The global colorectal cancer drugs market expected to reach US$ 6.9 billion by 2021, growing at CAGR 2.3% over the forecast period 2017-2021, mainly due to colorectal polyps screening and improved treatment over the last few decades.
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a significant challenge to the healthcare system as one of the leading forms of cancer around the world the third most frequently diagnosed malignancy, after lung and breast cancer. According to American Cancer Society (2017), in the US, an estimated 135,430 people will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer. The American Cancer Society’s estimates number of 95,520 new cases of colon cancer and 39,910 new cases of rectal cancer in the United States for 2017. Several lifestyle-related factors have been linked to colorectal cancer such as age, family history of colorectal cancer or adenomatous polyps, being overweight or obese, physical inactivity, certain types of diets, smoking, and heavy alcohol use.
The early stages of non-metastatic CRC (stages I-III) can be treated with surgical resection followed by radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy, whereas patients with mCRC generally receive systemic chemotherapy. The drugs approved by USFDA for colon cancer include Avastin (Bevacizumab), Bevacizumab, Camptosar (Irinotecan Hydrochloride), Capecitabine, Cetuximab, Cyramza (Ramucirumab), Eloxatin (Oxaliplatin), Erbitux (Cetuximab), 5-FU (Fluorouracil Injection), Fluorouracil Injection, Irinotecan Hydrochloride, Leucovorin Calcium, Lonsurf (Trifluridine and Tipiracil Hydrochloride), Nivolumab, Opdivo (Nivolumab), Oxaliplatin, Panitumumab, Ramucirumab, Regorafenib, Stivarga (Regorafenib), Trifluridine and Tipiracil Hydrochloride, Vectibix (Panitumumab), Wellcovorin (Leucovorin Calcium), Xeloda (Capecitabine), Zaltrap (Ziv-Aflibercept), Ziv-Aflibercept. Drug combinations used and approved by USFDA in colon cancer include Capox, Folfiri, Folfiri-Bevacizumab, Folfiri-Cetuximab, Folfox, Fu-Lv, Xeliri, Xelox.
Some common chemotherapy drugs used for colorectal cancer include: 5-Fluorouracil (5-FU), Capecitabine (Xeloda), Irinotecan (Camptosar), Oxaliplatin (Eloxatin), Trifluridine and tipiracil (Lonsurf). Targeted therapy drugs for colorectal cancer include anti- vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapies that stops VEGF from forming new blood vessels and pass nutrients to tumor cells (also known as, anti-angiogenesis therapy). These include monoclonal antibody therapy such as, Bevacizumab (Avastin), Ramucirumab (Cyramza), Ziv-aflibercept (Zaltrap), and Ramucirumab (Cyramza). Anti- epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) therapies target EGFR protein that often appears in high amounts on the surface of cancer cells and helps them grow. These include: Cetuximab (Erbitux), and Panitumumab (Vectibix). Regorafenib (Stivarga) is a type of targeted therapy known as a kinase inhibitor, used to treat advanced colorectal cancer. It blocks several kinase proteins that either help tumor cells grow or help form new blood vessels to feed the tumor. Immune checkpoint inhibitors such as Pembrolizumab (Keytruda) targets PD-1, a protein on immune system cells that normally prevents cells from attacking other cells in the body. Dabrafenib and trametinib, the first BRAF and MEK inhibitor combination drugs are in clinical development. Similarly, Atezolizumab, Binimetinib, Cobimetinib, Encorafenib, Fruquintinib, Lefitolimod, Masitinib, Napabucasin, Nintedanib, Nivolumab, OncoVax, and Pembrolizumab are some of the drugs that are in active phase II and phase III clinical development for colorectal cancer.
