DUBLIN, January 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( have announced the addition of the "Liver Cancer (Hepatocellular Carcinoma): Disease and Pipeline Analysis" report to their offering.

     (Logo: )

This report offers a unique therapeutic assessment and in-depth market and pipeline analysis, providing a view of the hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer) market not available elsewhere. The purpose of this report is to give an extensive overview of the current and future liver cancer market, the activities of the key market players and the issues surrounding drug development.

This report provides the pharmaceutical industry with a therapeutic assessment, pipeline analysis, and unique insight into the current clinical trial environment for the hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) market.

HCC is the fifth most common cancer diagnosed globally in men, is the third most common cause of cancer death, and because only one systemic therapy is available, remains a highly underserved disease, explained Andrew Schafer, President of ISR. With high incidence and morbidity rates and a lack of available effective therapies, significant commercial opportunity exists for this orphan drug class.

To support this opportunity, ISR's newest report provides a thorough disease overview, discusses major and emerging markets, and compiles an analysis of ongoing and recently completed HCC trials registered on to shed light on trial activity (reported in aggregate and by industry sponsors).

With this report, sponsors can learn how products in the pipeline could compete in this market, identify strategic development opportunities, plan global clinical trial and market access strategies, and assess the competition with a full analysis of companies participating in this market, Schafer explained.

Additionally, ISR's report provides a thorough analysis of 10 products currently in early and late phase development that could result in promising new therapies.

Signal transduction pathways involved in tumor cell proliferation, resistance to apoptosis, stimulation of angiogenesis, invasiveness, and metastasis have been implicated in HCC and, therefore, are interesting targets for new therapies, Schafer explained.
