OpportunityAnalyzer: Graft-Versus-Host Disease - Opportunity Analysis and Forecasts to 2018


The main drivers of growth in graft versus host disease over the 2013-2018 forecast period include the increasing numbers of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplants and the increasing use of biologic off-label and marketed therapies in the 6MM.

Sanofi is a key player in the GVHD market with Thymoglobuline and Lemtrada by infiltrating prophylaxis, aGVHD and cGVHD. J&J's Remicade, has gained a significant patent share of the aGVHD patient group, as it is one of the few drugs that are efficient in GVHD with GI involvement. Gaining more and more ground in the treatment management of cGVHD is Roche's Rituxan that GlobalData estimates will be one of the bestselling biologics in GVHD in the US by 2018.

Despite the vast array of available off-label therapies for the treatment and/or prevention of GVHD, very few of these therapies have been tested in large randomised trials. This results in vague treatment recommendations and many patients being enrolled in institutional clinical trials. The only available standard of care is intravenous methylprednisolone that fails to produce a complete response in more than 50% of treated patients. Steroid-refractory subgroups face low prognosis with deteriorating quality of life. Second and third life treatments can vary from country to country but also between different medical institutions in the same country.
