Anti-Infective Drugs Markets
Six infectious diseases--pneumonia, tuberculosis, diarrheal diseases, malaria, measles and HIV/AIDS--account for half of all premature deaths worldwide, killing mostly children and young adults, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Moreover, threatening pandemics such as swine flu (H1N1 influenza A virus) are adding significant pressure to already strained healthcare budgets of governments around the world. This report TriMark Publications analyzes the anti-infective drugs market and highlights the existing and developing anti-infectives used to ameliorate infectious diseases' afflictions on humankind. Anti-infective drugs include: anti-viral therapeutics, antibiotics, anti-fungal agents and prophylactic treatments such as vaccines. Particular attention is paid to the clinical market segment and the pharmaceutical/biotechnology companies involved in anti-infective drugs with specific emphasis on each company's sales focus, product portfolio and R&D pipeline. To date, the most successful anti-infective drugs target the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV, the virus that causes AIDS), the herpes virus (HSV-1 and HSV-2), bacterial infections and hepatitis C (HCV). A number of exciting novel anti-viral and antibiotic compounds are currently revolutionizing anti-infective drugs markets, including Truvada and Valtrex, which are anti-HIV and anti-herpes therapies, respectively. Significant resources are also being dedicated toward hepatitis A (HAV), hepatitis B (HBV) and Staph infections, including MRSA. What's more, this study will examine the existing and developing anti-infective drugs targeted at infectious diseases that continue to devastate developing countries, including: cholera, dengue fever, meningitis, rotavirus, typhoid and yellow fever.
