Competitor Analysis: Targeted Therapy of Hepatitis C

91 Pages La Merie Publishing August 01, 2011 SKU: LAM6556642

The present Competitive Intelligence Report about Targeted Therapy of Hepatitis C provides a competitor evaluation in the field of specifically targeted antiviral therapeutics for hepatitis C (STAT-C) as of August 2011. Purchase of the downloadable pdf report includes a 6-month online access to the data of the report and any updates since the publication date. Credentials to access the database will be sent by e-mail and allow online work with the project data to print or export an individual report.

Most hepatitis C virus (HCV) infected individuals seeking treatment are chronically infected. Treatment goal is to achieve a sustained virological response (SVR), which is the absence of serum HCV RNA up to 6 months after therapy is concluded. To increase efficiency of interferon treatment, pegylated interferon alpha (peg-IFN-alpha) therapy has been supplemented with ribavirin. Combination therapy with peg-IFN-alpha and ribavirin has resulted in a further increase in treatment efficiency with 54% of HCV infected patients achieving SVR. The response and rate of SVR is dependent on the genotype of HCV with only 30% of genotype 1 infected individuals achieving SVR, whereas greater than 80% of genotype 2 or 3 achieve SVR with combination therapy. Combination therapy treatment regiments are genotype dependent and the amount of peg-IFN-á administered is dependent on the type used.

The suboptimal response has led to a shift in the investigational focus for treatment of HCV toward specifically targeted antiviral therapy for HCV agents. Moreover, pegylated IFN alpha and/or ribavirin are associated with frequent side effects and have a negative impact on the patient's quality of life.

The report includes a compilation of current active projects in research and development of molecules specifically directed against novel targets in hepatitis C. In addition, the report lists company-specific R&D pipelines of targeted therapeutics in hepatitis C. Competitor projects are listed in a tabular format providing information on:
  • Drug Codes,
  • Target / Mechanism of Action,
  • Class of Compound,
  • Company,
  • Product Category,
  • Indication,
  • R&D Stage and
  • additional comments with a hyperlink leading to the source of information.
