Hepatocellular Carcinoma - Opportunity Analysis and Forecasts to 2029

·4-min read

Summary Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most frequent type of primary malignancy of the liver. The prognosis of HCC is dependent on the stage of the disease at diagnosis.

New York, April 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- announces the release of the report "Hepatocellular Carcinoma - Opportunity Analysis and Forecasts to 2029" -

However, even with treatments such as surgical resection, liver transplantation, and ablative therapies, which are only suitable for early-stage HCC patients, the majority of patients are likely to progress onto the advanced stages of the disease.Until the entry of Roche’s combination therapy of Avastin + Tecentriq in May 2020, Bayer’s multikinase inhibitor commanded the largest first-line and second-line patient share in the HCC market.

This led to a shift in multikinase inhibitor monotherapy as standard of care (SOC) and initiated a new strategy in the HCC market whereby combinations are now the predominant therapeutic option under development.

The pipeline drugs in development for HCC are mostly already approved for other indications and HCC represents a growth strategy for the brands.There are currently nine pipeline products in Phase III clinical trial; additionally, seven marketed agents are in clinical trials to expand their labels in new lines of therapy and new combinations within HCC.

The most common MOAs under investigation for HCC include tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) and immuno-oncology (IO) agents (programmed cell death 1 (PD-1)/programmed death ligand 1 (PD-L1) inhibitors, and cytotoxic T-lymphocyte associated protein 4 (CTLA-4) inhibitors). In addition to the active late-stage pipeline, there are a large number of ongoing Phase I and II trials.

Key Highlights
- Upon approval of Avastin + Tecentriq by the FDA, in May 2020, the combination replaced the SoC in first-line advanced HCC, shifting Nexavar and Lenvima to second-line treatment options.
- The greatest drivers of growth in the global HCC market include the launch of new pipeline therapies, combinations of therapies with different MOAs, label expansion from other oncology indications to HCC, and label expansion into earlier lines of therapy, in addition to an increase in diagnosed incident cases in many 8MM countries.
- The main barrier to growth in the HCC market is patent expiration of key biologic brands with subsequent biosimilar launch.
- The most important unmet needs in the HCC market are better HCC surveillance and prophylactic treatments, curative therapies in early-stage HCC, improved survival for intermediate-stage HCC, data on sequencing of treatments, prognostic biomarkers, treatments for patients with impaired liver function.
