PharmaPoint: Crohns Disease - Canada Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022
The Crohns disease (CD) market is currently very dynamic, with novel biologic therapies on the horizon. These compounds will challenge the current biologics in an attempt to dislodge the stronghold of the TNF inhibitors, as they aim to tap into the lucrative portion of the CD therapeutics market. If their promising safety and efficacy profiles translate to clinical practice once they enter the market, their launch will be to the detriment of the existing market leaders, Remicade (infliximab) and Humira (adalimumab).The loss of patent protection of the anti-TNF marketed brands will allow for the emergence of biosimilars, such as Hospiras Inflectra (infliximab) a Remicade biosimilar. Focusing on country dynamics, Canada and the emerging markets of China and India will also play a key role in driving growth in the long term, with each market forecast to post positive Compound Annual Growth Rates (CAGRs) from 2012 to 2022, primarily due to the anticipated strong uptake of Remicade over the forecast period.

The peak age for the diagnosis of CD in over 65% of cases in Canada is 1740 years, and the diagnosis is typically confirmed by clinical evaluation and a combination of hematological, endoscopic, histological, or imaging-based investigations following the initial presenting symptoms of abdominal pain, diarrhea, and weight loss, or the more common systemic symptoms of malaise, anorexia, and fever.
