NEW YORK, Aug. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:



Diabetes: Battle for ascendancy escalates in expanding market – KOL Insight
http://www.reportlinker.com/p01601323/Diabetes-Battle-for-ascendancy-escalates-in-expanding-market-–-KOL-Insight.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Pathology


Diabetes is one of the few disease areas that has retained its market value despite the entry of generics, the rise in drug prices and prevalence of the disease has allowed drug sales to soar to a worldwide value of $34.1 billion in 2012. While barriers to entry remain high with added scrutiny over cardiovascular and other safety risks, evident by Tresiba's (insulin degludec; Novo Nordisk) recent US failure, the exponential market growth makes diabetes one of the most attractive opportunities in Pharma.

Competition in the major drug segments are intense with Sanofi's basal insulin Lantus (insulin glargine), Novo's prandial insulin NovoRapid/NovoLog (insulin aspart), Merck's DPP-IV Januvia (sitagliptin), and Novo's GLP-1 Victoza (liraglutide) leading the way in their respective classes with best in class efficacy and safety. In addition to these clinical advantages, more convenient administration devices and strong marketing has helped them stand out from the competition.

While Novo Nordisk, Sanofi and Merck look set to protect their franchises with exciting pipeline therapies, Key Opinion Leaders interviewed by FirstWord note that there are a number of unmet needs in diabetes treatment and management. Companies that can address these needs and differentiate their products from existing players will see significant traction in this lucrative indication. This is evident from the successful launches of the novel SGLT-2 inhibitors- Invokana (canagliflozin; Johnson & Johnson/Mitsubishi Tanabe) and Forxiga (dapagliflozin; Bristol-Myers Squibb/AstraZeneca), in the US and EU. In addition, therapies showing significant incremental advances also have potential to usurp market share from the gold standard treatments.

'Therapy Trends: Diabetes' is compiled from exclusive, in-depth interviews with the world's leading Key Opinion Leaders in diabetes. It identifies and analyses the major factors, advances and trends currently influencing the diabetes treatment landscape. The report focuses on late-stage pipeline products, and how these could modify future Diabetes management.

FirstWord selected the KOLs for this Therapy Trends report based on their level of engagement and influence within the diabetes disease area, and their scientific standing and clinical experience. Our unique KOL scoring system identifies those thought leaders with the greatest insight into how diabetes clinical research will shape the future market.

Methodology

This report provides a qualitative overview of the current and future diabetes market. Information was gathered from telephone interviews held with twelve key opinion leaders (KOLs), from across the major diabetes markets, including France, Germany, Italy, the UK and the US. These regions were selected because they contain many of the largest global markets for the pharmaceutical industry, and also influence the dynamics of Pharma markets in other countries.
In order to critically select Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs) a number of parameters were considered including their clinical experience, scientific publications, involvement with Pharma, involvement in clinical trials, and record of presenting at high profile international conferences.
Subjects covered in the interviews included future diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for diabetes, the future of diabetes drug classes, and new drugs entering the market. These leading KOLs also gave their views on current research, the usefulness of existing diabetes drug classes, the cost of newer drugs and other concerns in the therapy area.
