Market Dynamics

Major factors that are expected to augment growth of the primary sclerosing cholangitis market include increasing number of organizations focusing on clinical innovation and scientific progress on understanding the mechanisms and risk factors for primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC). For instance, the International PSC study group (IPSCSG), founded in 2010, aims to coordinate PSC research projects between leading institutions worldwide, thereby allowing feasible translational research and advancing efficient research. Also, increasing number of clinical and preclinical trials conducted by the research universities and pharmaceuticals companies is expected to favor market growth over the forecast period.

Global Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis Market- Optimistic Scenario:

Currently, over five products are in clinical trials Phase 2 and some of them have shown good results in Phase 2. For instance, ASEOP trial, testing Obeticholic acid (OCA) for primary sclerosing cholangitis, is being conducted by Intercept Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Also, Shire Plc. completed Phase 2 clinical trial for the drug candidate LUM001 in February, 2016.

If these potential molecules pass through the advanced clinical trials phase (i.e. Phase 3) and secure regulatory approval, these would be among the first-to-get-approval for this disease.

Increasing incidence of liver failure and bile cancer associated with PSC

Increasing prevalence of diseases associated with PSC such as liver cancer and inflammatory bowel disease is expected to enhance the therapeutic adoption of efficient drugs to manage the condition, thus driving growth of the primary sclerosing cholangitis market. According to the World Journal of Gastroenterology, 2017, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is diagnosed in around 50-80% of the patients with PSC, with ulcerative colitis (UC) comprising around 80-90% of these cases.

Affordable options in comparison with the currently available treatments is expected to increase the adoption of PSC drugs

Currently, liver transplant is the only known cure for primary sclerosing cholangitis and is one of the major causes for liver transplantation in the U.S. However, as per the survey by Mayo Clinic, the disease is expected to recur in the transplanted liver in 27.2% of the patients, thereby demanding efficient and affordable therapeutic solutions to cater to unmet patient needs. According to the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS), 2011, estimated bill charges of a liver transplant procedure is around US$ 577,100 in the U.S.
