18 Sep 2013 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Due to the rapid growth in the number of cancer patients, pharmaceutical companies have stepped up investment into oncology studies with a focus on monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) – laboratory-produced molecules made to attach to specific defects in cancer cells. In 2012, about 13 million people were affected by cancer. By 2020, the number of patients diagnosed with cancer is expected to reach 17 million.

Various cancer mAbs are already available in the market, and there also those that are currently under discovery or development. That majority of the mAbs in the pipeline are in phase III trials with most of them devoted to solid tumour, lung cancer, breast cancer, and NHL. The approval of these drugs will drive a major change in the market in terms of market share of current drugs. Currently assessed at USD 24 billion, the cancer monoclonal antibodies market is expected to be worth nearly USD 34 billion by end-2017.

Topical report “Cancer Monoclonal Antibodies Market Forecast to 2017” developed by RNCOS provides a comprehensive analysis of the cancer monoclonal antibodies market. The study includes valuable information on the key trends and drivers of the market, market size and share. It offers an in-depth overview of the global burden of cancer, with breakdowns of incidences by type and geography. A detailed overview of monoclonal technology enables to understand the various types of antibodies and the diverse types of cancer therapies which use mAbs.
