Neuropathic Pain: Competing Treatments and Market Entry Considerations

  • BioPharm Reports (VennBio Ltd.)

This report presents the findings of a global study of current therapeutic approaches to the treatment of Neuropathic Pain (NP). These findings were made following the participation of more than 330 clinics, who provided details of their treatments and prescribing practices. This was carried out as part of a competitor insight and market entry study, in the neuropathic pain field.

With estimated prevalence levels of 3-10%, the treatment of Neuropathic Pain (NP) remains an area of significant unmet need. NP is highly individual in its presentation, level, underlying pathology and response to therapy. For some patients, available therapies give satisfactory pain control. For many others, treatments are poor or do not work at all. Therapeutic options include more than ten drug classes, which are commonly prescribed in combinations tailored to individual patient needs.

Overview:

- Comprehensive details of current treatments for NP, provided by more than 330 clinics in 56 countries

- In-depth information relevant to markets and opportunities in the NP field

- 98% of participants are practicing physicians, working in specialised areas of pain treatment. READ MORE >
