PharmaPoint: Hepatitis C Virus - United Kingdom Drug Forecast and Market Analysis

Summary

GlobalData has released its new Country report, "PharmaPoint: Hepatitis C Virus - United Kingdom Drug Forecast and Market Analysis". Hepatitis C is a liver infection caused by the hepatitis C virus (HCV) that results in acute or chronic presentation. The disease is often asymptomatic, but infected patients may experience fatigue, joint pain, itchy skin or jaundice. There is no effective vaccine against HCV, so the market is driven by therapeutics. Currently, drug combinations containing pegylated interferon (e.g., Roche's Pegasys and Merck's PegIntron) and ribavirin (e.g., Roche's Copegus and Merck's Rebetol) are used to treat HCV infection. Patients infected with HCV genotype 1 can also have a protease inhibitor added to their combination therapy, such as Merck's Victrelis (boceprevir) or Vertex's Incivek (telaprevir). The entrance of next-generation HCV therapies is expected to fundamentally change the HCV treatment algorithm. GlobalData expects a dramatic shift favoring the uptake of interferon-free regimens due to their more tolerable side-effect profiles and decreased duration of therapy compared with the current standard of care.

The anticipated drivers of growth in the UK market included increased awareness of HCV, the launch of improved HCV regimens, and advocacy for access to next-generation therapies.

Janssen's Incivo is the current market leader in the UK. Incivo was among the first DAA HCV therapies launched in the UK. The regimen had an improved efficacy compared with the previous standard of care for HCV GT1, a combination of peginterferon and ribavirin. GlobalData assumes that Incivo's shorter duration of triple-therapy (i.e., DAA, peginterferon, and ribavirin) compared with Merck's Victrelis enabled it to outcompete Victrelis for market share. Incivo and Victrelis are both associated with adverse events, which has resulted in HCV-infected patients in the UK deciding to forego therapy in order to await the launch of more-tolerable HCV therapies.
