BRAF Kinase Inhibitors Market, by Drug (Vemurafenib, Dabrafenib, Lifirafenib, and Encorafenib), by Indication (Metastatic Melanoma, Metastatic Lung Cancer, and Others), by Distribution Channel (Hospital Pharmacies, Retail Pharmacies, and Online Pharmacies), and by Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa) - Size, Share, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2020 - 2027.
BRAF is a kinase enzyme that helps control cell growth and signalling. It may be found in a mutated (changed) form in some types of cancer, including melanoma and colorectal cancer. Blocking mutated BRAF kinase proteins may help keep cancer cells from growing. Some BRAF kinase inhibitors are used to treat cancer. About 50 % of melanomas harbors activating BRAF mutations (over 90 % V600E). BRAFV600E has been implicated in different mechanisms underlying melanomagenesis, most of which due to the deregulated activation of the downstream MEK/ERK effectors. Two compounds (vemurafenib and dabrafenib) have achieved approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of metastatic and unresectable BRAF-mutated melanomas.
Key players in the BRAF kinase inhibitors market are focusing on obtaining patents, which is expected to create more opportunities for BRAF kinase inhibitor drugs manufacturers in the emerging economies. For instance, in September 2016, Novartis International AG secured an Indian patent for its skin cancer (melanoma) drug Tafinlar, which is used for the treatment of metastatic melanoma, the most serious and life-threatening type of skin cancer that is associated with low survival rates.
However, one of the challenges in BRAF kinase inhibitors market is patient adherence. Due to the high cost of BRAF kinase inhibitor drugs, patients are shifting from the actual treatment regime to alternatives of cancer treatments. Alternative methods available for cancer treatments is expected to hinder growth of the BRAF kinase inhibitors market in the near future. For instance, metastatic cancer requires systemic therapy or medications given through mouth or injected into the bloodstream to reach cancer cells throughout the body such as chemotherapy or hormone therapy. Other treatments may include immunotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery or a combination of these.
