DUBLIN, Nov. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Hospital Infection Therapeutics Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.

Covered in this report

The report covers the present scenario and growth prospects of the global hospital infection therapeutics market for the period 2015-2019. To calculate the market size, the report considers revenue generated from the sales of drugs used in the treatment of various hospital-acquired infections such as bloodstream infections, Clostridium difficile infections, hospital-acquired pneumonia, surgical site infections, and urinary tract infections.

Patient assistance programs are expected to boost the growth of the market during the forecast period. Vendors provide co-pay assistance to individuals who purchase the indicated drugs for treating infections. Pfizer's drug Zyvox has a co-pay assistance program to provide financial assistance.

According to the report, surgeries for cardiac, renal, and gastrointestinal disorders and cesarean section for childbirth are commonly performed currently. Many individuals also choose esthetic enhancement surgeries such as maxillofacial and prosthetic surgeries. This leads to increased exposure to microbes in the hospital environment, thus leading to infections and other complications. Surgeries increase the length of stay in the hospital and individuals are at greater risk of contracting infections.

Further, the report states that generic drugs are similar in quality, dosage form, strength, and efficacy to branded drugs, but are available at lower prices. A branded drug can be manufactured as generic after losing its patent. Many of the anti-infective drugs such as ceftriaxone, ampicillin, ampicillin and sulbactam, and ertapenem, are available as generics in the market.
