The global idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis treatment market expected to reach US$ 3.5 billion by 2021, growing at CAGR 14.4% over the forecast period 2017-2021, owing to increasing drug prices and rapid approval of new treatments.
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a rare, but serious lung disease. According to the National Institutes of Health, about 100,000 people in the United States have IPF, and approximately 30,000 to 40,000 new cases are found each year. Worldwide, IPF affects 13 to 20 out of every 100,000 people. Common comorbid medical conditions found in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, obstructive sleep apnea, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and coronary artery disease. According to Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, the mon-pharmacologic management of pulmonary fibrosis (PF) to manage symptoms and prevent future complications includes home pulse oximetry, pulmonary rehabilitation, vaccination, weight management, and lung transplantation. In the United States; in 2013, PF accounted for nearly half of all lung transplants performed.
Several different medications have been used for the treatment of PF. Corticosteroids (prednisone), Cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan), Azathioprine (Imuran), Mycophenolate mofetil (Cellcept, Myfortic), N-acetylcysteine (NAC), Nintedanib (Ofev), Pirfenidone (Esbriet, Pirfenex, Pirespa), and Proton pump inhibitors (Prilsec OTC, Nexium, others). Some of the therapeutic approaches currently being studied include anti-fibrotic therapies, inhibitors of “growth factor” proteins, stem cell therapies, and genetic research. In 2014, US-FDA approved two anti-fibrotic medications are drugs that inhibit or reduce fibrosis in the lung: Ofev (nintedanib) and Esbriet (pirfenidone) for the treatment of patients with IPF.
