Parkinson's Disease Selections from "The World Market for Neurotherapeutic Drugs"

In the summer of 2002, Kalorama Information released a major study on non-psychiatric neurotherapeutic drug markets. At almost 500 pages, the resultant report covered a broad range of neurological agents comprehensively and in depth; however, the breadth and authority of the results proved to be more information than some marketers needed. Smaller biopharmaceutical concerns—some of the real drivers of this market—are more focused on individual neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, or epilepsy, rather than the broad therapeutic category as a whole.

Therefore, Kalorama is now offering selections from the neurotherapeutics study, covering each of these topics in turn, while at the same time providing selected overall findings in other disease areas to allow for comparison and context. The selections provide the study’s results in the specific area and the general context and strategic implications from the full study, all at a fraction of the cost.


Among the selections, you’ll find:

I. Executive Summary (15 pages) —Included in this selection is the complete executive summary from the full neurotherapeutics report, providing you with an overview of the entire neurotherapeutics market and top-level numbers on such neurological diseases as peripheral neuropathy and Alzheimer’s disease, among others for the top seven world markets. The executive summary outlines the context of the entire neurology market and how Parkinson’s disease therapeutics fit in.

II. Introduction (2 pages) —Selection includes the overview of Parkinson’s, including prevalence estimates.

III. Treatment (10 pages) —This selection reviews current treatment protocols and the agents used in various movement disorders, including Parkinson’s disease, dystonia, essential tremor, and tic disorders.

IV. Progress and Promise in Therapeutic Development (27 pages) —Because progress on other neurotherapeutic fronts can have significant impact on Parkinson’s therapeutics, information about all of the developments in neurogenomics and neural implants that the full study covered are included in this selection. Information specific to Parkinson’s disease includes Table 4-13: Active Clinical Trials Involving Parkinson’s Disease.

V. World Market Analysis (28 pages, including 10 tables and 4 figures) —Selection provides complete projections and growth rates for Parkinson’s therapeutics in each of the top world markets. Growth rates for potential Parkinson’s markets and those of other major neurological diseases are included, along with total world numbers for comparison.
