The Prostate Cancer market has seen a number of progressive changes in recent years. The launches of Johnson & Johnson's Zytiga (abiraterone acetate) and Medivation/Astellas's Xtandi (enzalutamide) has reinvigorated the post-chemo treatment segment, while launch of the first cancer vaccine Provenge (sipuleucel-T; Dendreon) and Zytiga's expanded approval had finally given new options in the pre-chemo setting.

With similar efficacy and tolerability profiles, Zytiga and Xtandi are currently vying for first-line status in both the post and pre-chemo disease settings as both drugs are set to generate blockbusting revenues despite clinical and health payer concerns about the high cost of treatment. The recentaddition of Xofigo, the first licensed alpha-emitter in prostate cancer, also represents a paradigm shift in treatment.

Competition in the major segments of prostate cancer are set to intensify, with new hormone drugs, radiation therapy, chemotherapy add-ons and immunotherapies in the pipeline. The high level of unmet need, premium pricing and patient population growth continue to make the market an attractive proposition for ‘would be' developers. There remains a significant opportunity to generate substantial revenues in this highly-segmented disease, in the therapeutic segment and alsoin advanced diagnostics.
