical Pipeline Analysis” Report Highlight:

 

 

Globally, close to 1 Billion people or in other words, 15% of the world's population suffer from respiratory or pulmonary diseases. In the respiratory therapeutic domain, Asthma and COPD are the major categories, accounting for close to 76%. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a disease which progresses in the lungs and requires treatment all through the life. It is an inflammatory disorder which is characterized by obstruction in the variable airflow and airway hyper-responsiveness to many intrinsic, genetic and environmental stimuli. These disorders have become one of the major reasons for disability and death. The prevalence and incidence of this disease is increasing worldwide.

Bronchodilators and polypharmacy dominates the treatment for this disease. It is expected that by 2020, COPD would account for more than 6 million deaths across the globe annually. Inspite of significant investments in the development of novel agents to treat the disease, the COPD therapy area is generally dominated by inhaled bronchodilator therapies which only relieve symptoms, but do not completely cure the disease. There exist many opportunities for a disease-modifying therapy. However, the development of new COPD therapies is increasingly focusing on therapies which combine two bronchodilators into one inhaler.
